“All and all this is a satisfying debut album from a band poised to take its place among the pantheon of great Canadian Indie bands.” – CONFRONT Magazine
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Freddie Mojallal (better known under the moniker The Autumn Portrait)’s recent radio single is in rotation across Canada for “Welcome to the Night”, with an eye-catching music video featured on CMT Canada. Mojallal’s no stranger to CMT Canada; his previous single for “Awake” was played repeatedly on the popular network during the summer of 2011. The video for “Welcome to the Night” received so much local buzz, it was recently featured in the Vancouver Sun among top artists like The Pack A.D. & Wilco.
Freddie & the band have earned themselves media praise from coat to coast and helped amass a large and devoted fan base. Freddie is currently working on his highly anticipated new EP which is slated for release in the Autumn of 2012. This driven musician has worked hard to get where he is and will continue to do what he does best; make honest music to be shared with all his fans. This is bound to be the year of The Autumn Portrait.
