Listen to Price perform “Homesick” in the What’s Trending Studios!
Chris Price doesn’t need any fancy recording equipment to record an album. He has all he needs right in the palm of his hand, recording his entire debut solo album “Homesick” with the help of his iPhone.
“Originally I wanted to make a record like they did in the sixties, like they did with four tracks, and this was cheaper than buying a tape machine and renting out a room,” he told Shira.
After his BlackBerry was stolen in Hollywood, it ended up being one of the best things that ever happened to him, he said. He had to buy an iPhone.
“I picked up the phone, filmed myself playing acoustic videos, put them up on YouTube and I was really shocked at how good it sounded,” he said. “So I thought if it sounds this good just filming myself, if I find a recording app, I can make a record on this phone.”
