The Fremonts celebrate the release of their new album, We Don’t Live There, with a summer tour that stops at The Zoo Bar in Lincoln, NE.
Born in New York City and raised in Boulder, Colorado, The Fremonts weave Midwestern ghost stories into restless Americana music. Stephanie Dodd (originally from Fremont, Nebraska – vocals/keyboard/xylophone/accordion) and Justin Badger (originally from Fremont, California – vocals/guitar/kick drum) lace their sound with bluegrass, country, blues, folk and indie pop influences. By blending Dodd’s lyrical voice and Badger’s turbulent style, they take on a range of topics from sprawling tales of escape and ambition to quiet disenchantment with traditional roles in American family life. In their three years of creating music together, The Fremonts have unearthed fresh authenticity in their writing and performances through dedicated practice and community building.

Through the relationship of wife and husband, Kerry and Mike Semrad, a kindred spirit of music has been present. Finding their voices through original songs has become an uplifting journey that transcends just husband and wife; It’s a connection within the listeners and together they find that deep comfort in the soul that is driven by the sound a family creates. Kerry, coming from a background of gospel and blues, lends vocals to Mike’s country and rock influences to make a sound that can only be described as Americana.
