About Byron Fry

Byron Fry is a veteran of two decades in the LA music industry as a composer / arranger / producer / guitarist. His credits span numerous films, TV productions, records and international tours. As a professional musician, Byron has worked with Michael MacDonald, Tiffany, Michael McKnight, Billy Davis Jr, Barry Coffing and a slew of other #1 hit artists in the studio and on stage; as a Composer / Arranger / Producer, he's scored many hours of footage for Film and TV and written, arranged and produced every style for live shows and records. He's worked with NBC, FOX, Discovery, ABC, Warner, Motown etc. and has been on many live international TV concert broadcasts, movies and TV shows; he's been musical director of a $250,000.00 theatrical musical's 3-month run, written a symphony and conducted its premier. In 2010, he spearheaded the writing of a major-label rock opera by an international team with multiple platinum records and number one hits under its belt.

In his career, he's played every genre in every kind of project; among the LA studio musicians he's known for two things: one is that he's one of the most versatile guys on Earth; the other is his perfect pitch.  It is this uniquely diverse background that brings so many elements into his music, making his albums so schizophrenic.

Greetings, Earthlings!

I hope this update finds you healthy, hale and happily productive, filling the world with delightful shenannegans.

I've been on the road playing shows all over the US a lot lately (have a look at some pics: (expired link) ) and of course I've also been writing, arranging, producing and teaching clinics during my time "off".

I'm very pleased to announce my latest endorsement:
Paul Reid Smith Guitars! I've got a new Classic (specifically an S2 CU24) which is unbelievably responsive, sounds fantastic all over the range of the instrument and plays like a dream. It'll be heavily featured on my next album, the writing of which is pretty much done. Now it's just a matter of carving out the time to record and mix the thing!

In other news, I have a BLOG that you'll like! "The Knucklehead Logs" can be seen at (expired link) ...here are a few samples. Feel free to comment!

I've also done five radio interviews in the last year, so things appear to be picking up. You can read the magazine & e-zine interviews and reviews here:

As always, my albums are available at CDBaby and iTunes, CD Baby being the only place you can get actual high-quality, factory-pressed CDs with splendid graphics and such. They really do sound MUCH better than mp3. And they're available to what they call "every country on Earth", though I doubt if that includes North Korea.

Stay cool, healthy and brilliant--- and keep GOOD MUSIC in your life, every day!

Cheers,

Byron

3) I’m starting a series of instructional videos. The first one (about getting good tone) is filmed, currently in post-production and should be out soon;

4) I’m getting more and more into giving clinics at Guitar Centers. I might be coming your way so keep an eye out for that! And…

5) I’m starting work on my next album!

Thanks for all you do to spread the word about my music; I’m humbled by and grateful for your support.

Stay brilliant and cheers!

Greetings, Earthlings!

   I have a limited, time-critical offer for you…
Most of you know me as a composer / arranger / producer / guitarist / recording artist, but there's something else I want to make sure you know about.

   Over the years, due to the steady growth of disregard for musical education in American culture, I've grown increasingly fond of teaching, to the point that I now hold it as a higher calling.  I've done a lot of it---as a contract artist for the State of California, as faculty at Deep Springs College as well as California College of Music in Pasadena, also in clinics, workshops, master classes and privately, both in person and online via skype or googlechat---and I can say with all humility that I've gotten good at it.
   Studying privately 1-on-1 will ALWAYS be the best logistical model for learning anything.  I custom-tailor the curricula to meet the needs of the individual, and there is a LARGE number of things I teach, from the world's best and least-confusing harmony / theory curriculum to composing / arranging / orchestrating, production techniques, etc etc…so this isn't just about guitar.  Have a look at my curricular menu:
(expired link)
All levels and styles are welcome, from total beginner to seasoned pro wanting to break off a plateau.
My rates are very reasonable:  $45 USD per hour, AND…between now and March 31st, new students can get the first 4 lessons for the price of 3.  Yep, I've slipped my moorings, I know.

   Thanks for your time, hope to hear from you soon!

Stay brilliant,

Byron

Greetings, Earthlings!

   I hope this finds you hale, happy and engaging in the kind of activities that arouse the right suspicions in those around you.

   I'm duly honored and very humbled to have had my latest album "Explosive" reviewed by Laurie Monk for 'Truth in Shredding', with an accompanying interview...thanks, Laurie!

   Have you bought your copy yet?  If not, you should...because that simple act will erase every mistake you've ever made from history.  Not many albums can make such a claim, yet there it is in print.  So really, it's sort of a no-brainer, isn't it?  Here are the links:

High-quality, factory-pressed physical CD, available to all countries:

Downloads, either .WAV or (if you must) mp3, also available to all countries:

Thanks, cheers and be brilliant!

Greetings, Earthlings!
I hope this finds you in good health and spirits, and happily doing the things that get the neighbors talking.
I need your help SPREADING THE WORD:
At long last my next album, "EXPLOSIVE", is RELEASED and is available to ALL COUNTRIES as both Download on Premier Records and high-quality, pressed Physical CD on CD Baby!

THIS IS THE LAUNCH, PEOPLE---let's get this thing OUT THERE!

The album is 14 songs and is my best work to date. I used equal parts Whirling Dervish, Fire-Breathing Horned Demon, Sensual Serpent Dancer and 1967 Shelby Cobra GT500.
I strove to be honest and to keep the monkeys at bay during the process.
Aiding and abetting me in this dubious enterprise are people who I can say, in all humility, are some of the finest musicians anywhere on the planet and I'm honored to have their madness on the album.

Link for High-quality, pressed CD: (expired link)

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP GETTING THIS OUT!!
PS: This new album makes an EXCELLENT GIFT!
