Charlie Peacock's adventurous and success-laden resume makes him a difficult musician to categorize. The Grammy Award-winning, multi-format performer, songwriter and record producer has excelled in pop, gospel, country, Folk-Americana, and jazz.
Peacock began his iconoclastic artist, songwriting and production career in the 1980s with recordings for A&M, Island, and Sparrow/EMI. Alongside his own unique performing and recording career, Peacock has played a lead role in creating major hits in three separate decades—most notably Amy Grant's "Every Heartbeat" (1991), Switchfoot's "Dare You to Move" (2002) and The Civil Wars' Gold debut album Barton Hollow (2011) - earning Grammys for Best Folk Album and Country Duo. Named by Billboard's Encyclopedia of Record Producers as one of the 500 most important record producers in music history, the award-winning artist-producer is known as a deeply committed advocate of artistic freedom and risk. In 2012 Peacock diverted from his recent jazz recordings to produce his own return to vocal performance, the Folk/Americana flavored No Man’s Land.
