Pat Dougherty began writing songs in a borrowed storage closet. Tinkering with only a borrowed drum set and an old organ, he would periodically emerge to share the works in progress to handful of close friends that would later become Fairfax, AK.
“Dougherty has the songwriting skills and artistry to bring it to the next level.” - Rich Horton RIFT MAGAZINE
After spending the summer performing around the Midwest, Dougherty retreated to an attic in a worn, yellow house in Frogtown and began crafting, Love Stories and Picture Shows.
"Fairfax, AK's way of illustrating the hard work in not just crafting intricate and personal music but that the labor of love carries over into all aspects of their music and how you get to see and hear it. The song, "Just Fine" starts and moves on with a plodding rhythm and melody that eventually errupts into an enveloping Arcade Fire-like sing-along, one of the more heartwarming ingredients in the band's songs on their new disc." - Danny Sigelman CITY PAGES
"Love Stories and Picture Shows is a sweet, cohesive collection of tunes that owe as much to the singer-songwriters of the mid-90s as the folky 60s and punk 70s. It’s a record that slips in an surprises you, like a polished up, lyrically focused take on Spirits of the Red City, or a Hootenanny with an orchestral band." - Carl Swanson CAKE IN 15
