Dan Frechette & Laurel Thomsen with Tracy Parker and Jimmy Norris: Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by a rare musical chemistry, Dan Frechette, guitar/vocals, and Laurel Thomsen, violin/vocals, both powerful and magnetic talents in their own rights, prove that musical magic is alive and well. In a relatively short time frame, the Alt-folk duo has circumnavigated North America, logging over 25,000 miles, 130 concerts, and releasing their debut CD. With influences ranging from Folk, Classical, Old Time, and Celtic, to Gospel, Jazz, Vintage Country, Rock N' Roll, Blues, and Bluegrass, Dan and Laurel flow seamlessly through genres, tempos, stories, and moods with virtuosic command.
Amy Obenski: With a stark and honest intensity, Amy Obenski's rich, crystalline voice cuts through the noise of every day life. She's a California native. Raised in San Diego and now based in San Francisco, the sound of the far west is unmistakably infused into her words and sound. She's toured the West Coast for ten years and even got her song “Carousel” into the Hollywood scene when it was placed on the TV Show, Grey's Anatomy.
