New Indie Blues Band Fritz Montana Signed With Barb Rocks!

Formed in early 2013, new blues/indie rock trio Fritz Montana have already been making waves and getting noticed by industry folks.  Due to a connection through a photography friend, the band met Kirk Harding from Crowd Control Management, manager of The Neighborhood and Little Daylight, who was very impressed with their sound and gave them some guidance on what his label is looking for.  The band is a cross between The Black Keys and The Strokes, with a noticeable Jack White feel in the vocals; some even throw Atlas Genius in the mix.

I'm truly excited to be working with Fritz Montana and feel this young band has a lot of potential to make it big.  Live 105 Music Director Aaron Axelsen debut their song "Say It So" last Sunday on Soundcheck and received a lot of texts from listeners diggin' it.   Fritz Montana is currently in 4th place in Live 105's Favorite Local Band Poll!

I encourage you to check them out and see what everyone's talking about.  Plus they're playing The Blank Club on Friday, November 1st, with Kiwi Time and All City Elite, which is a great time to see their live set!
