Description

Tret Fure began her career at the age of 16, singing in coffeehouses and campuses in the Midwest. At 19, she moved to LA in hopes of obtaining a record deal. Within a year she was performing as guitarist and vocalist for Spencer Davis, touring with him and penning the single for his album “Mousetrap”. She went on to record her own album in 1973 on MCA/UNI Records, with the late Lowell George of Little Feat as her producer. With the success of that release, she opened for such bands as Yes, Poco, and the J Geils Band.

One of the most prolific artists in the contemporary singer-songwriter arena, Tret Fure has released 15 albums and CDs over the course of her 46 year career. In addition to being a gifted songwriter, Fure has engineered and produced countless recordings by a variety of artists, including her own work.

Now after 7 acoustic releases on her own label, Tomboy girl Records, she has re-established herself in the folk world, winning the 2004 South Florida Folk Festival Singer/Songwriter Competition in 2 out of 3 categories, Best Overall and Best Up-Tempo Song. 2004 also brought her recognition with the prestigious Jane Schliessman Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women’s Music. In 2009, Tret was voted “Pride In The Arts Favorite Female/Lesbian Musician”. In the same year she received the Janine C Rae Award for her work in Women’s Music. She is currently #3 on the top 20 CD charts for OutVoice.net and #1 on Reverbnation in Newport News, VA.

Tret recently released her 15th album, “Rembrandt Afternoons” (2015) which proves to be her best work yet. It has already been chosen by the acclaimed folk music show Midnight Special as their album of the week and has been in heavy rotation on several of the folk shows around the country. Her song “Riverbank” was #2 on the Acoustic Outpost charts for the week of February 15 and the song “Freedom” is #1 on Outvoice.net for June 2016.
