n anticipation of FRETLAND's debut full length release in May 2020, the band will bring their songs down the west coast.
"The groundswell of support for Fretland is reaching a critical mass, and it appears that the band is ready for a big 2020." - American Songwriter Magazine
The family quilt of Americana music is long and well worn. With stitches that took hold hundreds of years ago, the legacy of forlorn lyrics sung over spare, twinkling instrumentation depicting long nights, whiskey glasses and love that too often walks out the door extends further than any can remember. And it will continue well past anyone kicking up mud today. But with each passing sunset, we can see new patches added to the legacy. And the next name to be sewn in is FRETLAND.
The band plays songs that dash over hills, harmonize with the breeze and coax honey from tall trees. Founded by Hillary Grace Fretland, the group also includes the tasteful Jake Haber and subtle Luke Francis on bass and guitar and Kenny Bates on drums. FRETLAND’s self-titled, 11-track debut album, which is due out in early 2020, includes the epic, “Long Haul,” reflective, “Have Another Beer,” and the revelrous, "Friendly Fire." Their first single has already received high praise from The Boot and American Songwriter Magazine.
While still getting footing on their newest plateau, FRETLAND has lots to enjoy in the view behind them. The band corralled two sonic stalwarts for their first full length record, including engineer Nich Wilbur (Angel Olsen, Black Belt Eagle Scout) and Seattle-area sage Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), who mixed the record. The band, rife with energy and momentum, has already created one of those strong foundations that allows for a long story to unfold in great detail and with much revelation.
After releasing her first EP,
Maile Mae is making a statement. The singer/songwriter traveled to Ashland,
Alabama to record her EP and work with artist/ producer Kevin Moon, who
has worked with artists such as Daryle Singletary, Ashton Shepherd, Lorrie
Morgan and John Anderson. With her soulful and classic sound,
Maile is paving her way through the PNW and beyond. Since releasing
her new project, Maile has been playing all over the west
coast and just returned from her spring tour throughout Oregon,
California, Arizona, and Nevada in April of 2019.
Maile has opened for many Nashville
recording artists such as Maddie & Tae, Jon Pardi, Keith Anderson, James
Otto, and most recently, Scotty McCreery. Maile Mae and her band have performed
at large outdoor venues including Bite of Seattle, Taste of Tacoma, Meeker
Days, and the Enumclaw Rodeo to name a few. The country singer also plays
casinos and large festivals including Spur Festival and most recently,
Watershed Festival, one of the largest country festivals in the
country. While also performing acoustic shows, Maile has played at coffee
houses, wine bars, and breweries.
