Happy Spring! As per usual, I haven't posted for a bit, but am pleased to report that LongShot Deal has been accepted by Pandora and will soon join Nothing Hid in streaming on that site. It is also now available for purchase- or just to listen- thru various online sources, including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Soundcloud, etc. Here is a kind review from a local writer-
"Bob Frey's "Longshot Deal" presents a significant entry into the literature of American folk music. The deceptive ease with which the songs approach the difficulties of our times, personal and public, acts as a gift. The sound here, filled out by tasteful guitar, organ and violin, gracefully holds space for the vulnerability of the writing. Taken as whole, "Longshot Deal" is a perceptive documentation of engagement with adult life. The songs lead us into the emotional territory that much contemporary folk music doesn't risk—we come back wiser and more openhearted."
I am hoping all of the musicians who played on the record can join me at Honey on June 8th. We will play the entire record live and I will round out the evening with a solo set. Very excited, more to come! Take care, B
