Recording her first album in 1973, Tret Fure is one of the most prolific artists in the contemporary singer-songwriter arena and she has been major player in the Women's Music genre since the 80's. A master of musical technology, experienced engineering and producer with her own label - Tomboy Girl Records - Tret is a teacher, an incredible vocalist, a gifted instrumentalist and she has recently re-established herself in the folk world winning prestigious songwriting awards and the Jane Schliessman Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women's Music.
"For those who love Tret Fure's music, and for those first coming to the songs of this talented singer/songwriter and producer, this recording is for you. Tret opens both heart and mind and gives herself over to the music. And it is beautiful music, indeed, addressing where we have come to in life, and where we are going--gathering our loved ones around us all along the route. There is wonderful playing by all of the musicians involved. Tret Fure may be offering us A Piece of the Sky, but she offers us her open heart as well. It is hard not to reach in and find a song that speaks directly to you, the listener. Reach in and listen."
- A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange by Roberta B. Schwartz
Cassendre Xavier has co-billed with Alix Dobkin, Lucie Blue Tremblay, Toshi Reagon, Pat Humphries of emma's revolution, Ubaka Hill, and Anne Rabson of Sapphire: Uppity Blues Women. Under her Serious Creature Music label, she released 6 original recordings described as "a cross between Tracy Chapman, Sade, and Enya" (Steven M. Wilson, Borders), and her album "Live at Tin Angel" was honorably mentioned by Philadelphia City Paper's M. J. Fine as the number 9 of "Top 21 Local EPs of 2007". WXPN 88.5's Amazon Country host Debra D'Alessandro has said, "Her stage presence is one part sex kitten serenading in heels, two parts powerhouse kick-ass feminist troubadour poet. In concert with Cassendre Xavier, there is never a dull moment."
