If you aren't familiar with this concept compilation series that I have curated, let me explain what it is. As an 80's baby and a child of the 90s, I read the Goosebumps books as a kid, and, boy, did a lot of them scare me. In my years, I've also seen all of The Twilight Zone episodes, and continue to watch the series when it marathons during holidays. Similarly, they are really cool, innovative creations that tell tales involving themes of horror, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, comedy and beyond--they take your mind into strange and scary situations that are based on dream and reality.
Long before I started this series, I always thought it would be really cool to hear a batch of music that was solely inspired by the stories that Rod Serling and R.L. Stine brought to life. What started as an idea and turned into a reality that I made happen (with the help of the musicians that come on this journey with me in each release), I started with the first in 2012., and here we are with the THIRD part (or volume, or installment, or whatever you want to call it)!
With that said, each artist involved in this series were challenged with a creative assignment of writing/recording a brand new, CrayonBeats exclusive song that's inspired by a story from the Goosebumps books OR an episode from The Twilight Zone. Much like the prior two installments (go listen and download those, too!), each artist had creative freedom as to which direction they wanted to take it and how much inspiration they'd take from the stories.
This compilation brings together more instrumentals than vocal tracks (in comparison to the other two), so I hope you like what you hear! Spread the word. Share the music. Thank you for everything." -- Tiffology
