MEET THE BAND
Logan Fritz is the founder of Fritz & Co. An extremely talented songwriter and musician, he writes songs that reflect deep emotion and personal experience that stem from his single parent upbringing, the familiar themes of love and loss, coming of age, finding himself through trial and error and trial again, all distinctly flavored with the influence of the Appalachian Mountains that he calls home. A graduate of Abingdon High School and a student at East Tennessee State University, Logan currently lives in Abingdon, VA. He began playing guitar at age 11, and started performing for an audience at 14. As a soloist, Logan first played Bristol Rhythm & Roots in 2014 and with a band every year since. He won the Richard Leigh Songwriter’s Rising Star Award in 2014 and was a Richard Leigh Songwriter’s finalist in 2017. Logan plays a Loar LH 250 acoustic guitar, a Loar LH 309 hollow-body electric, & a 1972 Fender Telecaster Deluxe reissue. Other than writing and performing, Logan loves playing pool, bowling, air hockey tournaments with his pals, & seeing other local and national acts. His vast musical influences include: Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Dr Dog, The Replacements, The Strokes, The Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Jack White, Ryan Adams, & Jason Isbell.
Tyler Segraves is Fritz & Co.'s absolutely true metronome. A solid and matter-of-fact drummer who has been a percussionist since 2009, he provides that unceasing BANG in a massive way! He is a drumming machine on his Gretsch Catalina kit and he keeps the beat consistently and magically on every rockin' tune. Tyler is from Chilhowie, VA and currently lives in Johnson City, TN. A graduate of Holston High School, Tyler currently attends East Tennessee State University. He is tremendously laid back, has a keen philosophical nature, a clever sense of humor, and an enormous heart. You rarely see Tyler without that gleaming smile on his face. Outside of music, he enjoys Dungeons & Dragons, playing with his dog, Rory, and spending time with the guys in the band as well as other friends. Music runs deep in his blood. As Logan's older cousin, the wonderful family connection is evident in the music they make together. Tyler's biggest musical influences are Joey Castillo, Ben Thatcher, and Brad Wilk.
Evan Pease may appear to be the quiet one on stage with his cool persona, dark eyes, and calm swagger, but it is all an illusion. Evan is a phenomenal axe-grinder on the bass and brings the music alive with his thumping back beat. Evan has a very impressive resume of performing on stage for years and we were thrilled to add him to the family. He joined Fritz & Co. in April 2017 during the release of our debut album, Our Beating Hearts, and helped seal our rockin' sound. The bass is the element of cohesion that holds any band together and Evan keeps a thunderous grip on the music of Fritz & Co. The consummate rock-n-roller, Evan is from Big Stone Gap, VA and now lives in Abingdon, VA. He knocks out the tunes on his awesome Revelator P-Bass 4. Schooled at Abingdon High School and East Tennessee State University, he enjoys traveling every chance he gets and also loves rescuing animals. His biggest musical influences include Jimbo Hart from Jason Isbell, The 400 Unit for bass, and Derek Tucks.
