Masked, Toronto-based goth-country singer Orville Peck has been stirring up a lot of buzz for his debut album Pony, which comes out March 22 via Sub Pop, and which three promising songs have been released from so far. His identity has mostly been kept under wraps, but we knew those tattoos looked familiar, and we finally figured it out. Orville Peck is Daniel Pitout, drummer of Nu Sensae and singer of Eating Out. You may remember that Nu Sensae emerged out of the same Vancouver punk scene as White Lung (whose singer Mish Way played bass in Eating Out), and Daniel got a boost as a singer when EMA took Nu Sensae on tour and brought Daniel on stage to sing covers with her during the encore. Daniel has also lent his voice to albums by White Lung and Hunx and His Punx.

It hasn't entirely been a mystery. Early on, Daniel hyped Orville Peck on his Facebook and Twitter, as did Nu Sensae. He's also credited on Orville Peck's AllMusic page. (It was also a clue early on when the 2017 NYLON feature on Orville mentioned he "has a handful of country tunes and a series called Orville & Friends coming, where he covers songs with musicians like Jen Clavin, Mish Way, 'and some feller named Mac.'")

As mentioned, Orville Peck is going on a North American tour after the album comes out, including a Brooklyn show on April 26 at Elsewhere Zone One (tickets). His live band includes members of fellow Toronto band FRIGS.
