New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Jeremy Fetzer, known as one half of the Nashville-based instrumental duo Steelism, launched a new instrumental label Fetzicon that will be distributed via Thirty Tigers. The label's debut release is Jeremy Fetzer's first solo single "Mendocino" that features Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Duane Eddy, an 18-piece studio orchestra recorded in Lisbon, Portugal and members of Steelism. The song will be released digitally as well as a limited edition pressing of 200 7-inch vinyl singles featuring an exclusive B-side mono mix and gold-stamp numbered jackets.
100% of vinyl sales in April will be directed towards Hands on Nashville and MusiCares for Nashville Tornado Relief and Covid-19 Relief.
"I was introduced to Duane and his wife Deed back in 2012 at a Sirius Radio event in downtown Nashville where I performed with Caitlin Rose and Spencer Cullum. They couldn't have been kinder," explains Fetzer. "I took a chance years later - I had the basic melody theme and band arrangement of 'Mendocino' and kept hearing a Duane Eddy-esque guitar sound playing the lead. Steelism studio collaborator Charlie McCoy gave me Duane's contact. It's been an incredible experience getting to know Duane during this recording process - he has incredible rock and roll stories for days. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Kinks… these bands were all inspired by Duane Eddy, and we're so lucky to have him around and here in Nashville."

Jeremy Fetzer is a 32-year-old, Nashville-based/Canton, Ohio-bred guitarist and instrumental music composer. Fetzer is co-founder and one-half of instrumental outfit Steelism, whose 2014's 615 to FAME and 2017's ism received critical acclaim from NPR, Billboard, and Rolling Stone. Steelism has performed on stages such as Newport Folk Festival, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. Fetzer has worked in the studio and on the stage with diverse artists including Kesha, Lambchop, Andrew Combs, Caitlin Rose, Ruby Amanfu, and Jessie Baylin.

In recent years, Fetzer has also started a graphic design company, Fetzer Design, that specializes in album art and has worked on Grammy-Award winning and Grammy-nominated projects for Jason Isbell, Boz Scaggs, Delbert McClinton and Bobby Rush.

An EP to follow, Phases, will be the second release on Fetzicon/Thirty Tigers and available in June. Phases strings together four original instrumentals with guitar and analog synthesizer melodies weaving together over hypnotic, cinematic landscapes. The EP was inspired by film scores of Jonny Greenwood, Brian Eno's Apollo, and Brazilian composer AntĂ´nio Jobim.
