Joseph Peck is a musician, educator, and producer of music and educational programs featuring the steel drum instrument (aka steelpan). In 2012 Joseph released his debut solo album titled “Free-Flow Steelpan Meditations, Volume 1”, an album that explores the sonic possibilities of the steel drum.
His single Heartfully Awake released in November of 2014 is a follow up to his debut CD. Heartfully Awake takes the listener into a deep state of inner resonance. In doing so, Peck explores the merging of human biological sounds with the dynamic nature of the steelpan instrument. Heartfully Awake is available for digital download on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3, and Google Play.
As a performing artist, Joseph gives steel drum presentations for the City and County of Los Angeles Libraries, as well as performing live and in the studio for various Latin, reggae, rock, and world music projects. Peck is also a teaching artist faculty member with The Music Center, a program facilitator for Drumming For Your Life Institute, and workshop presenter for the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center Educational Outreach Program.
