A larger-than-life frontman, songwriter, pianist, and producer, Mark Fredson has left his unique mark on multiple genres, touching everything from the outlaw country of Margo Price's breakout song "Hurtin' (On the Bottle)," which he co-wrote, to the theatrical, guilty-pleasure pop sounds that fill his own solo debut, Going to the Movies.
Largely created in Fredson's home studio in Nashville, Going to the Movies finds the songwriter updating the influences of another era — including the soft-rock smoothness of AM Gold radio and the taut, hook-heavy pop of the early 1980s — with a modern approach. He approaches the album with a mix of straight-faced sincerity and turned-up-to-11 showmanship, decorating his songs with synthesizers, electric guitar, and layers of multi-tracked harmonies. In addition to handling much of the album's instrumentation himself, Fredson also pulls double duty as Going to the Movies' engineer and producer. The result is a one-man pop/rock opera of sorts — a pristine blend of inspirations both past and present that he describes as his own version of "classic bedroom pop."
