Draw a straight line from Philadelphia to Shores of Southern New Jersey. Place your finger in the middle of that line. This is the heart of South Jersey. The pulse of which can be felt and heard in the music of Southern New Jersey’s singer/songwriter T.J. Fry. His roots-driven style is a musical stew -1 part of Tom Petty, 1 part Steven Stills, 1 part Neil Young with a pinch of Springsteen and Allman Bros…yet somehow all his own at the same time. In 2011 The T.J. Fry Band released its first full length CD “No Name Street” independently. T.J.’s version of song-craft employs multiple influences that can be audibly tasted throughout the listening experience that is No Name St.
No Name St. is real life experience flavored with compositional and lyrical integrity. It is available for download on itunes, Amazon, and CDbaby. The main course focuses on T.J.Fry’s ability as a multi-instrumentalist. Impressively, T.J.Fry plays acoustic guitar, electric (lead) guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, and sings lead and back-up vocals.
Since the release of No Name Street, T.J.Fry has received airplay from 93.7 WSTW’s Hometown Heroes program and their sister internet affiliate Graffiti Radio. On May 20, 2012 T.J. Fry made an on-air appearance on Hometown Heroes as featured artist. To add to his media credentials, T.J. Fry was invited to perform several times live on local cable television station and received high volume/positive feedback through unsolicited viewer comments.
