Friendly Thieves

Meet the Band

“Liquid Grit” is a neo alt funk rock genre that Friendly Thieves totally and completely made up to encompass Sam Wells’ intoxicating vocals and stage presence, Ben Baker’s cr0nchy sax melodies dripping with effects,  Sam Millard’s melody centric, mystifying bass, Matt Chipman’s slim thick grooves, and Jamae Breeze’s masterfully psychedelic lead guitar.
