About Rod

Rod Fritz (born 16th April 1969) is an Australian musician and singer/songwriter who has been writing and performing for over twenty years.

He has released several albums both solo and with his band “Fritz” and is best known for his release of the album “Clouded”, in 2011 which attracted well over a quarter million listens on line with songs like “Green Grass and “F U”. Born and raised in Hobart, Tasmania, Rod was introduced to the music scene in the early 90’s by friends who included him in their band “Death & Disease as a saxophone player.

Three years later after disbanding he began writing his own music and shortly afterward recorded his first album “Send Help’ in 1996. By 1999 Rod was back in the studio recording his solo album, “Just another Year”. Rod completed a six week solo tour of the US in 2010 playing at various venues throughout the West Coast including the Viper Room, Los Angeles before heading back to Hobart, reforming “Fritz” and touring on a national level. In Australia, Rod has had several No.1 positions on the TripleJ Unearthed Indie charts and was a top ten finalist in 2012 and 2013 MusicOz awards. Rod performed solo at the 2013 Music Oz awards at “Star Casino” Sydney. Rod has performed at many venues including; The Espy, The Brunswick Hotel, Revolver, The HiFi Bar (Melbourne), The Valve Bar & Ravesis (Sydney) and also Republic Bar and Taste Festival in Tasmania. Rod delivers a unique yet uncomplicated style with strong storylines, melodies and hooks. You will become immersed with the various poetic, inspirational lyrics that he has chosen to share, through his personal loves, losses… and triumphs. Rod’s music is hard to categorise bordering on rock, folk, country, pop and Indie. Rod will be releasing a new album in 2014 and looking at touring both nationally and globally! Rod’s music continues to grow with radio play all around the globe! Too many stations to mention

Rod Fritz

ist ein australischer Singer/Songwriter aus Tasmanien mit Wurzeln in Biberach.  Nach 36 Jahren ist er nun das erste Mal wieder zurück in der Heimat seiner Mutter. Er hat grosse Freude daran seine Wurzeln besser kennenzulernen und die Menschen mit seiner Musik zu verzaubern. Seit Mitte September hat er viele Auftritte in und um Biberach. Er ist so begeistert von Deutschland und der Region Biberach, dass er bereits mit viel Leidenschaft an seinen ersten deutschen Songs arbeitet. Rod Fritz startete seine Karriere vor ca. 20 Jahren in Australien und trat viele Jahre im ganzen Land auf. Die letzten fünf Jahre bereiste er unterschiedlichste Länder und begeisterte die Menschen weltweit mit seiner Musik. Hollywood, New York, Nashville, London und Berlin sind nur einige der uns bekannten Staedte, in denen er erfolgreich gespielt hat.  Als Musiker ist er nicht nur live weltweit bekannt sondern auch im Radio und in den Charts beliebt. Rod hat seinen ganz eigenen und besonderen Musikstil entwickelt, er selbst würde seine Musik der Musikrichtung Indie/Folk/Rock zuordnen. Die selbst geschrieben Songs sind sein Lebenswerk – seine Kunst – und die Inspiration nimmt er aus seiner Lebenserfahrung. Rods unverwechselbare Stimme und seine tiefgruendigen Texte haben einen hohen Widererkennungswert. Songs wie,“All in front of you“ und,“Don´t be sad“ sind nur zwei bekannte Titel von ihm, die gute Laute und positive Energie vermitteln.
