Today’s guest is the co-founder, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for the American folk rock band, The Lumineers. On January 22nd of 2021, our guest released his highly anticipated solo debut album, Piano Piano. Releasing through Dualtone Records in the U.S. and Canada and Mercury KX for the rest of the world, Piano Piano is a collection of gorgeous, intimate piano-centric instrumental songs that Fraites has been working on for the better part of a decade. The profoundly revealing and emotionally direct songs capture Fraites’ reflective moments from his Denver home. His songwriting reaches into deeply personal spaces with moving grace and stark elegance, retaining the folk-inspired melodicism so familiar from his work in The Lumineers, transported into a more classically sophisticated setting. In addition to piano, Fraites plays nearly every instrument on the album, including guitar, drums, synths, and programming. And The Writer Is… Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers!
