ABOUT

Peter McCulloch is a 30 year seasoned veteran of the music industry who has utilized his unique talents in a wide variety of endeavors. As principal singer/songwriter of his own original, "Alterna-Pop-N-Roll" outfit, This Island Earth, to fronting various cover/wedding bands, his boundless energy and "chameleonic" vocalizations have always delivered an unforgettable performance. When not singing or warbling through his original songs or covers, Peter’s vocal talents have also served him well performing dozens of jingles, voice-overs, and voice characterizations for film, TV, and radio, most recently for The Cartoon Network's, "The Venture Bros." series and WLIR 92.7FM. He has worked with the cover bands Wolfgang Jack, Lost in Place, and Naughty Humphrey. As a staunch defender of the rights and needs of left-handed musicians, Peter also co-launched the website, .leftybassist in 2008, which has since become THE definitive resource of information for lefty bass players.

"This is one Merry-Go-Round you'll want to keep spinning" - Kevin Amorim/New York Newsday

For the recording of This Island Earth's last release, "Welcome to the Merry-Go-Round," the band enlisted the talents of platinum pop producer, Armand John Petri, whose credits have included the Goo Goo Dolls, 10,000 Maniacs, and Sixpence None the Richer. The first song on the CD, "All for Love," initially appeared in demo form on CMJ's Certain Damage Music Sampler Vol. 109, and that got the ball rolling. "'All for Love' caught my ear immediately. It was incredible!" says Mr. Petri. "Most of the material on their tape sounded quite mature, and they had a knack for hooks. You must believe in an artist or a band from the heart, and I certainly believe in This Island Earth." (Mar. 2000, Vol. 4, Inside Connection).

Indeed, Armand's pop sensibilities were a perfect match for the band, contributing to their most consistent, focused release to date. The band recorded in Long Island at Sabella Sound Studios in Long Island and mixed at Tarbox in Buffalo, home to eclectic rock legends, The Flaming Lips.

The growth of This Island Earth, both musically and professionally, has been a logical escalation. Formed from the ashes of former cover bands and mullet-headed metal outfits, the group joined forces through a well placed ad in the Village Voice, taking their moniker from a popular sci-fi 50's film of the same name. The band's eponymous debut was released on Neuro-Feed Records label and was sold and distributed primarily through consignment and live performances. Although it was only promoted to 12 east coast regions, the CD managed to gain 15 Top 40 college radio positions on over 180 stations, selling out it's initial pressing. Their follow up EP release, "Home Sweet Home," brought even further attention to the band, once again selling out its first pressing. The CD achieved over 50 Top 40 chart positions on over 350 stations nationwide and yielded a Top 20 ADD spot in its first week of release. The single, "Edge of Tomorrow," appeared on CMJ Certain Damage Sampler Vol. 103, as well as in the independent film, "Putnam," and also made many Top 10 radio lists for Top Songs of the Year 2000 (WCWP, WUSB). The band has also received extensive press coverage in Newsday, Billboard, and The Voice, and has opened for veteran acts 10,000 Maniacs and The English Beat.

The industry has begun to tap into Long Island's hotbed of original talent, and This Island Earth has been cited as a significant promising band helping to pave the way for the next musical explosion.

T.I.E. (as the group is both affectionately and lazily referred to) have released 3 CDs, which can be found at iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon. ..

Consisting of four of New Jersey’s top musicians, ?????????????????????????????????????????NAUGHTY HUMPHREY has strived to separate from the pack right out of the gate. We play popular covers from the ’60s thru today, but we resurrect those lost classics that have been overlooked and forgotten. And you’ll be glad we did. With literally THOUSANDS of classic songs to choose from over music’s illustrious history, why settle on the same tired songs over and over again? You’re too smart and brilliant for that.
