Hailing from Topeka, Kansas, Frederick Jewsome is a true triple threat musician that has written and performed various works for Biographies, Television, and Radio. In addition to bringing vocals to the table, plays multiple instruments including Bass, Guitar, as well as piano and Synthesizers. He is the youngest of a family of 10, with 7 brothers and sisters. All in the family were musically talented at different instruments, and he learned a little from each one. He began to pick up the piano at 4 years old, and started piano lessons at 5. It was there that he found he had “a good ear for music” and almost “perfect pitch.”
The son of a late jazz musician and trumpet player (James Jewsome), and brother to current jazz trumpeter Jeff Jewsome, his roots lie deep in jazz fusion and complex chords, as well as Progressive Rock and Hair Metal.
The culmination of his interests has blended his style into one that has been described as a mixture of Lenny Kravitz, King’s X, PM Dawn, and Living Colour, with a touch of Ozzy Osbourne.
