Fred Brum was studying to be a classical pianist when he was 15, and listened to Zakk Wylde for the first time. Months later, obsessing about getting those raw, visceral sounds out of a guitar himself, he picked up his first guitar, not knowing he’d be setting foot on a stage professionally one short year after and working as hired gun for many artists by the time he was 19.
A very busy session musician, he favours 7-strings and other extended range guitars, such as 8-strings and 36-fret monsters to perform his work and has developed his style and approach around such instruments. Fred is also the proud owner of 070 #002, the second 070 ever made.
Fred released his first solo album Atonement in 2011 and his second album Transcendence was released May 31, 2014.
