Charlie Peacock, Producer of Amy Grant, Switchfoot & Twila Paris, to Release Memoir

Charlie Peacock

Producer of Amy Grant, Switchfoot and Twila Paris, Charlie Peacock is set to release his memoir, Roots & Rhythm: A Life In Music, early next year via William. B. Eerdmans Publishing. The book will touch on his journey from the beginning of his career to now, acting as a tribute to the joy and perseverance in his life in music as well as the ancestral and musical influences that have shaped his career.

He describes the novel as a "chapter-by-chapter remix of the music, places and people that made me and the music I made." Roots & Rhythm: A Life In Music will include retellings of his time developing Switchfoot, producing The Civil Wars, co-writing Amy Grant's "Every Heartbeat" and more.

Peacock's 50-year career as an artist has brought him Grammy Awards, solo albums, hit productions with acts such as Chris Cornell, Holly Williams and more. He is also the Founder of re:think, a label that has signed Switchfoot, among others, and created the Commercial Music program at Nashville's Lipscomb University.

Additionally, Peacock is known for his pioneering contributions to gospel rock and the Americana/Folk movement of the 2000s as well as his jazz explorations with bassist John Patitucci.

Along with the new book, he plans to release a solo album, co-produced with Sam Ashworth, in the near future. Like the novel, the album takes a reflective look backward, using the lessons learned and inspiration gained from the five decades.
