Album Notes
Derek Fawcett's solo debut, The Winter Clothes, draws musically both from his membership in celebrated Chicago acoustic pop quartet Down The Line, and a host of other influences including John Mayer, Tom Petty and Bon Iver. The first song and title track, "The Winter Clothes" follows the arc of a relationship from magical to malignant. We're soothed by Fawcett's sunny, warm baritone narration and the 'c'est la vie' take on things, but the relentless and foreboding acoustic guitar, ominous bass, and eerie percussion neutralize the positive spin: Things have clearly gone horribly, heartbreakingly wrong.

Having long wanted to make improving the social condition a part of his mission as an artist, Fawcett is also pairing each single song release with a different Chicago charity, in this case, The Gads Hill Center in Pilsen ( Each charity receives half of all download sale proceeds and half of ticket sales from the 'song release' shows. With these partnerships, he hopes to bring greater awareness to Chicago’s many important social needs, the organizations that try to serve them every day, and the unique ability that artists have to promote and foster positive change in their communities.

Also inspired by Chicago’s vibrant arts scene, Fawcett has chosen a work by a Chicago visual artist for each single-song's artwork: Unique collaborations that Fawcett hopes will bring Chicago’s musical and visual art scenes closer together. The artwork for "The Winter Clothes" is Mozart, a painting by Julie Sulzen.
