Orville Peck x Pamela Love Collection
Orville and Pam met about ten years ago at a house show in North Carolina. Since then the two creatives have stayed close throughout their careers.
Orville has known and admired Pamela's work even before they met. Pam gave him a ring many years ago that was part of a collaboration project, a ring that he wears almost every day to this date. So it was only natural for Orville to think of Pamela when he wanted to create a piece of jewelry to reflect his vision.
Pam and Orville both credit American folklore as an inspiration in their craft. Pam with her signature motif jewelry and Orville with his music which critics say is revitalizing a genre of music that is typically seen as conservative.
The ring is inspired by Orville's signature handmade, fringed masks, which obscure his features except for a pair of ice-blue eyes, belie his deeply personal lyrics. Featuring Peck’s signature masked look, the Orville Peck Ring comes in a small and large version in sterling silver and brass.
About Orville Peck
Orville made his professional debut earlier this year when he released his self-produced debut album, Pony. His signature look, a fringed mask, combined with the fact that no one really knows who Peck is has shaken the classic country music scene making him an underground country sensation.
As a touring musician who has lived on three continents, the nomadic and solitary lifestyle of the cowboy is one that Peck embraces. His masks and theatric stage presence immediately grab audience attention, similar to the way Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash’s larger-than-life images captured him as a young man. However, it’s his voice and his songwriting, influenced by Parton, Loretta Lynn, Townes Van Zandt, and Gram Parsons, that has captivated a fan base as extensive and diverse as his musical tastes.
