FDR is the alter-ego of acclaimed songwriter Felix McTeigue under which he emarked on, and created, what is The New Deal. This 3 CD set was born in the fall of 2005 when I began the daunting adventure of digging myself out of a creative rut by simultaneously writing and recording 50 songs in 50 days - one song a day. From my bedroom apartment on Avenue C - overlooking the FDR drive, the east river, and the lighted city skyline - I stubbornly completed a new song each night between the dates October 14th and Dec. 9th 2005 (with a few days off). Often recording until dawn, I played all the instruments - drums, bass, guitars, piano, organ, and sang the multitude of vocals and harmonies. Of the resulting 50 self-produced songs, 32 of the these songs comprise this collection. If you play it loud in your car, headphones, or stereo you might even hear the ambulances, buses, and traffic roaring by on the FDR drive. - FDR, May 17th 2006, NYC.
