Dominique Fricot has never been very good at writing happy songs. The Salmon Arm born and raised solo artist believes that good music must come from a purely honest place within. “It's not to say that all my songs are depressing. I think my sad songs are as hopeful as my upbeat songs are sad. I believe that in life there are many profound shades and textures in our victories as well as our failures. To deny our music and art such intricacies would be a fallacy”.
The 6 foot 7 vocalist's constant musical search for the truth can be heard resonating from deep within his powerful baritone. Fricot's voice, which has drawn comparisons to Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, has been known to silence chattering bar crowds single handedly.
Fricot is currently working on his first solo studio release with producer Caleb Stull (Parlour Steps, Hinterland) and a handful of Vancouver’s finest musicians. The first two teaser tracks “Haven’t Seen Me Dance” and “Seashore” can be streamed at his website (dominiquefricot.com) and provide a wonderful idea of what is to come.
