Do you remember two years ago, when I introduced you to my singer/songwriter friend Fawn Fritzen? Go to this post if you missed it. At that time, she was just getting ready to release her first album, Bedroom Voice.
She’s done some really fun things along the way, including making a very sweet music video that I adore. Obviously I love it because I adore her voice, but also because I’m in it! If you watch it, you’ll see Mr. C and I dancing on the banks of the Yukon River mid-way through. Mr. C has only danced in public with me on two occasions, and this was one of them. Here it is:
Well, time goes on and I’m very excited to let you know that Fawn is getting ready to release her second album, Pairings!
Right now Fawn is raising money to help her get the CD released. She’ll tell you all about it herself:
The album features some of the best Canadian jazz musicians today, including George Koller on bass, Reg Schwager on guitar, Karl Schwonik on drums, David Restivo on piano, Kelly Jefferson on tenor sax, and more…
It only takes 10 seconds…please vote and help Fawn win this award!
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.
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.
