I love writing songs. Im not the greatest writer ever, but I’m getting better and truly proud of the recent songs that we’ll be releasing this year. I’ve written most of my songs with my best friend Nick Abraham. Here we are trying to figure out a bridge to a new song we just finished up that was cowritten with Eric Donnelly. This could be boring to watch all 7 minutes, but maybe some songwriters and fans would like to see the process a bit. More to come 😄
This past fall I joined a group of talented singer/songwriters for 5 days to put together an album benefiting brain cancer research through Rock By The Sea and Accelerate Brain Cancer Care (ABC2.) We were supposed to be writing and recording in a few beautiful homes on the beach in Destin, FL, but were immediately evacuated due to Hurricane Michael. We all hopped in a few cars squished between a ton of equipment, and drove through the night to a lake house in Alabama. The next few days we wrote 12 songs and recorded them all with a drum set in a kitchen and vocals in a little bedroom. The songs were written and recorded in real time, and mixed and mastered within a week. The 12 song album is now available titled “Write By The Sea, Vol. 1.” I sang and recorded on 3 of the 12, but I feel a connection to all of them. You can listen to the album on any streaming platform, but purchasing a physical copy will certainly help the foundation the most. You can do that if you click on this link as well as a ton of other offers from Rock By the Sea. https://rockbythesea.bandcamp.com/album/write-by-the-sea-volume-one Here is a quick clip of one of the songs off the record “All Your Might.”
Cover of Halsey's single "Without Me" with a little Justin Timberlake thrown in there. Check it out! **There's an F bomb in this song so don't listen if you don't like that** Recorded at Dexters Lab Recording and filmed by Ryan Zipp Photography & Video Production. More acoustic vids to come next week!
During my senior year of college my Dad brought me to see David Gray in concert. We both had become obsessed with his album "Life in Slow Motion" and his live peformance had me hooked. His voice and songs were haunting, and I just knew I wanted to become a better musician after seeing him. "This Year's Love" is one of his greatest songs, and since practicing my piano playing was one of my New Year's resolutions, I thought this would be a perfect cover to share. This was shot and recorded at @Dexters Lab Recording by Ryan Zipp Photography & Video Production.

Thank you to everyone who made it out to a show of our first ever Father and Son Christmas Tour! We had no idea how it would go, but it certainly exceeded both of our expectations. Ending it in CT at the beautiful Infinity Hall was perfect, and the crowd was one of my favorite crowds ever! We might have to make this a tradition! Lastly, I want to thank my Dad for making the last few weeks an experience I’ll always remember.
Grab a pop socket for your phone or a signed “Where We Left Off” EP for a last minute stocking stuffer! https://nickfradiani.bigcartel.com/

Just saw A Star Is Born and was totally blown away. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were amazing, and the original music played throughout the film was so good. I really got hooked to the song “Maybe It’s Time.” Afterwards I learned that it was written by one of the best songwriters of my time Jason Isbell. Anyways, I was messing around today rehearsing and gave it a shot. Enjoy!
