Add Dominique Fricot’s name to a small but growing list of local artists who have yet to find the recognition they deserve: his solo songs can’t be found on iTunes yet and the closest you’ll come to a download is by signing up for his mailing list and checking his Youtube page.
Fricot writes largely of the banal, trite, existence that is life, channeled through a voice reminiscent of Chris Martin and the musical sensibilities of Damien Rice. His, are lyrics without pretention, wrought with honesty and ache. The title track of his forthcoming album, tentatively called “If Baby Could Walk,” is an emotionally arresting edict of the tribulations of fatherhood and of manhood, wrapped in the form of a letter to a young son or daughter.
In person Fricot is outgoing, droll, and charismatic—in short, a star. He has the ability to silence a room and draw everyone’s attention with his singing, compelling stories and even his witty jokes. Fricot will be playing at the Streaming Cafe in Kelowna on December 3rd. You can either make the trip to see him live in person or watch him live online at http://streamingcafe.net/. The show starts at 7 pm PST.
