Greg Ritchie, a resident of Macungie and a senior at Emmaus High School, launched his original EP, 17 Frames Per Second at a live performance at Wescosville Community Center, Memorial Park, in Allentown, PA. The premiere was held on Nov. 25 to a crowd of approximately 200 friends, classmates, swimmers, family, and fans.
Ritchie spent over seven months writing, recording, and producing his debut EP, 17 Frames Per Second, which he performed guitar, bass, and provided all vocals. The record was recorded in his home studio, where he also works with clients to help produce their music and discover new sounds.
The senior launched his CD on Facebook; his music is now available on iTunes. The debut EP includes seven songs, "The Psychosis Is Setting In," "In the Moment," "Souvenir," "Carnation," "We Need Rain," "Ghosts," and "Reassurance." Ritchie plans to major in music in college; he is also an accomplished varsity swimmer at EHS and the Emmaus Aquatic Club.
