ABOUT ICONOCLASM (https://www.carlisleevanspeck.com/)
Listen: “Ash to Ash” – from Iconoclasm (2022)
Iconoclasm is a sweeping ritual-cabaret conceived of by songwriter and performer Carlisle Evans Peck. They are out to queer what it means to be a bard. With stories drawn from familial lore and oral histories, Carlisle invites queer ancestors known and unknown onto the stage and into the spotlight – embodying the bachelor farmers, the coal miner lovers, the genderqueer witches, and the ancestral drag mothers of their family lineage. Part ritual, part music-theater, and backed by a live rock orchestra, Iconoclasm traverses balladry, glam rock, and drag, breaking cracks in the veneer of history to release the glittering forgotten lives within.

ABOUT CARLISLE EVANS PECK
For Minneapolis composer Carlisle Evans Peck, songs are vessels for forgotten tales, landscapes of emotion through which to wander, and spells and offerings. A consummate musical storyteller with a singularly magnetic sense of drama, their solo and collaborative work makes the mythic tangible and the mundane legendary while traversing genres of folk balladry, glam rock, and choral singing. They strive to keep the ancient bardic traditions of storytelling through song alive in the modern age with a sparkling queer flair.
