Community Music's crash (versatile vocalist Christopher Richard) is happy to announce that his first solo album Hardly Criminal will be released on May 6.
Hardly Criminal is an eclectic amalgam of all the music that has come into crash's path since his childhood in Louisiana. The diverse musical landscape influenced crash heavily, yielding songs evoking 60's soul, intimate folk and old time country. Produced and engineered by the multitalented Ed Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros lead guitarist, Mark Noseworthy, (and featuring friends from the Zeros, Dawes, Bright Eyes and more...).

The album's first single "Motion Animal," will be recognizable to fans of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros where crash has served as a backing vocalist over the last two years (before joining Edward Sharpe, crash was the lead singer for the LA's The Deadly Syndrome, who released three albums). In concert lead singer Alex Ebert turns the microphone over to crash for that one song and it has become a high moment of the set. The Orange County Register wrote in a show review that it was "one of the night's biggest highlights: the old-school jumper "Motion Animal," an unreleased track showcasing percussionist crash [Richard] on lead vocals, blasting a killer tenor that would make any Stax soul man jealous."
The out of this world video for "Motion Animal" was directed by Nicole McDonald & Grant James. crash talking about the video says, "what began as a concept describing a dream ended up taking a whole other turn creating a life of it's own. everything you see was shot on location in a single day. in addition, the last three minutes of audio were also recorded live on location that day. David Mcfarland was our cinematographer. Our friends joined as audience members, dancers, animals, and such. We began in the AM with the live performance portion and worked backwards ending the day on the dancing bit you see at the top of the video. by then i was thrilled and exhausted all at once, but yes, thankfully I still managed to muster up some of my own shakes and jiggles. x"
