He has written poetry, published novels and played in several other bands, including The Felice Brothers and The Duke and the King. It wasn't until he had a heart attack at the age of 33, though, that Felice realized that he needed to swallow his fear and self-doubt and go solo.
On today's episode of World Cafe, Felice discusses his heart attack, the birth of his first child one month later, and how his harrowing experiences fit into and inspired his music. Felice's previous music projects should be familiar to World Cafe listeners, but Felice's self-titled solo album is quite unlike anything he's done before. This album revels in the quiet strength of Felice's story telling and, in exploring death, celebrates life.
