fRITZ bEER and the Crooked Beat / Bio

Singer/Songwriter Fritz Beer heads the group with his down-to-earth, spirited songs about good-hearted people who sometimes go astray. His vocals waiver somewhere between a Joe Strummer snarl and Graham Parker's soulful whine, but it's American music and that means rock, country, soul, and blues laid out in a simple, acoustic format. Beer has several TV and Film song credits and is an ASCAP award winning songwriter. Drummer Elzy Lindsey and bass player/vocalist Dave Baker come to Asheville by way way of New Orleans courtesy of Katrina. Louisiana's loss is North Carolina’s gain. This joined-at-the-hip rhythm section draws from their punk/rock n roll roots making bands and singers sound great for years in The Big Easy and in Asheville. Sim Hickman, the newest member shredding on lead acoustic guitar, honed his craft for decades playing 5 nights a week in jam bands from Jackson to Macon county. In this all-acoustic format with frontman Beer, their skills and raw passion for music truly shines through.
