155 - A Slice Of Heaven With Fretland

This week on No Simple Road we are stoked to bring you Hillary Grace from Fretland! Fretland just released their debut album on May 22nd and we catch up with Hillary to talk about creating from pain, having mental space to create beauty, living somewhere incredibly amazing, what it was like to finally make their first full length album, finding family in your friends, and a whole lot more!


While still getting footing on their newest plateau, Fretland has lots to enjoy in the view behind them. The band corralled two sonic stalwarts for their first full length record, including engineer Nich Wilbur (Angel Olsen, Black Belt Eagle Scout) and Seattle-area sage Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), who mixed the record. The band, rife with energy and momentum, has already created one of those strong foundations that allows for a long story to unfold in great detail and with much revelation.
