F&M’s signature sound — from the powerfully melodic folk-rock inaugural release of Let Every Light Shine (2007, Shameless Records), the complex and introspective Every Light Must Fade (2008, Shameless Records), Earshot #1 folk chart-topper, Sincerely, F&M (2010, Shameless Records) and the heart warming Wish You Were Here (2011, Shameless Records) — is a musical choice for the more refined. F&M’s emotive observations incorporate an international view that’s finely aged through an urban-Canadian perspective. This unique sound has been critically acknowledged by way of music placements, songwriting merits and special invitations to perform in nontraditional or cross-genre spaces. After a period of silence brought upon F&M by way of a broken hand, a broken leg, and falling victim to fraud (no really!), the trio mark their triumphant return with a release built from another blend — that of broken bones, broken promises, and broken hearts. At Sunset We Sing (November 2014, Independent), is a joyful melancholy celebration of life.
