Based in Asheville, NC, The Fritz is truly a band that defies the word ‘genre.’ 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 its young career, The Fritz has received favorable publicity at local festivals in the Southeast: most recently performing at The 2010 Big and Hearty Festival and The 2010 Bear Creek Music Festival. The boys maintain a rigorous touring schedule around the Southeast, constantly spreading their art to keep up with the demand.

Jahman Brahman is a four-member collaboration originating from Columbus, Ohio in 2003, and currently residing in the mountains of Asheville, NC. The musical intuition of each member overcomes the restrictions of any particular genre as they pioneer the musical trail with a sound completely their own. The name Jahman Brahman emerged from each member’s goal to achieve the ultimate state of musical cohesion; each instrument connected to one another to create a piece of music from the heart of one.
They’ve described their particular style as shred ‘n’ flow, a dynamic sound with a wide breath of influence, but a focus on rich, fluid, progressions of energy. Providing the low end, Nate “Brother” Brown brings his own style of funked out and super fresh bass grooves giving depth to Justin Brown’s full and conscious lyrics. Drummer Rowdy Keelor gives the sound its steady concrete pulse providing the heartbeat for Casey Chanatry’s riveting guitar-work. Combined, Jahman Brahman leaves the listener with a message on life, love, and the wonders experienced being part of an extraordinary musical family.
Each member holds a unique passion toward many different audio paths, with influences ranging from classic rock to electronica; from punk to jazz. Instead of conforming, they ascend music through the coalescence of their diverse styles, taking risks that unfold into powerful jams and creative compositions.
