Luke Daniel Peacock

Has - in the last few years - been doing his musical apprenticeship under the spell of his big brothers - Brisbane indie cult heroes
. Luke's song 'Dropout' - produced by Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens) and Peter Jesperson (The Replacements) - was nominated for Best Rock Song in the 2015 Queensland Music Awards, with The Australian declaring the song a "ludicrously catchy instant-classic that is at once familiar and unique".

Luke was also the frontman and driving force behind the groundbreaking and AIR award nominated album 'The Painted Ladies Play Selections From The Loner'. Produced by Rusty Hopkinson (You Am I) and featuring collaborations with such artists as The Medics, Paul Kelly, Ed Kuepper (The Saints/The Laughing Clowns), Ian Haug (The Church/Powderfinger), members of The Bamboos and many more,

The album saw Peacock reviving the lost songs of Vic Simms. Highly documented, the project spawned an acclaimed live show, with performances at Brisbane Festival, Womadelaide, Melbourne's NGV and the NIMA's in Darwin. The Music declared the show
"a remarkable achievement.. with such a reconciliatory and celebratory grandeur".

In February 2016, Luke Daniel Peacock released his debut, self-produced solo album 'We've Come a Long Way Darling', again, to much acclaim. He was awarded the Billy Thorpe Scholarship at the Queensland Music Awards, as well as a QMA for the single 'Fruits Of Our Labour'. The album stretches wide across the spectrum of indie-rock and displays Peacock's knack for going deep, whilst keeping his honest, sometimes humorous perspectives in check. At once conveying hopelessness and providing hope.
