Waking September is a country music duo from North Carolina. Jesse Frizsell 26 (guitar and vocals) and Chris Brittian 26 (bass, backing vocals) met in elementary school, and have been life long friends. After a few failed rock bands the two kept coming back to country music, “Its just more fun to write, the stories have more meaning to us, everything we write is based on something real in our lives” says Jesse. The Duo has always made time for writing music, “ we have worked full time jobs since we were 17... we have done everything from working in car garages, home depots, landscaping, fitness centers, a mailman , and a soldier...we didn't take the college route” jokes Chris. The songs of Waking September reflect their life experiences, they have a realness to them that is relatable to most people. While Jesse and Chris are lighthearted and fun you can tell they are not overly bubbly and seemingly coached as some country and pop musicians can come off as being. There is a grounded earnestness to them, even when they are cutting up and joking around or preforming fun party songs, or ballads, they mean what they sing and you can feel it.
