Dori Freeman “If I Could Make You My Own” – Listen

It’s kind of a dream come true situation for Dori Freeman’s first single from her new album. When Dori was 22 she liked to kick-free from the Bluegrass music she’d grown up surrounded by and drive about singing along to her Teddy Thompson CD. Then she dropped him a line telling him how good they sounded together. Long story short, the album Letters Never Read was produced by Teddy Thompson, and yes guitar fans you do recognise the playing on If I Could Make You My Own.  Dori Freeman has kept it Thompson on the album as well, adding a cover of I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight on a collection that she says is happier sounding than her debut “I always want to put out something that’s a genuine representation of what I was going through” noting with a laugh that getting married last year to fellow musician Nick Falk made writing love songs much easier.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan’s music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That’s not much to ask, is it?
