Several months ago I was contacted by a mother-daughter team who spoke of big plans to start a music website where they featured local and upcoming artists in a fresh and independent new way. They called their website “Fresh Independence“. Having heard this story from young bloggers and try hards several times, I didn’t think much of it. Most often I find it’s as if most of these bloggers/critics/writers are either trying to get closer to their heroes ala Vampire Weekend and Dallas Green, or they’re merely looking for free tickets to shows. The writing is most often passionless and not engaging. Needless to say my hopes were low.
These ladies, however, have been coming through with some awesome work, high quality footage and well edited personal looks at lesser known artists. Let’s just say I was very happy to have been invited to do a couple sessions with Fresh Independence. Here is the holiday song I did with them and my friends from Four on the Floor. I give to you “What Child is This?”.
Here is also the interview/live song video session I did with them a few months ago.
