ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hi, I'm Peck the Town Crier. This is my latest album, "Groundhog's Day". I call this music "Hist-Hop", because I'm grounding my raps with live music that channels the music of the weird old america. I hope you'll give it a listen! Here's some things the press has said about the record. Thanks for reading, and if this perks your curiousity, please visit my websites.

Marin Independent Journal, Paul Liberatore
“WHEN I FIRST HEARD Peck, I felt a little like Mister Jones in Bob Dylan's ‘Ballad of a Thin Man.’ I knew something was happening, but I didn't know what.
The enigmatic Marin musician - who calls himself Peck the Town Crier - has a new independent album, "Groundhog's Day," his second CD….
I'm intrigued even though I've never heard anything quite like it. It showcases Peck's story raps - on topics like James Brown, his grandfather, coffee, underwear, the joy of living - over eclectic musical tracks melding Brazilian percussion, P-Funk-era party jams, old school rock, boogie woogie, jazz, even marching band drumming - by some of Marin and the Bay Area's finest young musicians.”

SFist.com
"Recorded at the famed Hyde St Studios in San Francisco, Groundhog’s Day blends Peck’s unique story-raps and verbiage with hand played instrumental arrangements that pull from the gambit of American music... It's a bit weird, a bit eccentric, but hey, it's what San Francisco is all about!”

avproductionworld.com
“Hip hop, jazz, marching band, funk, blues –just some of the influences that come through on Groundhog’s Day, the new CD released by Peck the Town Crier. This album is overflowing with attitude arising from the mind of Chris Peck, whose lyrics are full of truth and humor. Eleven tracks that will open your mind and get your body moving are all connected through Peck’s engaging storytelling and rhythms. Peck celebrates the voice as instrument and explores new avenues of rhythmic counterpoint. Every track shines forth with originality...”

Tom Hallett, “Round the Dial” music blog
“Kicking off with “Shout!”, Groundhog’s Day immediately establishes itself as a record jam-packed with positive, sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous lyrics, pounding, dedicated rhythm, and a backing outfit that creates the perfect aural setting for Peck's unique, mile-a-minute delivery: "Shout! Let it out! Let it go, let it go! I'm tellin' you just to let you know!!"

Nate Seltenrich, East Bay Express
“Peck the Town Crier has waged war against predictability. Slowish raps tend toward spoken word and performance art, while low-key backing tracks tap into jazz, funk, bluegrass, marches, and more. Not everything works, but at least nothing is expected.”
