Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen
"Best songwriters I've heard in a long time."
- Sing Out
MagazineMeeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by a once-in-a-lifetime musical chemistry and friendship, upcoming Canadian-American duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are ...prodigious players with songwriting that sets them apart" (Penguin's Eggs, Fall 2016). Seamlessly combining emotive, soaring violin, diverse guitar styles, compelling storytelling, a dash of harmonica and humor, and unique vocal chemistry, Dan and Laurel present a polished, engaging performance. Instantly memorable and magnetically appealing, months after playing the little towns the duo enjoys discovering, residents are still talking about what a great night everyone had.
Based in Northern California, Dan and Laurels third album, Between the Rain, was top ten on Canadas campus radio Roots charts for 2016. They have toured North America extensively since teaming up in early 2013, playing everything from Home Routes house concert tours of the Canadian Prairies, to headlining spots at the Listening Room Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida, the definitive Winnipeg Folk Festival, and opening up for The Wailin Jennys at a sold out theater in Grass Valley, California. In 2017 they made their European debut, including concerts in Ireland, Denmark, the UK, France, and Germany. In 2018 they will be recording and releasing their fourth album.
