ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Winner of 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards

International Songwriting Contest winner

13 tracks, featuring Jaron Freeman-Fox & The Opposite of Everything, joined by some very special guests we’ve met through our musical misadventures: Kevin Breit, Christine Duncan, David Travers-Smith, Teresa Doyle, Rykka, Frank Evans, and Taylor Ashton

“Extraordanary album“- TORONTO STAR

“..like a fiddling Frank Zappa or Sun Ra and his Arkestra, changing pace and styles on a dime but always with consummate musicality” - PENGUIN EGGS

"This is a suite of tunes where great technique, virtuosic playing, and a sense of excitement and unexpectedness abound. There’s the idea that you don’t know where the tune will go next, and I love that feeling of surprise in music.” - 9 out of 10 – Shapenote Music

“Jaron Freeman-Fox calls his band the Opposite of Everything. With a name like that, you might expect his music to be pretty adventurous — which it most certainly is. His new album begins with a remixed sample from a horse auction that melds into Indian vocal percussion. Before the album is finished, you’ll hear growling that would make Tom Waits proud, a version of the Doors’ “People Are Strange” that makes Jim Morrison sound boring and even some throat singing. Freeman-Fox’s musical exploration has literally taken him all over the world and he finds inspiration everywhere he goes.”- Reuben Maan - CBC Music
