Very occasionally you come across a space so charming and wonderfully welcoming as if it is waiting in that moment to be discovered by you.

Dan Friese | "The Middle"

from his new album

Somewhere Brighter

available October 1, 2021

“The Middle” isn’t a song about finding some magical compromise in the center of the political spectrum. It’s about maintaining healthy communication with people who disagree with you. When we section ourselves off into bubbles, it makes it easier for us to dehumanize people on the outside. Stereotypes go unchallenged, assumptions
become certainties, and neighbors become enemies. ...

The instrumental arrangement of this song is meant to reflect the chaotic nature of American discourse. ~Dan Friese
