Fredo viola the sad song


He had an internet hit on YouTube with "The Sad Song" in 2004. In 2007, he signed with French label Because Music. He released his debut album on December 2008.

In late 2007, Fredo devoted his attention to a long series of live to Digital Performances he called "cluster videos", by releasing one video each month on his website.

In late 2008, working in collaboration with the Spanish agency Aer studio, he released an interactive web site called The Turn, a web site that also serves the function of displaying his new interactive videos. The videos come in unusual shapes (circular, hexagonal) as well as widescreen rectangles, and can be turned during playback.

His second studio album titled "Revolutionary Son" was released under Revolutionary Son Productions, LCC in April 2014. The record was said to be "An audacious album pulsing with rhythm, colour and, above all, sumptuous melody." by Chris Evans of Allmusic. It made #52 on Les Inrockuptibles list of Top 100 Albums in 2014.

In 2015, he released the first of series of short, improvised a cappella pieces titled "The Elementals: It Began To Rain" on May 1, 2015. That same year he began a music collaboration with cellist Melora Creager of the rock band Rasputina, pianist Luis Mojica, and performance artist Ryder Cooley in what was known as "The Platte Clove Nature Theater".
