Peach releases spring single "Zooming In", a tribute to maps

New release May 3, 2024: “Zooming In" by Peach on a beach (Larry Peach) is a hip hop, synthpop, over the top tribute to Peach's lifelong love of maps and a tongue-in-cheek take on how their use has changed over time. 

Essential listening for geography nerds and technophiles.

So yours truly plays an old school goofball in a light-hearted video about my passion for geography, maps and nostalgia. 

Thanks to Shawn from Greenlight Studios for shooting the footage and to Paul from The Music Box Recording Studio in Clare for the fab mixing and mastering!   

Stay tuned for more new singles in the upcoming months!

Peach releases "Rabbit Hole" as first single in 2024

Compared to his whimsical debut, the first single from Peach on a beach’s upcoming sophomore album All Over the Map hints at exploring more contemporary themes.

“Rabbit Hole” is a detour to the dark side, a reminder about the futility of arguing with online. 

The dark wave song is also an homage to The Cure, one of my biggest influences from the 80’s. Hypnotic synths and heavy percussion accompany ominous lyrics and vocals, reminiscent of alternative artists of the era.

"Rabbit Hole" is also the first single I mixed and mastered in my home studio.

I wanted to create a trippy music video to promote the single -- click link below to watch on YouTube.  

Stay tuned for more new singles in the upcoming months!

2023 Peach on a beach highlights

2023 was a fab and crazy ride for my music project!

I’d like to thank everyone who helped realize the dream by partnering on a project, streaming a song and/or buying a CD.

Some of the year’s highlights:

💿 Recording a debut album/CD with Paul @ The Music Box Recording Studio in Clare
💿 Creating two fun videos with Shawn @ Greenlight Studios
💿 Making a logo with Amy @ Atelier Amy Paradis and an artist website with Marc @ ghostjunk, thanks in part to marketing funding from Music Nova Scotia
💿 Participating in interviews on Eastlink TV with Tony, Lisa Doucette and TVGuyMichael
💿 Reaching number 1 twice (!!) on the East Coast Top 30 for “Beeping and Bleeping” (Jan. 14) and “Pizza Corner” (May 20). "Pizza Corner landed at no. 26 on the CIOE year-end chart. Thanks again for your votes! 🙏
💿 Creating a holiday song “Charlie Brown Christmas Tree” with my wife/number 1 supporter Joelle ❤️
Now for 2024. I took an extra week off in December to work on new material. In fact, some songs have been 2 years in the making. I’ve got at least 10 on the go and can’t wait to share ‘em with you!

Happy New Year and see ya in '24! 🙏💿🙏
