There isn’t anything quite like Amazon Studios’ country club, tennis themed “Red Oaks.” Critics everywhere have praised the show’s authenticity, and Fervor Records is proud to once again be a go-to label for the vintage music on this totally 80s project. Perhaps indieWIRE said it best when describing Season 1, “throwing in ’80s hallmarks like outrageous side characters, apt musical numbers, sex, drugs and even a body-swap episode,” Premiering 11/11 on Amazon, “Red Oaks” will continue to take us back to a familiar place and time, introducing viewers to plenty of authentic period music throughout the season. Check out the Spotify playlist to get a sneak peak at a few of Fervor Records’ contributions to the “Red Oaks” Season 2 soundscape. Just hit play to transport back to a time when cell phones and electric cars were still science fiction and music was made the old fashioned way.

1. Having working in theatre, television, and now music – how do you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as someone who is passionate about performing and telling stories. There are so many different mediums through which to portray a story. Storytelling has been a passion of mine from a young age and one of my favorite things to do is to explore new ways to share my stories.
2. What is an artist?
I believe an artist is someone who is fearlessly baring their genuine self to share their talent with others. An artist is real. An artist is driven only by the love of their craft.
3. You’re known to play some songs by Patsy Cline live, and have cited other artists as influences on your music, but who are some musicians that have played a role in your development that might come as a surprise to your fans? What current artists have caught your ear?
I would say some artists that have influenced me that may be a surprise would be Elvis Presley or the Stray Cats. I love the rockabilly style and the whole country rock swing.
4. What was the first concert you attended, and who did you go with?
Well, the FIRST concert I actually attended was Hilary Duff in Las Vegas! I think I was 7 or 8 years old? I went with my mother and some friends. I do remember loving those lights!
5. “Nashville Stickup” is something of an introduction to your songwriting – what kind of statements were you hoping to make?
There are many statements behind “Nashville Stickup”. I think some are rather apparent and maybe others are a little more subtle. Because my roots are old country, Nashville Stick Up is about country music going back to its roots. Perhaps the most important one is simply “I’M HERE.” I wanted to kick off what I have been working on for most of my life with a big statement that lets everyone know who I am in a memorable format. I aim to say and do what very few are doing and I believe Nashville Stickup accomplishes just that.
6. Since recording “Nashville Stickup,” what have you been up to?
Writing!! I’ve co-written many more songs and recorded a few. I’m very excited about some of the new stuff as well. I also attended a songwriters retreat in Northern France. It was awesome to collaborate with songwriters from all over the world, a truly life changing experience!
7. If you could play your music anywhere in the world (not just venues or stages!) – where would it be?
I think a better question would be where wouldn’t I play? I love to travel and explore new cities, so I hope one day I get a chance to see the world and share my music.
Across both decades and continents, Fervor Records is proud to have unearthed a time capsule of pure London power pop from 1998. RED was the brainchild of John Kwiecinski, Julian Emery, and Tim Goodyer. They laid down these tracks after gigging extensively throughout London & neighboring cities. With tight playing & top-notch production, these 90s gems make for an exciting addition to the Fervor catalogue! Keep your ears open for RED – and in the meantime check them out on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and beyond!Read More
