Jonathan Frith was born in New York City to Bermudian parents. He began writing and recording music at age 13. His first record "Jonathan Frith" was released to acclaim in Bermuda in 1999, whence Mid Ocean News music critic Roger Crombie gave it five stars and declared: "A Bermudian Star Is Born." This was followed by the stripped down "Sacred Space" and eventually the sonically rich "8 Stories", co-produced with Al Najarian. Frith is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, and has worked in television, written and illustrated books, and spent many years slinging a hammer as a carpenter and cabinet maker.
