There is no need to “fret”… rock is alive and well. British-American 4-piece, The Frets, are proof that indeed - energetic guitar based rock is here to stay.
The Frets truly are a modern day rock band, a testament to how technology can bring together a group across two countries and four cities. "We formed through the world of Instagram, Facebook and late night craigslist" guitarist/producer Cody Seeger explains. "3/4 of us were transplants, with similar taste in music and a passion to make high energy rock music that will make you bounce."
The band currently calls Southern California (San Diego/L.A.) home - although front man, Liam Wilkes, hails from Manchester, UK. “The majority our influence comes from British Rock bands like - Arctic Monkeys, Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Kooks, etc.” vocalist-guitarist Liam Wilkes says.
The Frets recently won Song of the Year at the San Diego Music Awards in 2020 - edging out Blink-182, P.OD. and Switchfoot. The nearly two year old group is set for a highly anticipated new EP in April 2021 - following singles in December and February.
