dfrye's Profile

About me:Dave Frye (hence: Fryed), with a powerful baritone voice and a 5-string banjo in hand, has been performing for more than 30 years. Introduced to the world of music at an early age by his mother who majored in voice at Indiana State University, and further influenced by his sister who also majored in voice at Indiana State University, Dave’s knack for creating complex and solid vocal harmonies is a bedrock addition to the Acoustiblasters sound. An accomplished composer for the band, Dave has either written or co-written a major part of the Acoustiblasters extensive library of original compositions. Dave has played on stage with talents such as Nashville recording artist Alison Krauss and Nashville studio artist Andrea Zonn. Dave's influences include Béla Fleck, Tony Trishka, Earl Scruggs, J.D. Crowe, and John Hickman. A hard working father of two beautiful daughters, Dave maintains a breakneck schedule of performing, working, and family man duties while selflessly offering the world a window into his unspeakable talents. His raspy vocals and his dynamic, hard-hitting style, make Big Dave a standout at any performance. He is originally from Mulberry, Indiana, but currently lives just outside of Indianapolis in Avon where he is a stringed instrument instructor at the Music Station.

Music means to me:Music is a way for me to release my mind and heart. I like to play and listen to everything from traditional Bluegrass to the more modern Newgrass, and Jamgrass. I also like everything from Country to Heavy Metal to Jazz to Blues, and don't mind dipping my toes into other areas of music as well.
General Interests:I am a pre 1900's U.S. military history buff.
