Yesterday we received news that shook us. Our friend and founding Underoath member Corey Steger died suddenly this week. He was an uncommonly caring person. He was constantly striving to be a better version of himself not just for himself but to be the best example of God’s love to his wife and two children who he loved more than anything. We would not be who we are without him, period. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Godspeed, Corey.

See the scenario of the upcoming motion picture, APOLLO, a film that will feature some of the events of my life and my music.

APOLLO tells the story of Paul, a celebrated ‘playlist curator’ at the popular global music streaming company Apollo. When confronted with the peak of his success, Paul spends a summer’s day on a musical odyssey through Amsterdam that slowly but surely forces him to choose between his life’s ambitions and the things he is expected to sacrifice to make his dreams come true.

Shooting begins Spring 2021. The production company for APOLLO is nominated for this year's Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language - ANOTHER ROUND. #NoTheEndIsNotNear

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE USE

CHARLIE PEACOCK’S NEW ALBUM SKIN & WIND ‘SHINES’
CRITICS RAVE OVER CP’S NEW VOCAL PROJECT / RELEASES JAN. 15

GRAMMY Award-winning record producer Charlie Peacock releases his highly-anticipated 14th career vocal studio album Skin and Wind this Friday, January 15. Peacock is considered amongst the top names in terms of his career impact on the music industry, and his new album sings a message of faith, hope, and love.

“The metaphor of wind has been front and center for the poetic mind since the spark of time and human reflection,” shares Charlie Peacock about the theme behind the title of his album Skin and Wind. “And then there is skin – a sheath of magic holding us together; skin as the beloved community. The faith-forming mystery of Emmanuel is that He is the God of skin. Put skin together with wind, and all manner of Spirit, mystery, and motion come clean. And if you dare feel it, in part or total, there is a mind bend on offer.”

This 10-track project is turning the heads of music critics. Dave Trout from UTR Media shares: “Skin and Wind shines – a true musical ray of light at a time when we desperately need it.” Larry Stephan from The Phantom Tollbooth suggests: “Charlie Peacock is a songwriting tour de force, with every song on Skin and Wind pushing back against the darkness and calling to the listener to a place of hope.”

On Skin and Wind, Peacock surrounds himself with some of the most-respected artists in Nashville, including engineering, mixing, and mastering from long-time collaborator Richie Biggs [Jon Foreman, Joy Williams, Steven Curtis Chapman]. Other world-class musicians, like Jeff Taylor, Jerry McPherson, Ruby Amanfu, and 2021 GRAMMY nominee Sam Ashworth (who is also Charlie’s son) also contribute their talents to the project.

All songs on Skin and Wind are written and produced by Peacock. The new album will release on all streaming and digital music platforms on January 15, and that same day limited run of physical CDs will be available at charliepeacock.com.
