Tony Fredianelli comes from a musical family. His father was a member of the Billboard top
selling group the Gaylord's. Hei has a long musical history. In the late 80’s, as a teen he made 4
independent record for the guitar hero record label Shrapnel records,
Fredianelli was the first official guitar player to play in the band Third eye blind. He met Stephan
Jenkins in early 1993 in San Francisco and they wrote and performed under the name Third
Eye Blind until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical
production elements to songs on the debut such as "Motorcycle Drive By" and the hit "Semi
Charmed Life". Fredianelli later from 2000 to Jan 2010 he was it’s lead guitarist and
co-songwriter, backing vocals and
guitar, carried through third album, an EP, and the fourth Third eye blind album Ursa Major.
Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album 'Out of The Vein'.
His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and 2009’s “Bonfire” from the
#1 selling album 'Ursa Major'. Fredianelli was instrumental in helping to reorganize Third eye
blind from 2006-2009, there are many unofficially released, but genuinely important to fans
songs the Fredianelli co authored.
His current Duo version of XEB, which the name Fredianelli denotes as being “a description of
the history of being formerly a member of Third eye blind”, focuses on playing on this tour the
“Out of the vein” record from start to finish, many of these songs of which fans of his may have
never heard played live before.
Tony has always had a unique connection with the third eye blind street teams and fan base he
helped to build. These songs will be played as a duo, with drums and backing vocals with pre
recorded tracks, to compensate for the smaller intimate venues being played, while still making
certain all the memorable parts are covered.
Fredianelli is joined by his songwriting partner and longtime collaborator singer /songwriter
recording engineer, drummer, and also Las Vegas veteran musician Flannery. Many fans of
Third eye blind are familiar with the song “Invisible” which started as a Fredianelli/Flannery
composition, later to become a fan favorite Third eye blind song.
