Charlie Peacock Album Release feat. Andy Davis, Emily West, Lauren Shera & more 

When: Tue., Oct. 2, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $10
Charlie Peacock’s done loads of things besides produce The Civil Wars: He made a free-form jazz album with Jeff Coffin, co-wrote one of Amy Grant’s biggest pop hits, helped steer the high-gloss modern pop-rock band Switchfoot toward crossover success, penned the most sensual R&B-pop number CCM’s ever seen. And that’s a very abbreviated list. But the rootsiness of the Wars’ Barton Hollow must’ve sparked something in him, judging from his new solo project, No Man’s Land. It’s an Americana album in the same sense that Paul Simon’s Graceland is a world music album. At the heart of it is Peacock’s distinctive, jazzed-up, hook-and-groove-centric studio architecture, through which he’s filtered Southern textures and down-home scenes. You’ll hear fiddle and countrified guitar licks during the funky “Beauty Left the Room,” for instance, but the vocal timbre — taut, grainy and soulful, more akin to Peter Gabriel than any singer who took the stage at this year’s Americana Fest — couldn’t belong to anybody but Peacock.
