Canadian singer-songwriter Dan Frechette and I just released our first single and music video from our fifth duo album "After the Fire," which we'll be releasing in its entirely January 21, 2022 (pre-order here). It's a song called "Make Me Come Alive" which Dan wrote and I created the violin parts for.

Here's a host of places to listen to and download the track https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/danfrechetteandlaurelthomsen/make-me-come-alive

And here's the music video which I produced, filmed, and edited:

I enjoyed capturing familiar scenes from all around the Monterey Bay and developing a storyline to fit the transformation that happens to Dan's character. He was a good sport to go along with it all! We hope you enjoy.

Finally, we also put together a Violin Geek Podcast episode to share the story behind the song and the album in general. Listen here or wherever you get your podcasts.
