Peace is a new-wave indie artist with rapper-like energy on stage who is drawing audiences of the coolest cult kids. Tastemaker support includes Dazed, NME, BBC Radio 1, Apple Music, JME, Lancey Foux, Matty Healy, Mike Skinner, Bloc Party – demonstrating his undeniable impact across different genre boundaries.
This one to watch started the year with ‘Veronica’ selected as the Hottest Record at BBC Radio 1, with the related on-air interview capturing the attention of the Nova Twins, who invited Peace to support them on their spring European tour. Prior to that was the small matter of releasing his EP Peace of Mind (made with Matt Schwartz – the super producer behind the incredible rise of Yungblud) and the accompanying UK tour.
The months flew by and the fan flocked in, catching Peace across Rough Trade performances and signings, The Great Escape festival, Record Store Day, Wonderland magazine, a nomination as ‘One To Watch in association with BBC Music Introducing’ at the 2023 AIM Association of Independent Music Awards, and chosen to support Bilk on tour in November.
Lest we forget previous work: live support for The Streets, the music video for track ‘Country Life’ winning a British Short Film Award, a feature from JME on a previous EP, starring on the remix of SG Lewis track ‘Chemicals’ and ‘Wrong Answers Only’ with The Streets (who he also supported live).
Now, it’s summer 2023 and a new chapter is dawning as new music is being teased…
“Peace of Mind era was so special to me and for me to get recognition for it and what I’ve got coming, I couldn’t be more happy… My journey is just beginning and I can’t wait to show you what’s next.”
