The Baker brothers were born in England and came over to the U.S at a very young age. Fry, who hails originally from Chicago, met Oscar Baker while in school and the rest is history. The trio has been playing together under the name FLETCHER since 2012 where they formed as a basement project.

Over the past four years the trio has electrified audiences all over the Windy City and across the country.

The trio made a must hear appearances playing an acoustic set on the Nick Digilio Show heard on WGN Radio, Local Anesthetic on Chicago’s WXRT, snagging a spot JBTV, and gaining a noteworthy mention from BBC Radio.
Oddity’s sound is of a quintessential alternative rock band; loud, upbeat, and energetic creating a sound that people can’t help but tap your feet or even dance. The trio’s sound is infectious and will surely draw in listeners now matter the circumstance. The band's influences span from the Arctic Monkeys, the Foo Fighters, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, and Foals. All in which certainly can be heard in their music capturing the epitome of the British rock sound. While having this crisp and upbeat sound the band is extremely relatable. Two out of three members are brothers and all have known each other for ages, so related or not it is very evident that Oddity has captured a very collaborative sound where everyone’s voice is heard.
