David Fetzer made magic out of thin air. He made comedy out of the drab. He made delicious movies, plays, comics, essays, poems and beer. He made friends everywhere he went.
And he made music. Two full length Mushman records (with musical partner Patrick Fugit) and a treasure trove of home recordings.
The King of Pretend exited stage left 10 years ago and would have turned 40 on December 17th, 2022. He’s not a famous person, he’s a legend who is still very much alive.
What you have here is a gift from the heavens. A magnificent collection of raw, candid, gorgeous original songs, from the heart of a singular artist who no longer walks the earth, but lives in the air. Enjoy it, because you’ll never hear anything like it.
Actually, you might… in a deep pocket of your best dream. But right here we have the chance to once again spend time being serenaded by our most marvelous friend, David Fetzer. The King of Pretend. His love never ends.
