About
Brad Lauretti (Singer/Songwriter) of the international touring group This Frontier Needs Heroes is most recently from Jacksonville, FL. Tour Highlights include Magnolia Festival, Gamble Rogers Folk Festival, Folk Alliance Music Conference, Athfest, Gram Parsons Guitar Pull, Connection Festival, One Spark, Jazz Fest After Dark, Blue Plate Special, Flagler Radio, First Coast Connect, Stetson Kennedy Literary Landmark Celebration, and Clean Water Music Festival.

This Frontier Needs Heroes have spent the past 5 years playing shows all over the world. With either a full band or just with a guitar, and their voices, logging thousands of miles in their car, touring the greatest cities of North America and Europe, selling one record at a time, making one fan at a time. This determination and DIY ethos brought them on an epic journey around the world, playing in clubs, houses, and festival stages.

After two successful albums under their belt in which they explored their stripped down alternative folk arrangements, This Frontier Needs Heroes decided to try something different. The name of the band, a reference to Woody Guthrie's famous WWII-era guitar graffiti “This Machine Kills Fascists” didn't just apply to its core members, but it's also an invitation for everyone to become a hero in their own right.

"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

These guys were fantastic! Engaged from the very beginning, able to respond to changes, dressed appropriately for the event and sounded just great. Great covers of John Prine, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neil Young as well as their originals. I recommend TFNH for any event that you want beautiful, quiet music in the background.

I booked This Frontier Needs Heroes - Brad and Sadie - for a company Christmas party and I'm delighted with their performance. Brad and Sadie arrived on-time (early) for the event, and they were setup and ready to go before the first guests arrived. They were easy to work with and flexible. They played great music and engaged the audience very well. They have great stage presence and great personalities for this kind of event – very warm and friendly. They played a wide range of music and were very entertaining. Everyone that attended the event said that Brad and Sadie were the highlight of the evening. I highly recommend them.

We invited This Frontier Needs Heroes to play at our backyard birthday celebration and they were Amazing! The band was easy to work with, punctual, professional, talented and after 4 hours of playing, we didn't want them to stop! The band played a nice mix of their own original songs along with some of our favorite requests and songs that they enjoyed playing. Bradley and Sadie are fun, entertaining and wonderful to listen to. They invited a drummer and another guitarist to join them for our event, and they were exceptional as well. I highly recommend choosing This Frontier Needs Heroes to play at your event. We look forward to seeing them play again soon!
