Tret Fure
Tret Fure
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 then recorded 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. “Rembrandt Afternoons” (2015) 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 has stayed on the charts for months now. The album showcases Tret's exceptional songwriting and strong voice. With an acoustic guitar and her voice, Tret effortlessly moves between musical styles including folk, blues and even a bit of rock and roll. John Hart from NewFolk Radio in Portland has this to say about Tret, "Favorite tracks are Freedom, Rembrandt Afternoons, and How We Dare. Tret is a national treasure and here at NFR we love her."

Fure also markets of her own line of clothing named after her popular song “Tomboy girl”. In addition, while not on the road, Tret teaches guitar and songwriting individually and in workshop settings. She paints pet portraits on commission and, an accomplished cook, Fure has also published a cookbook, “Tret's Kitchen”, featuring her own recipes. Along with bridging the marketing, production, music and art worlds, Tret also serves as President of Local 1000, The Traveling Musicians Association--a union geared toward helping traveling musicians find security and longevity.
