Chad Peacock is an Australiana songwriter devoted to documenting simple melodies about life. The stripped back foundations of the songs are a clear homage to DIY punk rock past, while intricate overdubs lift emotion with effective simplicity. Chad first picked up a guitar at age sixteen when his sister left home (leaving her guitar behind). The songs started coming immediately and a four track was promptly acquired to capture the ideas. The aspiration to join a band was achieved shortly therafter when he was invited to join his favourite band 'Kerb’. The band went on to record and release their debut album later that year and went on to share the stage with bands such as The Living End, Rancid, and Ash - culminating in a Western Australian Music Industry award for best punk act. Chad then founded the melodic power pop band ‘lewis’ who’s future was cut short by his ever-growing desire to travel. With travel becoming a predominant factor for the next several years, the acoustic guitar and laptop became the practical outlet. sundays away was born out of a desire to record and catalogue the continuing flow of songs that were being written abroad - these songs then led to the 'song a week' project/podcast. The song a Week Project would see a new demo written, recorded, and released online each week for a year (free via podcast). The project surpassed all expectations with thousands of people tuning in weekly to hear the new songs. The project was also regularly featured on the iTunes front page, and consistently charted in the most popular music podcast category garnering many new fans from abroad. The highlights of the project were then taken into the studio and fleshed out into a full-length album. The songs were recorded with a diverse array of musicians, explaining the eclectic mix of sounds and moods captured on the self-titled album which was released to a packed house in the Norfolk basement in 2009. After an extended hiatus sundays away are currently writing and demoing new material for a new album to be released in 2016.
