Eric Strand (Drums/Sounds/Backing Vocals)
Eric Strand is one of the most passionate and dedicated drummers The Frequency has ever known. He is a dear and close friend. Eric and Ian Franklin first started making music together in various projects back in 2002. More recently Eric began playing with The Frequency in August of 2012. Their chemistry has ripened playing all these years together. Since age 15, drumming has been Eric’s core focus and passion. His thoughts become transformed into cohesive rhythmic energy, always pushing limits. He thrives on experimentation and new sounds. Born with a gift for timing and amazing dexterity, Eric brings inspiration to his audience, who are captivated by the depth and quality in all he plays. Delving into new technologies in sound creation, attempting to satisfy a never-endind thirst for perfection and diligently chasing the unique buzz of being able to create something new…. Eric Strand drums with experience, insight, inquisitiveness and dedication.

Julia Beth is a versatile singer and instrumentalist who has been playing sax, percussion, and singing with The Frequency since March 2015. Soon after joining a local rock band in high school as a singer, bassist, and pianist, Julia Beth realized that music was her passion. From that point on she dedicated her life to music by playing live music as much as possible and and moving to LA to study music therapy. During her time in LA, Julia Beth worked as a session vocalist and performing artist which gave her the chance to collaborate with musicians in genres ranging from rock to live EDM, Irish Folk music, and musical theatre pieces. Julia Beth brings richness and warmth to The Frequency, and a sweet vocal blend.
