Charlie Peacock

Charlie Peacock is a Grammy Award-winning, multi-format performer, composer and record producer. Peacock's production credits range from Al Green and Ladysmith Black Mambazo to current AAA and Americana successes such as The Lone Bellow, Holly Williams, Ben Rector and Brett Dennen. Most recently, Peacock produced "Misery Chain" for Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell featuring Joy Williams, from the soundtrack to the film, 12 Years A Slave. Peacock began his iconoclastic career in the 1980s as a singer-songwriter for A&M, then Island Records. In addition to his unique solo efforts, Peacock has played a lead role in creating major chart hits in three separate decades—most notably Amy Grant's "Every Heartbeat" (1991), Switchfoot's "Dare You to Move" (2002), The Civil Wars' Gold debut album Barton Hollow (2011) - earning Grammys for Best Folk Album and Country Duo - and the (2013) #1 Billboard debut, The Civil Wars, featuring the co-written single, “The One That Got Away.” In recent years, Peacock's solo output has included his acclaimed singer- songwriter release, No Man's Land (2012), and two jazz/improvisational releases, Love Press Ex-Curio (2005) and Arc of the Circle (2008), a duet collaboration with saxophonist Jeff Coffin

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
