William Ryan Fritch

My friend William Ryan Fritch is one of the most talented composers I know. I have been lucky enough, through Lost Tribe Sound’s connection, to have been able to work with him on a number of things.  He contributed his talents to a track on ‘White Rooms’, the second Graveyard Tapes record.  He has been helping myself and Ben Chatwin out on a few tracks to be released on our debut record together as Blood Language and he and I (as glacis), along with Ali Millar and Gregory Euclide, have been working together on a collaboration that we are very excited about.   Working with him is a joy.  Not only is he one of the nicest people I have met in this world of music but he’s also stupidly talented.  In fact, due to the vast amount of work he has come out with of late, our label has a subscription package called ‘The Leave Me Sessions’ which allows you to collect all the various WRF records coming out bit by bit.  Here is the deal:

I am not sure what else I can say about William.  His original soundtrack for ‘The Waiting Room’ was incredible enough but add all these solo works along with his work with Jon Mueller on Death Blues ‘Ensemble’ and it’s hard not to think you are dealing with one of the world’s true genius musicians.  What really gets me though is that whilst I thought he was a brilliant composer, I had no idea that he could sing so well.  I mean, I was holding on to the fact that he couldn’t be brilliant at everything…

…so, here’s a few links and a video of him at work.  Please check out his work.  You will not be disappointed.
