The main reason I love Indie music is because of the natural feel of the music. The raw emotional connection that feeds your soul when you hear certain artist. I’m not saying I don’t get those things with artist that are with big name companies but we know that with indie, we are going to get original lyrics and arrangements that were created by artists themselves. We know that with the majority of indie artist’s music can go from studio recording to acoustic live performance with easy transitions. I love that with each artist, regardless of geography, I get to experience the feel of their cultural sounds through their music but it’s truly a treat when an international artist’s music reminds me of my geography background as well as some of my favorite American artists.
The artist that gives me that type of feel is Fromm. She is a new artist who debuted her first full Cd, Arrival, in October 2013. Fromm’s soulful voice conveys the stories of her life and travels over an acoustic rock or pop-ish beat as if she is sharing pages from her personal journal.
Usually, I find indie artist by their older material but I happened on Fromm during my short weekend visit to my Yeobo’s best friend and wife’s house. They just relocated to the States from S. Korea. As if we were kindred spirits, they suggested a long list of indie artists for me but they played Fromme’s most recent mini LP, Under the Daylight Moon, that was released May 2014.
I love all 3 song but could only find 2 out of the three. Wish I could have found A Memory of Spring.
I also love most of her first full LP, Arrival, but these are my favorites.
