Wednesday, November 15, 2023 – Dori Freeman released the video for the title track of "Do You Recall," her new album out this Friday.
The video features illustrations by her grandfather, Williard Gayheart, an Appalachian pencil artist and musician who's been a major inspiration in her life.
"The song is a reflection of someone looking back over the years spent with their significant other. I think the video imagery captures that nostalgic, daydream type of feeling that the song evokes," said Freeman. "It was especially meaningful to me to work with my grandpa who I'm really close to. He's 91 years old and lives close by. His drawings appear on the walls and help create that feeling of looking back over the years."
Freeman's fifth studio album, "Do You Recall," contains 11 songs and was recorded at her home studio in Galax, Va. where she was also born and raised. It was produced by her husband Nicholas Falk, a drummer.
Galax lies the in southwestern corner of Virginia. Mention of Galax immediately conjures the Blue Ridge Mountains and their music. The Old Fiddlers' Convention has been hosted in Galax for 80 years. So, it should come as no surprise that a new, clear and supple voicing of country music, Dori Freeman, hails from Galax, and that her music finds a vein of pure country and mines it well.
Freeman's voice is startlingly clear and true. "Dori Freeman" is a perfect counterpoint ...
