Eric Fridrich, singer/songwriter:
Raised on the south side of Chicago, comes an artist who has inspired audiences with his stunning acoustic guitar and soulful harmonica. Eric Fridrich has played many parts of the country, from Chicago to Denver to New York City’s famous C.B.G.B.’s gallery. After creating and then leading two original music groups in Chicago (Time Bomb Taxi, Dogfish and the Bottom Feeders) for many years, he has moved onwards pursuing a new depth in his musical career.

Now living and playing in Seattle, Eric has emerged as a standout in Seattle’s acoustical reformation. Combining his guitar and “second voice” harmonica, his blues-rock and jazz influenced music join a unique and distinct lyricism. Influenced by Eastern modalities, with a sharp American sense, Eric’s consummate songwriting harks of Bob Dylan and John Hiatt. Eric’s journey has now reached well beyond his mid-western upbringing and, he has developed a whole new set of songs to compliment many of his old Chicago favorites.

Eric is currently beginning to record his first studio album with a full band. Stay tuned for this anticipated release, as well as the debut of Eric's new band in Seattle!

Lyrics

Time Will Tell

Written By: Eric Fridrich

hold me now....there's nobody else
hold me now....there's nobody else
if I can get on my feet again
Time will tell x3

winds may blow never know what they are saying
winds will blow whether I'm yelling or I'm praying
if I can get on my fet again
Time will tell x3

I need an angel right now an angel somehow
Time will tell x6

When it rains I always feel like dancing
When it rains I always feel like dancing
If I can get on my feet again
Time will tell x3

I need an angel right now an angel somehow
I need an angel right now an angel somehow
Time will tell x9
