Prior to the pandemic, Fribush was living in New Orleans playing nightly at historic venues like the Spotted Cat, Preservation Hall, and Kermit Ruffins Treme Mother-In-Law Lounge. When work dried up Fribush returned home to NC to quarantine, it was at this time that Fribush met his new neighbor Charlie Hunter. The two developed a relationship and began playing music together nearly everyday. 

Born in Greensboro, NC Fribush began his professional career at a young age, playing a variety of instruments including Steel Pan and Banjo.

In 2017, Fribush graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in Contemporary Improvisation. During that time he worked with influential mentors like Ran Blake, Jason Moran, Jamie Saft, Dennis Montgomery III, Cecil McBee, John Medeski and more.

Fribush has recently produced and recorded music with Charlie Hunter, Lucius, Hiss Golden Messenger, Daron., Joel Savoy, Rob Frabroni, Adrian Olsen, Donna the Buffalo, Dori Freeman, Ric Robertson, and the California Honey Drops.
