Awake O Sleeper consists of Brad Fry

Rock band next up for Agassiz music series

Awake O Sleeper to perform country rock in Pioneer Park

As a band, Awake O Sleeper is fresh on the local music scene. They got together about a year and a half ago, and released their debut album just two months ago.

But their roots go deep, both as musicians and as friends.

“We’ve all been good buddies for years,” said Brad Fry. “We’ve played together in churches and for different bands.”

Since their debut album, a full length, 10-track, self-titled offering of various rock country offerings, they’ve been busy booking gigs. Tonight, they’ll hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. for Chilliwack’s Party in the Park. And next Thursday, they’ll be right here in Agassiz, performing in the Twilight Concert Series in Pioneer Park at 6:30 p.m.

It’s an exciting point in the band’s career, Fry said.

“We’ve been working really hard, and it’s been really fun to get it up and going,” he added.

They have created a Facebook page, where they’ve loaded at least one of their songs for viewers to enjoy, Before.

Their music is “a bit of a southern mix of country and rock,” Fry said, with a touch of faith. While Awake O Sleeper — a name based on a biblical reference — doesn’t label itself a Christian rock band, Fry says their faith definitely comes through in their music.

“I write all the lyrics, and (Christianity) is a big part of my life.”
