How to Say Sorry and Other Lessons is an extraordinary album that describes Fawn’s path to self-actualization. A collection of material this raw can feel perilous to share, and yet, in her own words — “these songs deserve a life of their own.”
Co-written with pianist/composer/life-partner David Restivo, the music encompasses swing, funk, pop, gospel, and even a touch of reggae. It is just as varied in its sentiment and depth. From the poignancy of unforeseen heartbreak (Bittersweet Goodbye) to a battle cry for female emancipation (Make a Little Noise), the result is a beautiful extended metaphor for rebuilding a life after loss. Fritzen aims to create not just a body of music, but also an event that honestly examines emotions and inspires conversation.
The stories build in intensity as she progresses, culminating at her lowest point, where she felt the deepest self-loathing, and climaxing at her most empowered.
This event will combine live performance with footage from the original 2019 show that was recorded to become this album — a fun twist on today’s reality of online concerts!
