Orville Peck is a country musician based in Canada. He wears a fringed mask and has never shown his face publicly. He released his debut album Pony in 2019,followed by the EP Show Pony the next year. His second studio album Bronco was released on April 8, 2022.

Peck was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and lived there most of his life. As a child, Peck did not receive any formal music training, he taught himself music by playing on an acoustic guitar and an old Casio keyboard. He is the son of a sound engineer, and he did voice-over work for cartoons and other media as a child. Growing up, he trained in ballet for 12 years, and performed in musical theatre. By the time he was in his early 20s, Peck had been on national tours of musicals.

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.

"Orville Peck" is a pseudonym; he has been described as "presumably older than 20 and younger than 40". Regarding his reasons for wearing a mask to perform, Peck has stated that "the only reason I don't talk about it in depth is not because I want to dodge any questions, but because I want people to have their own take on it. I don't want to lay it out and pin it down. I just don't think that's important." User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
