Fri May 13, 2022

Under the soaring redwood forest canopies of Bonny Doon, California, folk-roots artists Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen tell the tale of dark money interests within the hopeful and positive community call-to-action that is their new single, “Money Shouldn’t Talk That Strong” – check it out on YouTube here:

Complete with an accompanying video, the new song accompanies a list of harmonic pleasures on the duo’s recent studio album, After The Fire. Drawing on their collective experience traveling the American landscape and witnessing the devastating effects of poverty and addiction, the verses about nonspecific problems set the stage for the shift, “in the vibe of the song, of course — but hopefully also in policy, focus, and more,” they share.

With love being a fire capable of breathing life into even the coldest and most dismal of circumstances, Canadian-American roots-folk duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen channel its vitality in their new single, “Make Me Come Alive”.

Serving as preview to this January 2022’s forthcoming new album, After the Fire, “Make Me Come Alive” begins abruptly with a storm — a gorgeous, noisy crashing together of violin and guitar — before organizing into an easy, rockin’ groove. Pinawa, Manitoba-born Dan sings the lead, and we learn about this exciting woman who’s caught his fancy, while Monterey, California-born Laurel punctuates the song with shimmering vocal harmonies and deft, elegant violin.

I've got my hands on my destiny
She's the one who heats my every chill
I've got a feeling deep inside me
She's always bound to be my thrill
