In his mid-20s, he moved to London to study acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and later starred in a play on the West End.

Later, he began acknowledging his country music passion after the release of his song “Dead of Night” in 2017. In January 2019, Sub Pop announced the upcoming release of the first Orville album by posting a David Lynch-inspired video for his debut single “Dead of Night,” with a second, equally surreal video for “Turn to Hate” following in February. The album Pony arrived in March 2019.

That same year, he recorded a steel guitar-influenced cover of Bronski Beat’s “Smalltown Boy” as part of a Pride Month digital singles series, as well as a pair of Righteous Brothers covers with vocalist Paul Cauthen under the banner of the Unrighteous Brothers.

Recently, he was able to release his second album The Bronco, which paired his expansive voice with full-bodied production and arrangements that added accents of rockabilly, ’60s pop, psychedelia, and bluegrass to his mix. In addition, the song “All I Can Say” featured a duet vocal with Bria Salmena, a member of the Canadian indie rock band Frigs who moonlights in Peck’s road band.

Moreover, he also appeared on the song “Jackson”, a duet cover of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. It was also revealed that he is the sixth artist on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary, with Peck reimagining the song “Born This Way” in a country style.
