For Vancouver’s Dominique Fricot music has always been a form of therapy, a way to explore and share the traumas of real life.
A singer-songwriter, far removed from the clichéd tropes that are so closely associated with the term. Fricot’s music brings to mind the widescreen, melodic pop of Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins, and fuses it with the influence of more modern songwriters from Bon Iver to Sufjan Stevens. It’s in the live setting, whether as a solo artist of part of side-project The Folk Road Show, that his talents truly come alive; emotional, funny, and with the spirit of a story-teller and the vision of an artist – a songwriter with the world at his feet, and the desire to explore every inch of it, and one who makes you feel like you’re walking every step with him.
Recently relocating his solo project to Berlin, Germany, he is slated to release a series of singles in 2020. The first of which titled "Curse of Too Many Options will be available on March 20th.
