Ghosts of Another America

Highly recommended for fans of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd. A fine sense of ambience, space, and musicianship underlie insightful lyrics. FF's masterful guitar playing and melodic sense make this a truly memorable CD.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Great songs abound on this CD! A fine sense of ambience, space, and musicianship underlie humorous and insightful lyrics. Two highlights from the CD are "Montreal", and "Before You get Into My Car".

Fred is a gifted composer and multi-instrumentalist with a unique sound and melodic style. He has composed and performed music for Sesame Street, Wall Street Journal TV, PBS, Time Warner, Strange Universe, etc. He also composed the soundtrack for "Borders" with Steve Buscemi and the Emmy award winning documentary "Metaphoria". His song, "My Secret Life" from the "Frederick 4 - Themes From Imaginary Lands" CD, was featured on the NPR show "Echoes" by John Diliberto.

Artists he has collaborated with include Jeff Buckley, Deee-Lite, Susan McKeown, Gary Lucas, Pete Shelly (the Buzzcocks) and Ed Hamell of Hamell On Trail, on whose "Tough Love" (Righteous Babe records) CD he produced several tracks along with Ani DiFranco, John Leckie and others. Recently he cowrote and played on many tracks of "Fused" by Richard Khuzami, where he appears along side of many luminaries of World music.

Recently “Another Catskill Raga”, track 5 on this CD, was licensed by photographer Philip Lee Harvey, who put it to beautiful use here:

Fred's slide guitar and unique playing style have wowed and dazzled audiences for years, his voice and songwriting reminding many of a young Neil Young. Fred is also known as the guitarist for Neighbors + Allies, one of David Bowie's favorite NY bands in the 1980's. Fred wrote and performed a novelty song, "Ozark Melody" with Jeff Buckley and Joe Trip. You can find it here:

Karin Willison

Outstanding songwriter and musician
If you're longing for the days when music had something to say, when music was popular because it was good, then you must check out Funkyfreddy. His voice has been compared to that of Neil Young, and he's every bit as good of a songwriter. The melodies are catchy, yet complex, the lyrics heartfelt and moving. All the songs are wonderful, but preview "Montreal", "Back Doors of My Mind", and "Where Are They Now" for an introduction. Highly recommended.
