Beyond the Earbuds | Annual Breakfast

FRCH Annual Breakfast 2017, Record Jacket

Each year, on the last Tuesday of January, FRCH hosts our Annual Breakfast. Our version of the State of the Union address, we take the opportunity to recap our successes of the past year and share our focus for the coming year. The format consists of quick presentations from each studio and discipline, highlighting key projects and goals accomplished. Several years ago we implemented music into the program … but not just background music … the ability for each speaker to select their personalized ‘walk-up’ music. Since then, the song selections have become a key tradition, with speakers agonizing over the perfect pick. This year, after many internal requests, we wanted to share our 2017 Annual Breakfast playlist with you! Read more of this post

OVER THE RADAR: An Interview With Lauren Denitzio

Prior to becoming more acquainted with Lauren over the past few years, I had only known her through her instantly recognizable record jackets that I would come across while on tour. I also knew her through the band she fronted for nearly 7 years, The Measure [sa]. At every record store and at every dingy-basement-show-distro-box I would undoubtedly find myself freezing on a record that carried the modus operandi of one Lauren Denitzio.

In recent years we’ve bumped into each other at a music festival or at a show in New York, and we would end up striking up a conversation about anything and everything…except art. So I got in touch with Lauren recently to finally have the art conversation. Well, a conversation about HER art, which I am a huge fan of.
