|Rockwood Music Hall|
We’re so looking forward to play our first show in New York next weekend! 💚
At Rockwood Music Hall, we’re going to present the music of our new album “Nature’s Songs”.
Entrance is free, our set begins at 7pm.
“This beautiful record showcases refreshingly original songs rooted in meaningful depictions of Frederike’s deep connection to nature. The chemistry of the members of FRÉ is palpable, and as connected as the songs themselves.” – Becca Stevens
“Nature’s Songs is a heartfelt collection of original music. Its message combines the personal with the universal, asking for reflection and appreciation. A true group effort; carefully crafted with attention to detail and played with urgency.” – Ben van Gelder
FRÉ plays contemporary art songs whose lyrics carry uplifting, critical yet hopeful messages about the world we are living in. In Frederike’s songs that are influenced by a whole bunch of diverse artists, ranging from Becca Stevens to Joni Mitchell and Björk, each musician is free to speak with his own individual musical voice. This leads to a dynamic, intimate yet also danceable band sound with adventurous improvisations and playful arrangements.
Their new concept album „Nature’s Songs“ was released on 21st July on Fattoria Musica Records. With the music of this record, FRÉ hopes to show the listener how fundamentally fascinating and amazing different aspects of nature are, how they work together, how they keep each other alive, and what we can learn from them.
