fargo arizona is an Ojibwe singer/songwriter originally from northern Minnesota. His musical journey has taken him from Minnesota to Arizona and now to Canada. He calls his sound “Desert Rock” a blend of pop, modern rock, classic rock, tribal, and blues he created from his years on the local music scene in Arizona. Tempe is where he spent most of his career perfecting his craft with one simple bit of advice “Play what you feel”. And that is exactly what you get from this artist. The music brings you in and the vocals connect with your very soul.
The upcoming album is being produced by Robb Vallier, who worked with such artists as Gin Blossoms, Wailing Souls who got a Grammy nomination, and was also on the team that won the Grammy Award for the musical Spamalot. The upcoming months will prove very exciting for this new artist as this will be fargo arizona’s first album recording.
The first single released “My Last Ride” is a story of alcoholism and is based on the Third Step of The Twelve Step program. The song is currently on the National Aboriginal Countdown and is getting airplay on many radio stations across Canada. The upcoming album will prove to be quite a remarkable collection of songs that do exactly what they are intended to do, “Make you feel”.
