DIY-till-you-die Newcastle native FRITZ (Tilly Murphy) quietly announced herself with a self-titled, home-recorded debut album last year, landing a spot as Independent Artist Of The Week on Sydney’s FBi Radio. A few days later, her single ‘YUK!’ was picked up by Dom Alessio of triple j’s Home & Hosed and a whirlwind debut year of FRITZ took off. Charting at no.6 on the overall triple j Unearthed Charts, Tilly gained some great reviews from triple j sweethearts and fellow contemporaries Tired Lion.
FRITZ then welcomed in the full band. Gathering a reputation for her quirky on-stage banter and infectious laugh, Tilly’s live persona and presence gained the young musician a legion of followers. She has supported the likes of Fazerdaze, WAAX, Jess Locke, Cub Sport, Middle Kids, RAAVE TAPES, The Belligerents, and more just in the last year. FRITZ has also been invited to perform at festivals such as Sounds Of The Suburbs, XrayspeX 2, The Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and Secret Garden Festival.
Tilly was also personally invited by Tired Lion’s Sophie to their Sydney album launch in a Newtown Laundry last September. After the show wrapped up, Sophie took Tilly backstage to gift her old Fender Mustang and some wise advice for her.
Graduating high school just last year, the HSC didn’t slow down young Tilly. Fresh from a national support tour with rising electric lady Ruby Fields, the bubbly young FRITZ has a new single and shiny first ever music video on the horizon for 2018.
