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.
They 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 bands sound is a combination of driving guitar riffs with catchy vocal melodies and impactful lyrics. Influences include: Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Oasis, Kings of Leon, and Catfish and the Bottlemen.
The Frets released their newest single ‘Naive Adolescence’ in May of 2019. Look for another new single from the band in August.
