"Really special... great melodies and lyrics" -- Baby Sue "Wonderfully diverse and eclectic... top-notch songwriting" -- Mad Mackerel If you like monophony, homemade and/or found percussion instruments, and any combination of Bowie, Beck, Waits, Reed, Talking Heads, Radiohead, or Nick Cave, you'll probably maybe kinda like Dubious Ranger. Peck The Town Crier
PECK THE TOWN CRIER is a multi-instrumentalist Song-Rap raconteur. He has been featured on MTV.com, the Wall Street Journal.com, KQED and a growing raft of rags. Peck's 10 albums have fetched comparisons to George Clinton, Frank Zappa, Beck, and Jonathan Richman. On stage and in the studio, he has worked with MC Lars, the Naked Hearts, the Jazz Mafia and others. "Home Phone / Ghost of Payphone" is Peck's latest album, which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign last fall. Home again in Fairfax CA, after a summer tour of the Pacific Northwest, Peck has just released a video for KALIMBA, his latest single.
