        p.s. While it can't possibly replace seeing him live, he has performed live on KEXP a few times, if you're interested:

            I feel similar in regard to Peck, and can definitely attest to the latter part! He's also a pretty decent drummer too. ;)

            I always loved country but I didn't feel like country loved me back, until Orville Peck

            Really warms my heart, and adds to my enjoyment of the act. It shows how important representation can be.

            He's also a pretty decent drummer too. ;)
