Charlie Peacock on Richie

It didn’t make sense to feature all the amazing players that make up my production crew and not feature Richie too. We began working together in 1998 on the Switchfoot album New Way To Be Human and what a great ride it’s been. One of Richie’s best qualities is that he loves to work and goes wherever the music is good. When he’s not booked with me or other producers he is always working on some exciting new independent artist – tracking, overdubbing or mixing. It never ceases to surprise me when he’ll say something like, “Oh yeah, great film, did you like the title track? I mixed that.” A man of quiet surprises! I hope you get to work with him soon, whether remotely, or via tracking, overdubs, or mixing here in Nashville.
