The Winter Park, Florida resident is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and vocalist (in any particular order) whose music is honest, intelligent and heartfelt all at once. Past efforts include playing in the successful indie-rock trio The Silent Treatment, and most recently Daylight District, a band known for hip hop, improvisation and above all – quality songs. Both bands received airplay on Orlando’s WPRK & Tampa’s WMNF. They were also both regarded highly from critics, with consistently positive reviews, and achieved awards from Weekly Planet, Creative Loafing, & Orlando Weekly magazines.
Always active, Friend continues to create an abundance of songs, remixes and mixtapes. He just finished recording an eight-song EP that has been mastered by Dave Cooley (Elysian Masters, Los Angeles). Available Fall 2011, this release will mark the beginning of Friend as a solo artist.
