They say you are never too old to try new things.
This fall I launched Peach on a beach - a new music project that began during the pandemic.
I invite you to join me on a musical journey, where for starters, I will be exploring a world of 80s and 90s nostalgia.
Now in my early 50s, the stability of my career and the soul-searching journey of the pandemic created the ideal opportunity to purchase a synthesizer/drum machine and DAW and get serious about making electronic music.
Inspired and influenced by 80s new wave and hip hop, 90s dance and downtempo, I have created 15 original demos since dabbling with making original music over the last year.
In May 2022, I recorded my debut single "Beeping and Bleeping", mastered in a local studio by industry professional Paul Morris of The Music Box.
"Beeping and Bleeping" is a hip hop track about my experience as a young teen partaking in the first generation of kids who enjoyed playing stand-alone video games in arcades.
The lyrics recall the iconic early 1980s video games, and the nostalgic vibe of the song naturally lends itself in making a captivating video.
Visit my new Facebook page for some behind-the-scenes images from the video shoot.
So, follow along as Larry Peach, aka the tourism manager for the Municipality of Clare also becomes Peach on a beach.
Hailing from Dartmouth and based in Clare, Nova Scotia, Peach on a beach is Larry Peach. Inspired and influenced by 80s new wave and hip hop, 90s dance and downtempo, Peach on a Beach is recording several singles prior to the release of his upcoming EP called Flashbacks.
