Album Notes
CHICAGO (March 12, 2019) - Jonas Friddle announces his upcoming album, “The Last Place to Go,” due out April 12. After two studio albums with indie folk supergroup “The Majority,” this new release marks a move to a more intimate sound and a focus on storytelling. The Americana sounds of Fiddle, Dobro, Telecaster, Bass and Drums support carefully crafted lyrics designed to draw listeners into the story’s world. “Drinking in a Dry Town,” the first single from the album, is available as an approved downloadable mp3.

The album comes across like a collection of short films, full of characters and imagery connected in an exploration of how people’s past affects their present. The first single “Drinking in a Dry Town” is stark look at a young person’s struggle coming out to his friend in an unaccepting community. The delicate arrangement and tight harmonies bring home the strong rebuke of a culture that will judge and shame, rather than nurture, it’s youth.

The album spans the Americana sound from Levon Helms’ style groove on “Samson Was A Lover” to tight harmony singing in the style of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings on “Dirty South.” And while the album is reflective in nature, Friddle’s lyrics strike a John Prine-esque balance between sincerity and humor with songs like “The Last Place to Go” and “Cuba Outta JFK.”

The studio production of the songs brings home the organic feel of the record as a whole. Recorded live and straight to tape, the talent of the band that surrounds Friddle is clear. Whether it’s backing a mini-epic like “Long Long Line” or delivering Honky Tonk licks in “Cookie Jar,” these musicians bring the right touch to each song. Members include Jason Toth and Gerald Dowd on Drums, Anna Jacobson on Fiddle/Vocals/Trumpet, Andrew Wilkins on Bass, Steve Doyle on Dobro/Electric Guitar, Evan Jacobson on Keys/Drums/Trombone, and Carl Kennedy on Keys.
