Tret Fure began her career at the age of 16, singing in coffeehouses and campuses in the Midwest. At 19, she moved to LA in hopes of obtaining a record deal.  Within a year she was touring as guitarist and vocalist for Spencer Davis, then went on to record her own album in 1973 on MCA/UNI, and opened for the likes of Yes, Poco, and J Geils Band. She has released 15 albums and produced countless recordings by many artists. In the early ’80s, Fure began exploring the blossoming genre known as Women’s Music, recording with and producing the well regarded Meg & Cris at Carnegie Hall (1983) and working as a duo with Cris Williamson throughout the ’90s.

Now, after seven acoustic releases on her own label, Tomboy girl Records, she has re-established herself in the folk world, winning the South Florida Folk Festival Singer/Songwriter Competition and the prestigious Jane Schliessman Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women’s Music. Fure’s latest release is Rembrandt Afternoons, chosen by the acclaimed folk music show Midnight Special as their album of the week.  Her song “Riverbank” rose to #2 on the Acoustic Outpost charts and the song “Freedom” hit #1 on Outvoice.net.

Fure markets of her own line of clothing named after her popular song “Tomboy Girl.” She also teaches guitar workshops, paints, cooks (Fure published the cookbook Tret’s Kitchen, featuring her own recipes), and serves as President of Local 1000, The Traveling Musicians Association–a union geared toward helping traveling musicians find security and longevity.
