Tom Frietchen grew up in Strongsville, Ohio. At age 10, he learned to play guitar, by 15, he was starting-up bands and writing his own songs. After high school, Tom and his rock band hit the Top 10 with a song on Z-Rock, a national radio station, along with many other stations. The band was featured in Billboard Magazine and toured cities across the country.
Tom took a break to start a family. Having a wife and 2 daughters changed him, and country music-its lyrics rooted in life and truth- became a new avenue for his musical talent. And while his style has evolved over the years, Tom's music is firmly rooted in guitar. Tom's songwriting reflects life's realities, as he often is inspired by the people and situations close to him. When music is in your heart it never lets you go. The best description of the band...country with a rock spin.
