Simone Felice – Strangers

  • May 23, 2014

Singer-songwriter Simone Felice is best known in musical circles as a founding member of the folk rock band The Felice Brothers. Since his departure from the band in 2009, he has recorded with the country soul ensemble The Duke & The King and on solo material as well. In addition to Simone’s musical endeavors, he released two critically acclaimed novellas, and it is this literary sensibility and his knack for writing intimate personal narratives that make Strangers such a rich and captivating listen. Standouts include: the contemplative tune on fatherhood, “Bye Bye Palenville”; the commentary on American gun culture in “Our Lady of the Gun”; the mid-tempo rocker “Molly O”; and the meditation on death, “The Gallows.” Fans of Felice’s work are sure to enjoy Strangers, and newcomers will be exposed to this true talent. – Written by JFelton
