The Phryg is New York City's progressive funk quartet based out of Brooklyn. Equally versed in old-school funk as they are in prog-rock and jazz fusion, their music blends intricate compositions with hard hitting grooves and virtuosic solos. The Phryg was founded in the summer of 2013 by Collin Patierno and Bryan Walters.
The Phryg recently made an appearance at the 2016 Backwoods Music Festival alongside such artists as Tauk and Moe. They can also be seen performing at esteemed music venues including Brooklyn Bowl (NY), The 8x10 (MD), Tellus 360 (PA) and Dante’s (MD).
Having drawn attention from publications such as Performer Magazine, The Jamwich, The Journal News and Pittsburgh Music Magazine, The Phryg released their self-titled full length album in July 2016 as a follow up to their debut EP "Midnight Snack”.
"These bad boys from Brooklyn were hard to peg, with elements of rock, prog and jam, spread thick on a toast of funk. It was delicious to my ears." - Sound and Silence Magazine
