For all the times your father or fatherly figure quietly (cursed under his breath while he) assembled your swing set on Christmas morning or bailed you out of an underage drinking ticket at three in the morning, he's earned a little R&R (respect and relaxation) this weekend. Father/Daughter Records put together this mixtape honoring the great support and eye-opening how-the-world-works life talks that dads everywhere have had with their daughters (and sons) forever, whether we liked it or not. And admit it, music is one of the things for which we actually did thank them later. Dad, if you're reading this, this one's for you. (BRUUUUUUUCE <3)
The songs included on this mix are ones that remind me of my dad and also may speak to other people’s connections with their fathers/father figures. Our label wouldn’t be here today without my dad who instilled in me a love of music. The cool thing about music is that it is a universal language that has the power to connect families, no matter how different those family members may be at their core. In the end, it allows us to love, create long-lasting bonds, and most importantly, have fun.
