Frederick The Younger – Louisville, KY
Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, singer and multi-instrumentalist Jenni Cochran grew up loving music. After returning to the USA after working in Vietnam for a few years, she met Aaron Craker who was performing with his band Dr. Vitamin. The two immediately hit it off and Jenni started performing with Dr. Vitamin around Louisville, KY.
The rest was history. They spent time together. They wrote more songs, eventually coming out with their first full length record in 2017 under the name Frederick the Younger. The band is their bond, formed on rock and roll through the lens of psychedelic garage pop and soulful vocals, a tinge of Broadcast mixed with Dr. Dog and The Beatles.
There is an earnestness to their newest songs on a forthcoming EP, due out this fall, that rings true – the kind of sincerity born from experience. These songs feel alive and well-lived, tragic, nostalgic, beautiful, and contemplative, all with a solid hook.
