And then watch intimate, super compelling and simple footage of him performing in an abandoned car by going here.
Cool location, huh?
He will release his solo, self-titled debut album on April 3.
What do you need to know about Mr. Felice?
He is from upstate New York-base. The self-titled record by the former member of The Felice Brothers and the creator of The Duke & The King was largely self-produced and recorded in deeply resonant places -- a barn near his home in the woods, an old church in London, an abandoned high school building by the Hudson River.
What he created in these hushed, hallowed places is music that could be called folk, but that has running through it a ghostly gospel-like feel, something otherworldly. Occasionally helping Felice realize his vision were Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons, The Felice Brothers and even the members of a local girl's choir called the Catskill High School Treblaires.
No wonder he performs in an abandoned train car likes it's the most natural thing in the world!
