Tristan Friedl (frie_t)


Read the Tristan Friedl (frie_t) Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hey everybody! My name is Tristan Friedl and I go by the name frie_t. I'm a 22 year old artist/producer/songwriter from Simi Valley, CA. I love music and have for years! I spend most of my money and time either making new music or going to music festivals.

I grew up playing sports and played baseball all the way through high school. I had a couple offers to play college but decided to hang up the cleats and pursue music. Directly out of high school I went to Loyola Marymount University for two years majoring in Recording Arts then transferred to the Los Angeles Film School. There, I have finished my Music Production degree and am currently working on getting my Entertainment Business BA degree!


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


When I first started writing music, almost 10 years ago, I was really in to rap and my favorite artist at the time was Eminem. I read a couple books about him and was just fascinated with his story. I've seen "8 Mile" countless times. Over time though, especially since I began producing a couple years ago, I've gotten really in to electronic music. That's mostly all I listen to nowadays! My favorite artist as of now is probably Porter Robinson. I was progressively getting more and more in to that type of music, then I saw him live and it changed my life haha! It was one of the first electronic shows I had ever seen and it blew my mind. I just absolutely loved the atmosphere and everything about it.


What´s new right now?


My newest release is this song called Move Away. It is the first song I have personally released on Apple Music, Spotify and all other major platforms. It's also the first song I have released as not just an artist, but a producer as well. It's a really fun, dance/EDM type of track. I have a verse on the song but most of the vocals are done by Kid.Milfa. He's a really dope artist that I work with often. We both co-wrote the song and both mixed/mastered it ourself. If you have time, please check it out!
