Toronto, ON-based folk singer-songwriter, Dany Horovitz is back with his new single, “Free Tonight”.
The latest single from his debut album, Free Times, Horovitz draws on his literary inspirations and personal experience to deliver music with meaningful messages easily transmissible across social boundaries. As Horovitz puts it, the album — including “Free Tonight” — “is a carefully curated collection of stories about love, loss, and life.”
Driving Horovitz’s eloquently-told stories are his clever instrumentation and robust compositional style — a mix of familiar melodies fused with new ideas. Brimming with guitars, mandolins, and carefully-considered horn placement, “Free Tonight” livens any atmosphere where the greatest singer/songwriters of all time, like Bob Dylan and Billy Joel, are welcome.
Written in Montreal when he was a 19-year-old literary student, “Free Tonight” is one of Horovitz’s earliest and most enduring songs — an unapologetically romantic track intended to convey a simple message best summed up by Horovitz himself: “It is better to keep one truly great person than chase after all the world.”
Horovitz’s overall message on “Free Tonight” was crafted to recount a love story that embraces the romantic implications of being emotionally defenseless “with someone who accepts you for who you are, finding comfort and safety through intimacy and vulnerability.
“It’s the feeling of freedom.”
