In an amazing career that spans four decades, Tret Fure began singing professionally at 16, worked with Spencer Davis at 19, soon after signed with MCA/UNI Records and released her major label debut in 1973, produced by none other than legendary Little Feat founder, the late Lowell George. After several years in the industry as an artist and sound engineer, she went independent in the early 80s, finding artistic success with music partner Cris Williamson in the fledgling Women’s Music movement throughout the 90s. Fure recently released The Horizon, her fourth acoustic CD on the Tomboy Girl imprint, and continues a viable and full touring schedule. In other fields, she markets her own line of Tomboy Girl clothing, publishes Tret’s Kitchen cookbooks of personal recipes, serves as vice-president of her local musicians’ union and co-chairs the charitable New Harvest Foundation, aiding LGBT-oriented organizations. Her songs, created at an individual level, transcend to universal sentiments and are lyrically focused on human issues while musically based in acoustic styles of whatever makes a song work.
