Jonny Fritz Releases Sweet Creep Via
ATO Records Today

Sweet Creep brims with Fritz’s tongue-in-cheek ruminations, but it also reveals a more tender side of his songwriting. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry.”  – Rolling Stone

“A first-rate satirist whose off-kilter sensibility expands and challenges the very boundaries of what constitutes fair game in pop songwriting … country’s most genuine outsider of outsiders” 

American Songwriter, 4 Stars

TORONTO, ON – October 14, 2016 – Jonny Fritz released his eagerly awaited new LP Sweet Creep via ATO Records today. The album is currently streaming on Rolling Stone along with an in-depth feature, listen and read here. Rolling Stone declares the album “shows off Fritz’s undeniable eccentricity… his most consistent record yet.” Produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket, the album offers a pared-down and uninhibited sound.

Sweet Creep marks the return of a renewed lyricism in country music, a recurring theme in Fritz’s previous album Dad Country. Recorded in James’ makeshift hilltop studio in Montecito Heights, the album reverberates with the feeling of sunny vistas. Jonny gathered Nashville’s Joshua Hedley and Dawes’ Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith and stripped things down to the essentials. Recorded in just three days, the fresh air, freedom from studio pressures, and strong cups of tea all mix into the music.

A Montana native, Jonny was raised in Virginia and has passed weeks in nearly every city in the United States and overseas. He is a torchbearer, brimming with personality in the celebrated country music tradition. Fans look to country musicians such as John Hartford, Roger Miller, and Billy Joe Shaver for more than just music. They look for a life, for outrageous legend, for a showmanship on and off stage that Jonny Fritz will never fail to deliver. He might not have shot anybody or spent any considerable time in prison, but on Sweet Creep he reminds himself and his fans that sometimes great lives can also be pretty good ones.

Fritz will be taking the new album on tour starting next week with Jamestown Revival. Check out the dates below.
