Fred Haring has been a friend of mine for many years. He’s a very gifted songwriter (along with all the other things going on in his life). I’ve been meaning to get his two music videos posted on YouTube for a long time, but finally got to it this morning. Check them out on the music videos page on Fred’s site. By the way, the second video is for the song “This Grand Parade”, which Fred wrote with Dan Baird…the driving force behind The Georgia Satellites, who had a big hit in 1986 with “Keep Your Hands to Yourself”. Dan also produced that album for Fred.
If you like what you hear, check out some of Fred’s best songs here (especially Hey Joe Carter and Where to Begin).
While Fred and I both have written a lot of songs during the time we’ve known each other, we only collaborated one time songwriting-wise, when I helped out on his song Carousel…which you can download on this page.
