Go Behind-the-Scenes of Jonny Fritz’s Leathermaking Side Hustle

Sep 29, 2015

Go Behind-the-Scenes of Jonny Fritz's Leathermaking Side Hustle

Jonny Fritz is one of the more singular voices in the Americana community. Formerly Jonny Corndawg, the singer/songwriter is known for his humor, sure, but he can also pen a poignant tune with the best of them. His most recent album, Dad Country, earned him critical acclaim and a broader audience. What Fritz's fans may not know, though, is that he's also a talented leathermaker, adorning bags and guitars with cacti, desert scenes, and, of course, naked yoga.

While on the road in Austin, Texas, Fritz gave BGS photographer Sandra DahDah a glimpse into the renaissance man's mobile workshop, which you can check out below. And don't miss the man himself at the L.A. Bluegrass Situation this weekend, where he'll be performing and making custom leatherworks for fans.
