Fred Hostetler

FRED HOSTETLER HAS BEEN A BLUE SPRUCE IN A FOREST OF MUSIC SEQUOIAS, journeying through blues, folk and the rock era cycling through many aspects of the music business and playing a supporting role to other musicians. He has worked with Jeff Beck, Billy Squier, Graham Parker, Johnny Winters, The Knack, been on stage with Buddy Guy, Mick Taylor, Jeff Healy, and recorded with the Grammy winning producer Jack Douglas. For 9 years he was the manager, rhythm guitarist, and co-writer for the popular southern California blues band Blue By Nature with Karen Lawrence and Rick Dufay, formerly of Aerosmith. Transitioning to his move to India he entertained in hospitals and senior centers with 'Fred's Folk and Blues Revival', a solo acoustic set of old-time music, 50's favorites and blues, all filled with plenty of fun, finger-picking, strumming and banter.

NOW AFTER 15 YEARS OF VOLUNTARY SERVICE IN AN ASHRAM IN TAMIL NADU, INDIA, Fred returns to the USA. 'Heart Radio' marks his first solo effort. The eight song CD is a genre-jumping romp of all original tunes, recorded and produced in the spartan seclusion of rural India and an island in the Pacific Northwest. The tracks reflect the threads of his years abroad.
