About


In the end, Frazier’s writing is about the road less travelled, paths not  taken, and life lessons... lust and betrayal, passion’s quiet rage, and loving someone so hard through it all that you bleed inside...

Frazier's self-titled debut album is a sucker punch to the heart that is both tragically romantic yet wildly satirical.  With a sense of Seussian sophistication, Frazier aims to bridge the gap between heart & head and challenge the audience with every lyric to entertain thoughts long buried.

 


Everything has led to this...the story of a life on hold with a long overdue day of reckoning; a quarter-life "coming of age" tale…with all the salt and swagger you'd expect from a charm school dropout. For better or worse, this is Frazier.

Jeff Frazier - Vocals, Guitar

IMG_1821.jpg

Jeff Frazier, guitarist extraordinaire, is that shot of Jameson in your morning coffee: his music is subtly delicious and will most certainly get you drunk. 

Jeff was introduced to music at age 11, receiving his first Sears model acoustic guitar on Christmas morning.  He didn't have a guitar lesson until the age of 13, but that didn't stop him from "air-guitaring" for a good 2 years behind closed doors. Jeff was consumed by a practice schedule of 4-6hrs a day and soon became a force to be reckoned with on his axe. He began making his living as a guitar teacher and "gun for hire" playing live and in-studio sessions. This exposed him to a culture of music that demanded discipline and refinement on a daily basis.

 Jeff eventually took a detour from his music career after graduating from Santa Clara University with a degree in biology. In 2008 he left for UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine for 4 years. During that time, the music was put on the shelf, but not forgotten. Jeff continued to write and took time to listen to the life experiences of those around him. This has inspired at least half of his work. After school, he became a small animal Veterinarian which finally afforded him the freedom to resume his musical career.

 When Frazier plugs in and cranks it to 11, he does more than hammer out a great show, he brings the audience right up on stage with him. He boasts about growing up around musicians “better than him,” constantly challenging him to improve and better himself. His musical career has taken him from May to Morello, from Ghrol to Cornell.  He has been melting faces and breaking hearts since 1984.

Chris Mahon - Guitar

Chris Mahon is a Bay Area native, and has been active in the local music scene since 1999.  Lending his guitar skills to everything from black metal projects to Top 40 cover bands, he is versatile enough for any musical need- from ambient textural sounds, to scratchy funk, to full-on shred.

Past bands include Lumberg (hard rock/metal), Tesseract7 (industrial), Overdrive Corporation (electro rock), Flamingo Gunfight (alternative rock), Bullywest (indie rock), Ghost Children (Smashing Pumpkins tribute), Energevil (metal), The Orphans (progressive metal), and Vietus Mortuus (black metal).  

Current projects include Frazier (alternative rock), Western Legion (black metal/doom), ReWind (80s covers), and Bay Bridge Beat (funk/R&B covers).

Chris ‘Picks’ Brumbaugh - Bass

Chris ‘Picks’ Brumbaugh got his start playing music when he first picked up his fathers acoustic guitar at the age of 12, and he has been playing ever since.  Before assuming bass duties for Frazier, he was in a number of other bands which varied in style from punk to alternative to metal.

Picks has travelled all over the world and has played shows in many of the places he‘s visited, opening for national acts like HellYeah, Black Heart Procession, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, and Norma Jean (to name a few) as well as countless local bands. He has also done a fair bit of studio session work as a guitarist and bassist in his off-time from playing shows and touring.

When he isn’t making rock music, he spends his time writing and recording music for his solo ambient project Adronus. The nickname ‘Picks’ came from a bandmate a long time ago who relentlessly teased him for using a pick to play bass and because he always had at least two guitar picks on him at all times - one for guitar and one for bass.
