Album Notes
Ross Freedman began his songwriting career as a precocious eight-year-old with "The Martian Street," a blatant rip-off of the theme from "The Monkees." Nevertheless, piano lessons—and an indifferent attitude toward practice—soon followed. Influenced by the showtunes and standards his parents would listen to and sing around the house, 70s AM radio and the New Wave and College/Alternative LPs his sister played, Freedman's sound owes a debt to Joe Jackson, Neil Finn, Aimee Mann, Counting Crows and Ben Folds.

"I've always been drawn to dichotomy," says the Chicago-based singer/songwriter. "And this album, somewhat unintentionally, reflects that." Freedman has crafted a song cycle rich in lyrical detail, seamlessly shifting back and forth between a lush power pop aesthetic and expansive, spare openness. Give it a listen.
