The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from an enigmatic gay country artist making a splash.
Orville Peck - Big Sky
Orville Peck is described as a masked queer country artist. The name Orville Peck is a pseudonym to hide his identity. No one knows who he is, or how old he is, but there is speculation that he is possibly older than 20 but younger than 40. He has quickly made a major international splash.
Big Sky gives off a dark country / western type of vibe. It foreshadows the type of danger Peck wants to bring to the country music scene. The song showcases a story of flawed lovers and injured minds. The video showcases fast-moving images in order to convey the message of the song.
