About Chris Peck

Albums are my life.

To hide out and make a recording... it’s the happiest and most liberating thing I’ve got. But over this past year, as I released my 17th and 18th albums, I felt a new sense of completion:

Maybe I’d stop making albums for a while. Pay off my debt. Work on healing my forearm tendonitis. Fall in love and make it last. Run in the hills. Grow some vegetables out back. Cook more at home. Lose my potbelly. Get a steady teaching gig.

It's not that a career in music must live in opposition to these things, but for me it was starting to feel that way. It's a sacrifice, putting one's art forever in first place, giving it the cream off the top of the soul. But after some creamy soul-searching, I've arrived at something: it's not the creative process that was draining me, but the cumbersome business of making and marketing a final draft.

Which brings us here, to my Patreon. Welcome. Here, I'll continue making music, but in first draft form. I'll record songs and instrumentals, and write about the musicians that I love. Here, we can cut through the noise of social media, as I send these first drafts straight to your email inbox, like pages torn from a journal.

Here, we can also correspond about your music and writing. For years, people have sent me their recordings, essays, scripts, all manner of art, asking for feedback. I love these exchanges, and now I'll be able to give a larger piece of my time to them, through this Patreon.

Presently, the entire globe is approaching a lockdown, as we quarantine and hope for the best in an unfolding pandemic. This is my first effort to respond to the situation, but also to pivot as an artist, communicating more directly with you, my inner circle.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for your support. Let's stay in touch.
