Fronz Arp is a self-produced artist from Brisbane, Australia, who explores the strength of a DIY approach to music with a clear and unique personal vision and bird-finger flipped at well-trodden mainstream production values. The songs he creates in his minimal home studio are an acoustic guitar-driven, indie-pop melting pot, strung together by strong melodies and Arp’s trademark dynamic voice. His quirky twist on music has often seen him compared to weird pop wonders like David Bowie, Kate Bush, Tom Waits, Queen and Hawksley Workman.
Escaping early on from an isolated upbringing on a farm in rural Australia, Fronz Arp has gone on to release 10 albums and EPs, received song-writing nominations and awards, and has done many high-profile shows and supported some of Australia’s musical greats. Over his latest several albums, Fronz has delved further into his DIY passions. On 2012’s ‘Fronz Arp Is A Tiny Crooked Orchestra’, he released a song every fortnight throughout the year. In 2013, from New York City he wrote and recorded an EP called ‘Deepseabigcitysmallroom’ from the confines of his small, one-bedroom East Harlem apartment. 2014’s ‘Time Travel And The Art Of Happiness’ was made of a monthly released fully produced single.
