About The Band
“Sweaty; Complex; Supple,” these are just a few words used to define the Bay Area trio, Frozen Folk. Eluding conventional definition, this band digs rusty hooks of thrashing energy into the frothing mouths of innocent bystanders, and reels them in with the lilt of bizarre lyrics and melody. Singer/songwriter Owen Kelley aims to unite influences like Jesus Lizard, Pixies, The Urinals, Eric Dolphy and Thelonious Monk. Patrick Friedman, drummer since the age of 12, and Tim Platz, bassist and jack of all trades musician since the age of 6, lay a brick-wall-backbeat that drives the complex and sonorous machinery of Owen’s chickin’ pickin’ style guitar work.
