We’re called ‘froy’ and we’re from Melbourne Australia. We’re 2 guys who have played music together in various configurations over the years who semi retired from music a few years ago. However, given our desire to keep answering the call to music that flows through every musicians veins, we decided that we’d be dead a long time, so what the heck, lets get together again and create something new and have a few laughs a long the way. Out of this desire came the name ‘froy’ and our self titled debut EP which is available on iTunes and Amazon and a host of other online music outlets.
Our EP consists of 6 tracks that we hope appeal to some folk out there and from it we hope to somehow find a bit of an audience. You can check out our webpage at www.froy.com.au to sample our tracks and hopefully you like em enough to invest some of your hard earned and buy them. If not, then hopefully you just enjoy the samples and webpage. ‘froy’ consists of Scott Creswick and Glen King. Scott plays guitars and bass and sings and Glen plays drums and guitars and sings some very sweet harmonies. Anyway, we hope you enjoy our stuff where ever you are on this wonderful space ship they call planet earth.
Sighting influences such as Paul Kelly, The Eagles, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan and The Police, ‘Froy’ may exhibit shades of all of these but at the same time may not be immediately identified as being influenced overly by any of them.
Originally intended as a solo project by songwriter musician Scott Creswick, the very enjoyable recording collaboration with long time friend and former band mate Glen King, proved to be a union worth celebrating by making ‘Froy’ a duo.
Appearing together in Australian independent outfit ‘Lynchpin’ in the early 1990’s, Creswick (bass) and King (drums) had an immediate connection as a rhythm section that gelled and grooved naturally.
After a 5 track EP independent release, Creswick left ‘Lynchpin’ to concentrate on other things.
After 10 or 15 years in the musical wilderness Creswick invested his own funds and decided to commit some tunes he penned over the past 5 years ‘when music kept rearing its head and reappearing in his body and soul’… ‘as any musician will tell, it never really ever goes away or leaves you, it’s a part of you…always’.
Thus ‘Froy’ was born and this self-titled debut EP and collection of songs followed, we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed recording them.
