about

Introducing Peaks, a group of young folk-pop balladeers whose musical roots are as diverse as the sundry American landscapes from which they hail. Members of the band span the country in origin, from Chesapeake Bay and New England to the Great Lakes and the Pacific Northwest, but the five of them congregate in the flatlands of Ohio to make truly collaborative music. Their disparate foundations are musical as well as geographic—the musicians in Peaks bring backgrounds in jazz, folk, rock, and electronic together in their sun-drenched, dynamic sound. While working within pop song forms, Peaks carves out their own unique style with gorgeous vocal melodies and harmonies, lush string and wind arrangements, deep grooves, and poetic lyrics. Stereocure is honored to present Young Frisk, Peaks’ debut record.
