Great New Releases Available Now!

NR 151116

It’s been a busy week in new releases here at Fred’s! Fresh in, fresher than the first snow, Spirit of Newfoundland leading lady released her debut “O Holy Night.” A Christmas Gem.
Also new and out now, David Picco “Start Again”, featuring local heavies Brad Power, Chris Donelly, and brother Chris Picco. A retro sounding singer-songwriter 10 song CD – think classic 70s and 80s rock – catchy and tight.
And, of course, the new CD from Lady Brett Ashley “Fault Lines”, which they launched in grand style with a killer in-store performance (you can see
the video in our feed below). Evocative keyboards, sumptuous bass, atmospheric percussion and vocals that pull you in, let you go, as haunting and compelling as a St. John’s autumn gust.

These releases – like all our local releases – are available in-store and online (

The Singing Network Symposium

Congratulations Andrea Rose and Ki Adams for a big weekend of singing and choral music. Their international symposium The Singing Network launched in St. John’s with two spectacular choral concerts featuring Lady Cove Women’s Choir, Newman Sound Men’s Choir, Canadian Chamber Choir, MUN Chamber Choir, Quintessential Vocal Ensemble and more.

The Canadian Chamber Choir presented a program of beautiful Canadian selections. The spotlight was also on Eriks Esenvalds, among the top young choral composers in the world, who was a keynote speaker and whose works were performed to hushed audiences. His CDs sold out immediately and will be back in stock at Fred’s asap!

A Cameo performance by the Ennis Sisters at the opening session gave the international guests a lovely introduction to their sweet harmonies from the Southern Shore.
