Fresia and the Offsprings is this trio's self titled debut, recorded live off the floor in their living room. its also Eric Fresia's first attempt at recording his own albums at home on his own time.
In 2006 a home schooling experience became a musical partnership when singer songwriter Eric Fresia decided to include two of his children as band members while traveling through Mexico. With a small marimba for his daughter Charlotte and a djembe for his son Sam , the new trio quickly charmed their audiences with Eric's repertoire of mixed languages and genres, Mexicans and travelers alike. Upon their return to Canada, Eric tested his new band Fresia & the Offsprings at the Halifax Atlantic Jazz Festival for the release of his third CD, and the trio has been busy ever since.
The roads since Mexico have taken the trio on a 4 month tour of North America, the release of 4 CD's, a three month tour of the Southeastern US along with continued touring of Eastern Canada. Some festivals they have played at include the Winnipeg Folk, Guelph Hillside, Stan Rogers, Evolve and Harvest Jazz and Blues Festivals.
