Fred Hostetler, critically-acclaimed independent recording artist, singer-songwriter-guitarist, author, and musical troubadour, looks back over his musical body of work in 2022.

“Thanks and Seasons Greetings to all of you who have contributed to making it a great year for indie artists. Where would we be without your help”?   

  Fred Hostetler’s 2022 Year In Review 

  • BEST LIVE GIG: “The Day Goshen College Got The Blues” at Ignition Music Garage, October 7, 2022 (‘Sold Out’ and ‘come back any time’ are the words indie artists love to hear)
  • ALBUM RELEASE: Wall Of Dreams (Mukthiland Records)

“In every aspect Fred Hostetler’s WALL OF DREAMS has been a joy from start to finish. In a Parallel Universe this will be the soundtrack to the Fourth Summer of Love. Fred Hostetler rocks!” – THE ROCKING MAGPIE (UK)     

(Fred) Hostetler feels no particular constraints or boundaries to expressing himself through music…that what attracts me to WALL OF DREAMS the most.”JOHN THE ROCK DOCTOR      

  • LOOKING AHEAD TO 2023…Fred is currently putting the finishing touches on his fifth album, scheduled for release early next year.
  • In 2022 Hostetler’s music was streamed on Spotify in nineteen countries worldwide, registering a 34% increase in followers this past year. 
  • Fred posted sixteen new videos on his YouTube Channel, this past year, with forty-three new subscribers, an 8% increase. 

Fred Hostetler crosses the great ‘genre divide’ from folk to blues and rock, brought to life by many of the artist’s original songs and reflections. He has worked with major artists including the late, great guitarist Johnny Winter, Graham Parker, Jeff Beck, The Knack, Billy Squier, and Grammy-award-winning producer, Jack Douglas. Along with Karen Lawrence, Hostetler founded the highly-acclaimed Southern California blues band, Blue By Nature. His musical style, while grounded in Blues and Americana traditions, cannot be defined by a single genre.  

Hostetler won “Best Singer/Songwriter” in 2019 from the LA Music Critic Awards and the Severn/FM-UK Blues Hour and Encyclopedia of Rock “Industry Award” in 2021.

Fred is a Goshen, Indiana native and graduate of Goshen College. Fred currently resides on Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest and looks forward to resume playing live this coming February.
