THIS FRONTIER NEEDS HEROES (USA)www.thisfrontierneedsheroes.org This Frontier Needs Heroes is the moniker of songwriter Brad Lauretti. Brad has released 4 albums, and toured the great cities of North America and Europe, selling one record at a time, making one fan at a time. This determination and DIY ethos brought him on an epic journey around the world. "Real Job" is a new collection of songs that was written over a two-week period during October 2015 while Lauretti was attending the Stetson Kennedy Songwriting Residency at Beluthahatchee Park (Fruit Cove, FL), this is the same historical place where Woody Guthrie wrote over 80 songs and Kennedy, himself, wrote some of his greatest works providing a solid source of beauty and inspiration. This album is exactly what America needs to survive our troubled times! Originally from Brooklyn, NY Brad Lauretti is now based in Nashville, TN. He has performed at Folk Alliance International, Magnolia Festival, Hickey Fest, Gamble Rogers Folk Festival, Gram Parsons Guitar Pull, End of the Road (UK), Reeperbahn, Incubate, Athfest, Clean Water Music Festival, Connection Festival, One Spark, Daytrotter, Savannah Stopover, WDVX Blue Plate Special, the Stetson Kennedy Foundation Literary Landmark Celebration, and is the winner of the Artsville Songwriting Contest. Musical influences: John Prine, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, Woody Guthrie"We're warning you now: You might fall in love with someone in the room during this band's set. So genuine, so commanding, so deceptively simple is TFNH's music that, before you know it, something inside you has shifted - suddenly your staring into someone else's eyes from across the bar." -Folio Weekly (Jacksonville, FL)"TFNH takes a tenacious yet tempered approach that occasionally recalls a slightly less combative Neil Young." -No Depression"Vocally, the songs brings to mind the likes of troubadours such as Billy Bragg, but with a touch of rockabilly and doo wop thrown in for good measure. The video and lyrics speak to the kind of disfunctional relationships we’ve all experienced, and with Brad Lauretti at the helm we are given the feeling that everything will be A-OK in the end." -Glide Magazine
