The Fritz

Infectious grooves, intoxicating guitar lines and a relentless drive of soul and passion describes one of the Southeast’s newest sensations, The Fritz. As schooled musicians, the members of The Fritz draw inspiration from a variety of musical traditions and techniques. This fusion of styles is rooted within improvised Funk and Rock, but also builds in elements of jazz, Classical, World, and electronic music.

Jamie Hendrickson's versatile guitar style and innate sense of melody first blended with Jake O'Connor's funky bass lines in 2007. From there, they met drummer Michael Tillis, who brings a strong driving energy to the ensemble. Jamar Woods' virtuosic keyboard solos and soulful vocal abilities propel the band into exciting musical journeys. With the recent addition of percussionist Mike Evans, The Fritz has developed a one-of-a-kind sound in the Southeast music scene.

In their young career, success is no stranger. In just a few years, the band has performed at popular music festivals (Bear Creek, Blackwater, Swamptown), been featured in RELIX magazine and has received accolades from a multitude of media outlets. Relocating to Asheville, NC, The Fritz maintains a rigorous touring schedule around the Southeast. They are preparing to record their second studio album.
