Bethany is new to the Bad Apple Records family, but she’s been performing solo and as part of All Around the Dinner Table’s live band since Summer of 2016.
Stay tuned for updates concerning her debut LP, which will be produced by Brandon Miles from All Around the Dinner Table. For now, check out a live recording of “We Break Things” below this blog entry!
My mom says that I sang before I could walk, lying in my crib, humming away. Around the age of four I sang “Blessed Assurance” in front of my dad’s church in Liberia, West Africa, where I lived for seven years. My mother taught me to play guitar when I was fourteen and has sung with me my whole life, her tenor voice melding and warbling around my own and my sister’s. Her mother and father did the same with her, playing piano and banjo and singing at parties and church events. Continue reading Meet Bethany Pedigo

We all have that one friend who is too good at everything. Luckily, at the label, we have a lot of those friends. One in particular is Zack Messick. You may know Zack from Re-Education Camp (If you don’t know Re-Education camp, then you should). We are extremely excited to announce that Zack has a solo project that he has graciously decided to release through Bad Apple Records.
12 Parsecs to Home is the solo project of Zack Messick of Re-Education Camp. He enjoys just about every type of music there is, and most of it has had some sort of influence on his own sound. After writing and recording with REC, and performing with full band versions of All Around the Dinner Table and Sempervivi, he found himself with musical ideas that still weren’t being expressed.
Tales from Sol will be released on Halloween 2016, but it is available NOW for our supporters on Patreon!
Influenced by music ranging from classic/prog rock like Rush and Pink Floyd, the New Wave of the late seventies and early eighties, old school hip hop like Tribe Called Quest, modern pop, and coupled with a love for all things NASA and space-related themes, Zack Messick (bassist and composer for Re-Education Camp) created a unique sound for his debut full-length solo effort. Tales from Sol is an instrumental rock album delivering heavy doses synths, piano, and strong driving bass lines. It’s intended to tell the story of a weary traveler moving through the solar system, reflecting over past memories back on Earth. So, sit back and take yourself on a journey…
