The Frye Family Band has experienced a few lineup changes over the last few years, but there is one thing that has never waivered – Family! The current lineup includes the band’s founder and patriarch Tom Frye, his son Jonathon, Jonathon’s fiancé Mané Hernandez, longtime drummer Eric Reynolds, and Brian Bentz on percussion.
The Band’s most recent recording project Things Unseen was released May 1 of 2020 – “which was not an ideal time to release new music given the inability to tour.” according to Tom. However, in spite of this, Things Unseen did garner some noteworthy attention including a feature of their remake of the Harry Chapin classic Cats in the Cradle in the 2020 Father’s Day issue of CCM Magazine.
“Things Unseen was a special project for us in many ways,” Tom relates. “It was the last project to feature Kaylyn and Maggie (Tom’s daughters) and it was produced by the amazingly talented Michael Farren (Dry Bones Come Alive, Let It Rain, Fighting for Us). But, as proud as we are of that project, we’re looking forward to the release of our new project all the more.”
In 2023, the Frye’s will release a new nine song project, the first to include Mané, some of which have already become mainstays in their concerts including Who God Is and Restless.
