“On March 16th, the Ancient Baby Home-fi album will be live on all streaming platforms. To herald the occasion, I’ve whipped up a home-made video, in the spirit of that home-recorded album. “Comin’ Round Again” is a song about the internet, about paper and vinyl, about messages in bottles and arrows in tornadoes.
This video is dedicated to memory of my uncle, Bob Theobald.
To stream the Ancient Baby Home-fi record, you can pre-save it and hear it on March 16th: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/chr…
Or, if you’d like to hear it right away, you can purchase a download, CD or book here on Bandcamp: https://peckthetowncrier.bandcamp.com…
Yours in music, Peck”

Chris Peck the Town Crier has been releasing albums since his first cassette in 1994. His music has been featured on Buzzfeed, Current TV, MTV.com, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Wall Street Journal. In addition to his own albums, Peck has recently contributed to the film score for ‘Gardeners of Eden’ (Netflix) and ‘The Water at Bay’ (Waterbound Pictures).
His most recent release is ‘Ancient Baby’, recorded once by Ethan Turner at the fabled Owl Mountain Studio and again by Peck at home. ‘Ancient Baby’ contains 13 songs about love, mystery and the health of our planet. A multi-instrumentalist, Peck performed most of the album, with some clutch guest appearances by: Miriam Speyer, Luke Westbrook, Cameron Snyder (the deslondes), and Kim Ortman. The most frequent guest on the album was Adam Bowers, steel guitarist and backing vocalist for the Ancient Baby live unit.
This album has been released on 12” vinyl, double CD, and an illustrated book. All of these versions feature whimsical and poignant art by Rose Pearson, who made 18 companion drawings for the album.
Several music videos from the album have been released, some narrative, others featuring footage from the studio or showcasing the Ancient Baby band. All of these can be seen at http://www.peckthetowncrier.com/video.
