Great Peacock is an Americana rock band whose indie sensibilities blend well with their Southern roots. Their official bio reads, “You can call Great Peacock a folk band… but don’t expect them to make music for campfires or square dances. Raised in the Deep South and headquartered in Nashville, they’re a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: Making Ghosts — the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album — whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock.”
“Nelson and Floyd first crossed paths in their early 20s, bonding instantly over a shared love of cheap beer and good Southern music. After logging several years together in a loud, Tennessee-based rock band, they split off to form their own project, swapping out the amplified swagger of their previous group for a straightforward sound anchored by acoustic guitars, anthemic melodies and two intertwined voices. Like an old-school harmony duo re-tuned for a new generation, they started off with a handful of classic influences — the country croon of George Jones, the working class rock & roll of Bruce Springsteen, the heartland hum of Tom Petty — and expanded their sound from there, turning Great Peacock into the sort of band that’s simultaneously rooted in tradition and headed toward new territory.”
