Short Bio
The Frets by the truest sense are a modern day Alternative Rock band. 
Guitarist Cody Seeger met frontman and Manchester, UK native, Liam Wilkes, through the reliable world of Craigslist as two San Diego transplants looking to form a band. As they shuffled through various players, The Frets were complete after they finally met Drummer John Martinez on Instagram, and bassist William Santana on Facebook. 
The Frets got their start at the beginning of 2018 when they met Grammy nominated producer Billy Smiley. From there, they were invited to Nashville to record their debut EP at Dark Horse, and Castle Recording Studios. Their debut EP, titled 'The EP’, was released in August of 2018. 
The Frets unique sound is a creation of the tech-centric age we live in, and a combination of hooky guitar riffs with catchy vocal melodies. Influences include: Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Oasis, Kings of Leon, and Catfish and the Bottlemen. The Frets have played over 40 dates this past year and headlined Springboard West Music Festival. 
The Frets are currently working on a full length album and have sites set on a tour summer of 2019.
