Acclaimed pop auteur Thomas D’Arcy returns March 3 with his second solo album, the cheekily titled Fooled You Twice, released on MapleMusic Recordings.
D’Arcy produced, engineered and mixed the 10-track collection at his Toronto studio, Taurus Recording, with musical assistance from a host of his well-known friends including Sloan’s Andrew Scott, Broken Social Scene’s Justin Peroff and The Stills’ Tim Fletcher and Liam O’Neil.
“All Over Your Face” is an infectious example of D’Arcy’s exceptional melodic skills, honed over the past decade through his previous bands, Small Sins and The Carnations.
