Today I want to introduce you to my friend, Fawn Fritzen.
What Fawn IS and what Fawn HAS are very much the same…a treasure!
I mean to say that she has treasures in her family, she is my treasured friend, and she, herself, is also a treasure.
Fawn is also a musician. She sings Jazz & Blues in English, French, German and Chinese.
…and here’s a bonus for you! I’ll show you how you can get a FREE .mp3 of one of her recorded songs at the end of this post!
And I am so happy and proud of my friend!
I just found out that she has been nominated for a Julian Award! The award is offered by the Jazz Spectrum, a weekly show on CJSF 90.1 FM at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C.

I could listen to Fawn sing all day long and never tire.
…Which is a good thing, because I stayed with Fawn and her family for 5 weeks before moving. It’s really cool, living with a musician. Some mornings I would wake up to Fawn playing the piano.
She’d play a beautiful etude or two while waiting for the girls to get dressed and come upstairs for breakfast.
Sometimes she’d sing softly, under her breath. Like she didn’t want to wake anybody up.
After a little bit, the girls would come clattering up the stairs and a new kind of music would begin. The getting-ready-for-school kind of music. Once everybody is out the door, Fawn’s job as a working musician begins.
In the summer you can find her singing and acting in the Frantic Follies Vaudeville Review Show where she is the leading lady.
…or singing at Arts in the Park. She is busy busy busy! And last year she released her first CD!
From her website: Thanks Fawn Fritzen for your debut album, ‘Bedroom Voice’, the best CD I own. Your voice enlightens the whole world and unlocks our hidden feelings. Another additional treat is the insightful and beautifully written liner. For those that appreciate crossed jazz music with folk, rock, country and even blues, you would appreciate this CD.
— Bruce Wallace
And on a side note, one really cool thing about having a friend who is releasing her first CD is that you get your opinion asked about things like the album title and the cover art. Just sayin’…I loved that! I loved getting that peek into the process.
Visit Fawn’s website, sign up for her newsletter, and receive a FREE digital copy of her rendition of “It Might As Well Be Spring”! This is an exclusive download, since the song is not on the album!
Ya gotta hear this lady sing. Really, I’m not kidding.

And Bedroom Voice would make a really great gift for someone special (Fawn will autograph and ship it for you) …just sayin’ 🙂
