ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine Warren Zevon super imposed on a new millennium Bobby Darrin, talk about revolutionary retro! Steven Fedrick pays homage to 40's swing with his playful "Who Knew" and lusty "Nobody Knew". Yet, the album isn't just a big band fest. Fedrick mixes it up. "Welcome Home" has theauthentict feel of early '70's singer-songwriters. Quiet Night/Jenny Song uses full orchestral arrangements reminiscent of lush Richard Perry-esque pop. And he doesn't stop there. Fedrick takes broad stylistic jumps taking different musical genres and make them his own. Do you like songs intimate and raw? Listen to "Train Wreck". For inspiration, hear his anthemic "Hold On To Love" and imagine. Fedrick embraces spirituality and celebrates the eternal with his eulogy "Forever Heart". Yet, he makes compelling observations on religious fundamentalism with "Billy Sunday" He even goes Nashville. But don't expect to cry in your beer. Fedrick's "Without Expectations" conveys the sad arc of a love affair without a hint of sentimentality.

"Fedrick, not Fred" is a sometimes quirky but always honest and powerful album of amazing beauty.

Everyone is asking about this surprising new mutli-talented indie artist. Songwriter Steven Fedrick (not Fred, ha) lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. He's been composing many years but had maintained a low profile until a sudden life changing event prompted him to loose his music into the world.
Who are his influences? "Menken & Ashman are my idols”, states Fedrick. “Ashman’s perspicacious lyrics perfectly realized in Menken’s mellifluous melodies of every genre. How can one not be inspired by songs like "Mean Green Mother from Outer Space", "Kiss the Girl", or "Gaston". Besides creating music, his passions include crappie fishing and the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.

"Who Knew"??? I don't know where I've been? We knew you were talented but had no idea how much. I think I told you Garry used to sing with the front group for the "Oakridge Boys". He also won a Music Scholarship for playing his trombone. Our relationship began with a mutual love of music and continues. We were absolutely "blown away" with your first CD. We sat together with our speakers cranked up and thoroughly enjoyed every song. We especially liked the swing-big band sound of "Who Knew" and "Nobody Knew" and you have a fantastic horn section behind you. Every single song was a delight and we couldn't wait to hear the next song. "Without Expectations" is a classic love song. You go, Steven! The spirit of your music brings people together during times of struggle and need. Your music lifted our Spirits, filled us with hope and reminded us the power of music. Thank you so much for sharing your gift!

What a delight!! Very diverse tracks, really shows the depth of Mr. Fedrick's talent. "Hold on to Love" is a true Anthem, while "Chammoran Waltz" carries you away. No dry eyes with "Forever Heart" either. Can't wait to see what's next from this new Texas jewel!!

All I can say is WOW Steven! I am blown away! I have heard you play and sing many of these songs over the years, and have always known that you are the most talented person I know… but this is beyond anything I ever… you exceeded my expectations! You are so gifted Steven, I am thrilled you kept at it all these years and have finally put out this amazing CD! Your arrangements and compositions are marvelous. I’ve lost count on how many times I've already listened to it, I can’t seem to get enough of it. In fact I’m listening to it right now, “Hold On to Love” is playing, one of my favorites. It grabs my heart and just hangs on… reminding me how it was. “Nobody Knew” is great, I love what you did with it! Then there’s “Ever in my Heart”, for reasons you and few others know, is near and dear to my heart… the first time I heard this song I was astounded, but what you’ve done with it here is… beyond any words I can find. The entire CD is jamb packed with great music… thank you Steven for sharing your beautiful talent, and for honoring me with a copy.
