Peach Luffe started from a decision Jong had to make: keep pursuing his passion for song-writing in the West or go back to Korea after college. Music has always been his love. So, he went to Canada.
In Toronto, Jong began as a solo artist and received the 1st prize winner of 2018 Trakscout Original Music Award on his track “Driving Away”. He was also a finalist in the Canadian singing competition The Shot in 2018.
Later, he met up with future bandmates Sean Yerzy, Jonathan Friedman, and Michael Friedman. After performing together for over a year, it was time to make it official by teaming up under the new artist name — Peach Luffe.
Peach Luffe draws influence from both popular and underground music like guitar playing from John Mayer and Mac Demarco, singing from Allen Stone and recent R&B, and melodies from early Coldplay. Some describe their genre as Bedroom-Pop Alternative, but even that is a misnomer.
