Daniel, Fred & Julie

Daniel, Fred & Julie

(You've Changed; US: 5 Jan 2010; UK: 1 Dec 2009)

Daniel, Fred & Julie is folk music at its finest. Born out of friendship and supported by the emotions that encompass the human condition, this collection of folk songs from the public domain and stirring original compositions is powerful in its simplicity. Daniel Romano, Fred Squires, and Julie Doiron, accomplished musicians in their own right, gathered in Sackville, New Brunswick in the summer of 2009. After a tape machine was set up in Squires’ garage, the three musicians recorded ten delicate and sombre tracks. Using precious finger-picking as a bountiful currency, Daniel, Fred & Julie manage to breathe new life into songs heard a thousand times previously. With stirring three-part harmonies, the record tells the tales of the disenfranchised and underachievers alike, which is ironic, considering what a beautiful achievement Daniel, Fred & Julie truly is.
