Behind the scenes in our "studio"

We've been busy recording our new album, The Breakdown. On a very hot day in July the band set-up a full studio in an empty room and recorded 10 tracks. Setting up all the equipment (mics, cables, partitions, drums, computers, etc..) took almost as long as the recording of our music! We put down some great sounding tracks and we know you'll love what you hear when the album drops in October.

The petting zoo turns into a radio interview.

Playing music on the street in New York City is a lot like being an animal in some sort of messed up petting zoo. Don't get me wrong we subject ourselves to it, but it is a very strange experience. Some people love you, some hate you, some come up and just touch you...really, no shit, dude just rubbed my shoulder and walked away! I like to think that maybe that's his way of saying he really liked our music.

While it is always strange, some really great things can come out of it. For example last week DiMaggio and I had finished playing The War of Art when this cat walked up with a little voice recorder. He proceeded to interview us about C Phineas, our influences and of course politics. Turns out he recorded us for his radio show on WFMU called "The Dusty Show with Clay Pigeon." Listen to our social commentary, live performance and a clip of Memory Lane on WFMU.

Well it was a dope day in the park and we'd like to thank Clay Pigeon for putting C Phineas on. Who knows maybe next time we hang in the park Anderson Cooper will walk by.

Catch you soon - Chris

C Phineas brings you - What It Is

When C Phineas started we had one goal in mind, to take authentic aspects of our favorite music and create a new sound. We're proud to say that one year later, the band is recording and performing original music that is creative, fun and true to it's influences. While the music is always the main focus, another goal of ours was to tell the story of what a band goes through to make their mark here in "The Big Apple." After a year of gigs, recordings, victories and failures, we have an incredible story to tell. This blog is your window into our life as a New York City soul band. Stop back often for the latest videos, pictures and happenings.

C Phineas is for the people.

Peace -
C Phin
