Rambling Dan Frechette

This second brand new Dan Frechette disc is a rowdy blues jammer with hot licks, piano and guitar (They Call Me Crazy), backporch twangers (Hell in a Handbasket) and cool cruisers (Good Time Charlie Blues). Internet County Jail is a quirky take on web culture heartache - and it’s pretty refreshing to hear a guy with a throwback voice and style singing about something current. Frechette’s voice works just as well with these blues as it does with the roots/punk of Deal With the Devil, so it’s hard to compare, or even believe, the same guy can be so diverse. Closer They Call Me Mr. Wrong is a solo strummer, with Frechette singing his heart out. You keep writing these tunes, Dan, and we’ll keep listening.
