|Pop-rocker Tret Fure's personal background is as diverse as her many musical talents. Born in Iowa, she grew up in Illinois and Michigan's upper peninsula, then moved to the west coast to attend the University of California at Berkeley. She began her music-writing career when she was 19, and worked for a time as a vocalist and guitarist for Spencer Davis before combining her music-making skills with those as a successful engineer and producer for Olivia Records, where she engineered, co-produced, and performed on albums for Cris Williamson and June Millington, as well as Olivia's landmark double album, "Meg/Cris at Carnegie Hall."
Her own first (self-titled) solo album was released in 1973 on RCA Records, and shortly thereafter she toured extensively, opening for such groups as The J. Geils Band, Yes, and Poco. Following the release of her second album, Terminal Hold (Olivia), Fure focused on her solo career, and with the appearance of her third album, Edges of the Heart, she became firmly established as a leading pop-rock performer with unusual depth and diversity. In her most recent album, Time Turns the Moon (Olivia), Fure has continued to pay homage to her roots in folk and rock & roll. Look for her albums on Second Wave Records, a division of Olivia. ~ Phillip Ewing, 80s Retro Music
