Today we’d like to introduce you to The Frequency Principle: Thomas Lynch and Sheri Brooks aka Cherry Red.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
The Frequency Principle started as a four-piece band under the same name in 2015 formed by Cherry Red. Thomas Lynch was slated originally as our drummer, and a couple of guest bassists joined us for our large shows. With most bands, our personnel changed with the original guitar player leaving to pursue a solo career. Fortunately, Thom stepped up as the primary rhythm guitarist and has remained in that role ever since. Our duo continues to gain momentum with increasing personal growth and shows. We enjoy playing coffee shops, breweries, festivals, benefits, and backyard parties. We play Chicks with Picks supported events when we are called upon to do so.
It is our continuing love for music that grew along with our love for each other. We have been inseparable ever since and are now engaged — a duo in life and music.
Please tell us about your art.
We are a cover song duo that plays music spanning from the late ’60s to current but, we specialize in 80’s and 90’s Alternative songs. We include songs in our repertoire that we relate to and listened to when we were kids. We are constantly expanding our set list to include more and more songs from the “Generation X Era” (both popular and obscure)
We believe in our music community, supporting other local musicians and local businesses that support local, live music in Arizona. Thom and I do our “level best” to go out and support other artists at their shows. It is our belief that it is strength in numbers. We try to attend as many shows as we can provided, we don’t already have our own show to perform.
What sets us apart from just cover songs is:
A few local singer/songwriter’s from the valley have given us permission to perform their original songs (covering them with our own version) Local covering Local. They have expressed that they are honored and are excited to see what we come up with. We’re excited to say we released our first live music video on March 19, 2019 to view on Facebook featuring the music and lyrics of one of the valley artists. You can check it out on our Facebook page.
It is our goal, however, to have our own original music and release it into the world. We are currently in the beginning stages of that process and hope to share with you all soon. It is the local scene that inspires us, and we are truly amazed by the talent that is growing in Arizona.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national or international events and issues affect your art?
We think social media plays a huge role on what content is seen. Musicians from our generation didn’t have the resources like the young musicians today now have. With YouTube, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and countless other apps it is easy to get your art seen and heard. Technology is constantly changing; if you don’t move with it, you get left behind. If we want to stay relevant, we have to embrace this constant change and learn to use the tools to get ourselves in the public eye to share our music.
