CEDARBURG, Wisc. (Jan. 26, 2016) – Chicago indie band Fort Frances takes the Cedarburg Cultural Center stage at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 12 as part of the “Center Stage” series.

Presented by Port Washington State Bank, the Center Stage series is also sponsored by Fromm Family Foods, The Washington House Inn, Fokus Forward Consulting, and after-party sponsor The Stilthouse Restaurant.

“Fort Frances blew me away song after song after killer song.” – Adam Duritz, Counting Crows

“You definitely want to keep your eyes on this band,” Bruce Warren at WXPN wrote when Fort Frances released Harbour, a self-recorded EP that landed the band on stage with a who’s who list of emerging indie rock names including The Lone Bellow, PHOX and We Are Augustines. Now, as the band prepares to release No One Needs to Know Our Name, that prediction appears to be true.

Fort Frances describes their music as “sensitive rock.” Chicago-based Fort Frances frontman and chief lyricist, David McMillin, says, “The band expands well beyond their Americana roots into a bold new direction.” The band’s new EP stretches well beyond their Americana roots to unlock the potential that’s been building for the past two years with jubilant horns and dueling rhythm sections.

Samples of Fort Frances’ work can be heard on fortfrancesmusic.com and the bands viral cover of the 90’s hit “Summertime” can be found at https://youtu.be/XvdATQf6wtw.
