    Tennessee based, Frets plays a mean guitar and connects like lightning with his audience. He has nimble fingers, and you can feel the steel strings under them. He writes some of his own songs, including a delightful one dedicated to all the women out there like his wife who like to dig in the dirt. “She’s my lady in the garden. She smiles and steals my heart.” “Mine steals mine and she won’t give it back,” he chuckles at the song’s end. Another song describes an autumn ride he took with his wife, and he shares it in the hope that it will get us galloping along. That one is pure instrumental, capturing the spirit of a brisk autumn day and the glory of falling autumn leaves. “Exceptional” is an original song and cries out our need for exceptional people today, heroes, to address the challenges that face us. Winston, Joan, Martin, George (Washington), a litany from history… “Where are you now?” Another very personal song “Angel in the Morning” is for a horse that he and his wife had to put down recently because it was very sick. You can hear that the experience is still fresh and painful, though it’s been transmuted into beautiful music. Crystalline strings. Amazing virtuosity. Frets can move from bouncy rock to an almost mesmerizing and meditative strumming of classical flamenco, pure steely grace sliding into a jazzy riff to finish. Reminiscing about a trip to Ireland, he plays an Irish jig, his fingers so nimble and sure on the steel strings, he takes us to the Emerald Isle. There’s a nice balance between vocal and pure instrumental, and the pure instrumental reveals a man in love with his guitar. He’s playing with it, milking every nuance from it, building to an insane place where the musician is cosmically connected, entranced by his own music, and so are we. Be sure to come and Frets Nirvana's performance … for the pure musicianship of it, the unadulterated joy!
