A collective of diverse backgrounds, Indie Rockers The Missing Frets write songs that weave together lyrical content that is both relatable and thought provoking. Fusing the rooted rhythmical heritage of the lead singer's homeland they forge a raw, energetic sound under gritty guitar riffs. The concept of the band was inspired by songwriter, guitarist Shaun Lovell and materialized in 2013 when his wife, Bindu decided to join the project as bassist. Originally out of Durban South Africa, the duo relocated to Philly in 2016 where they teamed up with local drummer Johnny Martin and can now be found based on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Their demo EP ‘Bodhi Tree’ had great success seeing its self titled song making its way to number 80 on the college radio charts. Then in 2020 the video for their single ‘Cartel Sage’ off their forthcoming project stirred up a buzz on Facebook, which set the tone for the release of their debut studio EP ‘Pipe Dreams’. This landed them rave reviews, blog features and interviews including the cover page of Making a Scene magazine as well as the track ‘Unstuck’ landing number six on Banks Radio Australia for two weeks in a row.
