Over the course of his career, and through numerous projects, Mark Fredson has garnered well-deserved attention, both for his fearless showmanship, as well as a knack for writing larger-than-life hooks. Fredson gained notoriety — in Nashville, and across the United States — for his time as the frontman of The Lonely H, and helped Margo Price craft her breakout song “Hurtin’ (On the Bottle).”
The sum of those experiences has culminated in Going to the Movies, Fredson’s new, 9-track volume of “classic bedroom pop” that, in the artist’s own words, is his most authentic work to date.
“Going to the Movies sounds very 2019, but it can also take you back to an earlier time,” Fredson said. “It bridges a solid gap between two worlds. I wanted to sound new while still mining the past, and this is my true self on the record. Regardless of the different iterations of music I’ve played in the past, there’s nothing in the world that’s more representative of me as a person than what you hear here.”
If that’s the case, then we love Mark Fredson here at UMC!
Go to The Movies!
