Fort Frances-A Billion Drums

Somehow it’s been over two years since I last wrote about Fort Frances. They’ve put out a few singles since then, and they’re only a few days away from their new record, Look What Tomorrow Brought Us, hitting the digital platforms. It’s been a long road for singer/songwriter David McMillin, and you can hear the maturing and changing perspective in the recent songs, but especially … Continue reading Fort Frances-A Billion Drums

Fort Frances at Schubas 9/23/2015

Pretty much every show has given a preview of at least one new song that hasn’t been released. They also do a great job of rearranging their material, so … Continue reading Fort Frances @ Schubas, 5/5/2013

Fort Frances-Harbour

I’ve been pretty forthright about my personal relationship with Fort Frances’ lead singer/songwriter David McMillin. We’re friends, I assume he would agree. I’ve also not been shy about how much I love the music Fort Frances makes, and that started before I ever met David. So when we met up a few weeks ago at a local malt shop to grab a couple sodas, we … Continue reading Fort Frances-Harbour
