Unglued Released August 2016
From a creative standpoint, Unglued is Argir's most ambitious album to date. The guitars are more aggressive, with a greater emphasis on acoustic melodies and different chord structures than his previous work. Argir plays slide guitar on this album, a first for him, and makes use of multi-tracked vocals as well. Argir admits to "throwing protocol out the door" with this album, focusing on what seemed fun to him during his creative process, and this send of "coming unglued" is what gave this album its name.

Two New Albums for 2016
And Then There's You Released October 2013
Anyone swirling in the seas of conditional connections, tough luck, and moves that put you in unfamiliar places will find a kindred cushion in Fred Argir’s latest single, And Then There’s You.

It captures a moment that, when all things fail, we find hope in our closest friends. When all things abandon us we find light in the eminence of something better.” Thinking back to the day he wrote and recorded what remains the only version of the song ever laid down, Argir recalls feeling “remarkably alone, like a very small person in a very large world.” Full Story

It takes faith, along with an instinctive ability to let unsettling story lines play out again and again, capture them raw, then set them to music. Full Story
