Concert to End Homelessness April 29th, 2017

Fred will be performing at HONOR's Concert to End Homelessness on April 29, 2017 at the Elks Lodge in Greenwood Lake, NY.  In addition to Fred, the all-day concert will feature Sammy Cannillo, Wood Hippie, Jeremy Torres, and Don Lowe.

HONOR (Helping Others Needing Our Resources) is an Orange County, NY-based outreach organization that provides meals, housing, and other services for people combating chemical dependency, in need of temporary/transitional housing, or requiring crisis intervention.

Lending his talents to events like these means a lot to Fred, whose Midwestern upbringing fostered  a community spirit that exists in him to this day.  He was delighted when HONOR reached out to him, and fully supports their dedication to helping homeless and at-risk residents of Orange County.

Unglued Released August 2016

Fred Argir's new album, Unglued, is a must-own for fans of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Mike Ness' solo work. Over 14 tracks, Argir combines alt-rock guitar hooks with mature songwriting and vocals that are clean and sharp without sacrificing any of Argir's trademark grit. In fact, "clean and sharp" are descriptors that apply to this album as a whole; one of the many triumphs of Unglued is its clarity, both musically and sonically.

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.

And Then There's You Released October 2013

“And Then There’s You” is perfect in its authentic imperfection
 
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. If you have ever felt alone, you will recognize the internal struggle between isolation and undying spirit. “This song,” begins Fred, “is the outcome of a long-lasting emotion, a forthcoming declaration of love resulting from a long list of bad luck. 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

Worlds of Secret Lives Released December 2012

Worlds of Secret Lives reveals Fred Argir the artist and receptive soul

Worlds of Secret Lives, the latest album in Fred Argir's blossoming body of work, is an example of what can come of it when a talented and experienced artist allows intense visions to assume control of the creative process. 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
