CONSIDER THIS: Chris Price - "Stop Talking" (via Coachella Valley Weekly)

""Back in 1968, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were at a press conference to announce the formation of Apple Corps. Famously, they each named Harry Nilsson as their "favorite American singer and group". Nearly 50 years on, if they could answer that question today, there could only be one correct reply, Chris Price. Stop Talking is a masterpiece from start to finish."

Chris Price, the producer for Emitt Rhodes and Linda Perhacs, is readying his second solo album, Stop Talking, for a May 19th release via Omnivore Records.

It’s been five years since Price released his debut solo album, titled Homesick, but there are a few reasons it’s taken this long for a follow-up — he’s been a bit busy as an in-demand producer and musician. But even as he produced critically acclaimed comebacks from Linda Perhacs and Emitt Rhodes, opened for the Who with Tal Wilkenfeld’s band, and wrote songs with Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (JellyfishBeck), Price continued to write and record his own new music. 

Recorded from 2013 to 2016, Stop Talking contains 14 tracks produced, engineered, and arranged by Price, and features a wide variety of sounds and styles. Acoustic tracks (“Once Was True”) meet electric tracks like the title cut. Others are peppered with string arrangements (“Man Down”), Mellotron, and tape loops (“Algebra in the Sky”). Chris was joined in the studio by a variety of top veteran musicians, including Kyle FredricksonBen LecourtFernando PerdomoJoe Seiders, and many others.

According to Price, “I spent the five years since my first album Homesick working on albums for two heroes of mine, Emitt Rhodes and Linda Perhacs. But I never stopped writing and recording material of my own, and both of those incredibly inspiring and fulfilling projects ended up deeply informing my work, pushing me to think harder about my lyrics, become more adventurous in my production and never take the safe route musically.”

Price continues, “I’m very proud of this work, which has been brewing for quite some time. But I should really stop talking and let the music speak for itself.”

Chris Price to release 2nd solo album "Stop Talking" May 19th, 2017

CHRIS PRICE,
PRODUCER FOR EMITT RHODES AND LINDA PERHACS,
READIES SECOND SOLO ALBUM

Second solo album, Stop Talking, coming on Omnivore Recordings on May 19; features veteran musicians

  LOS ANGELES, Calif. —It’s been five years since Chris Price released his debut solo album, but there are a few reasons it’s taken this long for a follow-up — he’s been a bit busy. Even as he produced critically acclaimed comebacks from Linda Perhacs and Emitt Rhodes, opened for the Who with Tal Wilkenfeld’s band, and wrote songs with Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish, Beck), Price continued to write and record his own new music.

The result? Stop Talking, due out on Omnivore Recordings on May 19, 2017.

    Recorded from 2013 to 2016, Stop Talking contains 14 tracks produced, engineered, and arranged by Price, and features a wide variety of sounds and styles. Acoustic tracks (“Once Was True”) meet electric tracks like the title cut. Others are peppered with string arrangements (“Man Down”), Mellotron, and tape loops (“Algebra in the Sky”). Chris was joined in the studio by a variety of top musicians, including Kyle Fredrickson, Ben Lecourt, Fernando Perdomo, Joe Seiders, and many others.

According to Price, “I spent the five years since my first album Homesick working on albums for two heroes of mine, Emitt Rhodes and Linda Perhacs. But I never stopped writing and recording material of my own, and both of those incredibly inspiring and fulfilling projects ended up deeply informing my work, pushing me to think harder about my lyrics, become more adventurous in my production and never take the safe route musically. Nearly 50 songs were recorded for this project, and I went through an arduous and at times painful process whittling it all down to the form it is now in. I'm very proud of this work, which has been brewing for quite some time. But I should really stop talking and let the music speak for itself.”

Stop Talking is a perfect introduction to understanding why Chris Price is such an in-demand producer and musician. Stellar songwriting and playing all add up to one of the best listening experiences you will have in 2017. Once you hear it, you will not be able to stop talking about Stop Talking.
