"Bonfire Music Presents: A Little Orange Couch Session with Fall River Footmen"

n terms of the number of people we’ve hosted for a Little Orange Couch Session, our session with the Fall River Footmen was our largest yet. We even relocated our world famous orange map, no pun intended, to a more fitting wall. If you have kept up with our last few sessions, you’re most likely recognizing a few repetitive faces. For example, Kaela Kahn, to the right of front man Sean Giddings, utilizes both Jordan Burchill (jammin’ in the corner) and Daniel Parr (upright bass). Later, we hosted Jordan Burchill’s solo project, in which the Sean’s, Sean Giddings and Sean Casey, played along side. I feel as if I’m being redundant when continuously harping on the selflessness and camaraderie amongst this group of friends, but with it being as beautiful of sight as it is, there’s no stopping. As we shift the focus to the session above, featuring the Denton-Based group Fall River Footmen, their music, in my opinion, is best described as chamber folk. The Fall River Footmen embrace their folk foundation with storytelling, such as the story told in “Coral Castles”, which Sean describes as “a story about a sad scientist who built a castle out of megalithic tons of coral”, along with the traditional acoustic feel to their music. The folk foundation, paired with chamber instruments, adding a very emotional, very compelling dimension to the songs, is a responsive fusion between two styles of music. Lost In The Trees, who undoubtedly released one of the best records of 2012, A Church That Fits Our Needs, instantly comes to mind when soaking in the Fall River Footmen. This session achieves far more than showing love to the ol’ footmen. It represents the beautiful correlation between friendship and music. It represents active pursuit towards success (not solely commercial). Above all else, it represents the fact that I don’t need a Kings of Leon buildup to get my heart going. Jordan’s upstage right (up living room right) shreds are enough for me. Big thanks to the wonderful Fall River Footmen. - Bonfire Music

Bio

Fall River Footmen was formed by Sean Giddings in the summer 2011. It began as a solo project and became a four piece band. All of the members attended and met at the University of North Texas and while studying music. We all have backgrounds in almost all musical styles and try to incorporate all of our influences into the music. We are always experimenting with different instrumentations and reworking compositions.
