Fat Freddy’s Drop have carved a place for themselves in music lore; NZ’s highest-selling album by an independent artist (Based On A True Story), a slew of RIANZ Tuis for everything from Best Producer, Album of The Year, Best Artwork, Best Video to People’s Choice awards, a multitude of performances at internationally acclaimed festivals including SONAR, Bestival, WOMAD, Lowlands, DEMF, Pukkelpop, Glastonbury and Roskilde. Not to mention sold-out and legendary shows at venues such as Brixton Academy (LDN), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Vega (Copenhagen), The Coliseum (Lisbon), Henry Fonda Theatre (Los Angeles), Columbiahalle (Berlin) and Le Zenith (Paris).
The seven strong line-up pretty much remains the same; vocals, guitar, synths with assorted keys, 3 piece horn section as well as a guest MC. The music composition starts from a collective jam reflecting a mix of influences, soul, reggae and techno. You might sometimes detect a side order of country or epic dub. You might even get a whiff of blues, ska or Chicago house. Consequently, no two live Freddys gigs are ever the same as the jams switch to the stage and tracks are road-tested for recording in the studio.
The current Freddy’s HQ is Bays Studio; a studio equiped with a decent kitchen, inextricably linking the band’s love of good cuisine matched with music.
