This World Fair

You know how Five For Fighting and Secondhand Serenade are really just one person? No? Well they are. Add to that list This World Fair. Chris Kalgren is the man behind the name. From Minnesota, Kalgren describes his music as "the pop side of rock and the rock side of pop." And that is very fitting actually. This World Fair thrives on guitar driven melodies and lyrics that are easily identifiable ranging from failed relationships to falling in love.

First single off the new album, which is in stores now, is called San Francisco. It is the perfect glimpse into This World Fair. It's a mid-tempo number about losing the one you love due to their ambitions in life (You're gonna see the world through a brighter window/you're gonna miss me baby when you're feeling low). All in all, This World Fair is a great example of what happens when you mix great songwriting with strong melodies.
