This is Chris Peck, the Town Crier. I call my music HIST-HOP. I try to make fresh sounds, while staying connected to the past. In January, I want to release two short albums in vinyl or download form:
“Home Phone” is all about ROOTS. “Ghost of Payphone” is a wild look at things to come. By uniting these seeming opposites on one record, I hope to show you where I'm from and where I'm going.
Both albums are completely tracked. That means we’ve recorded every note that’s going to be played. Here’s what is left to be done, and where I need your help:
The money I raise with this campaign will go toward professional mixing, mastering, pressing of 500 vinyl records (remember, HOME/GHOST will also be available in digital form), publicity, patches, posters and payment for the brilliant musicians who will help me perform these albums live.
Words fall short...Want to hear the music? Here are working versions of both albums:
I hope you like what you hear! I am grateful for this chance to connect with you all, and invite you into this music making process!
Thank you for reading, for helping me continue to do what I love, and for bringing this project to fruition!
With heart and soul,
Chris Peck, the Town Crier
psst...here is some of the rad artwork to be gifted, and some photos of the HOME/GHOST recording process!
