The best kept secret in music



Speaking of which, the hippest part of 10KLF, the Saloon Stage, was off and running in great fashion with St. Louis surprise Fresh Heir. While the majority of the music seekers flocked to the big names of Particle and Galactic, the little-known Fresh Heir brought energy and a fresh sound to the Saloon. For my money, this young group was the best catch of the three bands mentioned, led by drummer Nick Savage fusing jazz, funk, salsa and a little bit of playfulness with Skee Lo's one-hit-wonder "I Wish." -

"2010 Music Showcase"

“Nick Savage is a magnetic frontman even from behind the drum kit, and the tight, interlocking instrumentalists know how to sustain a groove. On The Sky's the Limit, Fresh Heir draws on 50 years of soul music, from melodic Motown pop to vocoder funk to beat-heavy neo-soul. Pete Lombardo's guitar injects the right amount of rock & roll into the mix, thanks to Hendrix-like fuzz bombs and modern-rock solos.”
-Christian Schaeffer, Riverfront Times - Riverfront Times

"Chiddy Bang, XV and Fresh Heir"

“The first band of the night was Saint Louis’ own Fresh Heir, who were possibly the highlight of the night, at least until Chiddy Bang took the stage. Fresh Heir were a fusion of jazz, hip hop, and indie music and their repertoire of instruments included a trumpet and a sax, not to mention the several different kinds of percussion instruments and guitars. Fresh Heir packed the stage with their eight members and echoed the big band sounds of jazz with a modern twist.” -

"Best Jam Band 2010"

Horn sections are the new black. Just ask math rockers like So Many Dynamos or Americana bands like Magnolia Summer, both of which, onstage or in the studio, have gotten a cool sonic bump and blast from going brassy. Fresh Heir's horns, however, aren't just a one-off. Integrated into the ensemble, the band's brass, wickedly charted and smoothly played, makes all the difference in transcending the conventions of neo-soul and jazz fusions and making the most out of the Heir's heavy Stevie Wonder-ment. Fresh Heir grooves more than it jams, but when these folks want to light up the guitar and clavinet duels, they've got improvisational pyromania to burn... - Riverfront Times


The Sky's The Limit 2010



Rocking an uplifting mix of Pop, Soul, and Rock to packed audiences since 2007, Fresh Heir is a St. Louis based band that has been making unique waves since their start. Seamlessly mixing that classic Motown sound with modern influences like John Legend, Maroon 5, and Incubus into one unified sound, Fresh Heir keeps you dancing while delivering their positive lyrics in three part harmony over a high energy music bed. Though they’re a young group, Fresh Heir has already reached success on the local, regional, and international level. Known as one of the hardest working and best drawing bands in St. Louis, Fresh Heir keeps the fans coming out, has been awarded such titles as “Best Jam Band” by the Riverfront Times, and receives regular praise from 88.1 KDHX radio. On the regional level, Fresh Heir has conquered 1,000+ seat venues like the Pageant (St. Louis) and the Metro (Chicago) and festival crowds at Iowa City Jazz Festival and 10,000 Lakes Festival (MN). In 2009, Fresh Heir went international, touring European countries such as England and Germany. Fresh Heir’s debut album, “The Sky’s the Limit,” hit the streets in January 2010 and has since been through multiple printings. Not bad for a band with no record label or professional management. Fresh Heir makes it clear with every move that they are one of the most talented and hard working bands around, and in 2011 they will continue to spread that message across the USA.
