On a lark, Rick Levine and Mark Freedman brought their guitars to a sun soaked Toronto park on a lunch hour escape from their humdrum jobs. And when they looked up, they were surrounded by folks who were drawn to their tunes and clamouring to own their music. This spark led to four albums, over 10,000 units sold and nearly 300 live performances.
Invoking the spirit of the great harmony based classic Folk Rock groups (think Simon & Garfunkel, The Eagles and CSNY), Fridge Magnets’ roots music draws on these influences to create relevant, clever and unique songs all their own. Their melodies, harmonies, lyrics and vocals are at once compelling, fresh, and reminiscent, full of both substance and hooks.
