A FRIEND CALLED FIRE is a high-octane rock trio hailing from Chicago, IL. With a foundation based upon an infectious rhythmic assault, the band's music is a pairing of heavy grooves based in hard rock influence contrasted with delicate soundscapes and fused with compelling hooks and vocal melodies both genuine and purposeful. The band’s diversity is apparent in their intense electric performances as well as spirited acoustic sets and proves that much like their name implies, A Friend Called Fire in many ways creates and destroys with passion and power.


The trio is quickly making headway in their native Chicago in addition to many regional and national markets through relentless touring, marketing and promotion efforts.


A Friend Called Fire’s new single “The Lightning” presents a departure from their traditional sound, with a stronger emphasis on roots music influence and vocal harmony while retaining the energy and delivery for which the band is perhaps best known. The band is also hard at work on an upcoming documentary project inspired by their new music and based in the concepts of friendship and communication in the 21st century titled The Next Great Fire.


A true working-class independent musical force, A Friend Called Fire handles all booking, marketing, promotions, artwork design and merchandising completely in-house with the highest level of detail and professionalism. They have performed over 200 shows in the span of only a few years, including six independent U.S. tours.
