The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.
Fort Frances (Record Release)

Chicago, IL 60614
At first glance, you probably wouldn’t know that Fort Frances is an independent band.
Bands that do it all on their own aren’t typically the first to earn the praise of national radio outlets, prominent TV personalities and respected bloggers alike. They aren’t often the ones at the top of the “Bands You Need to Know Right Now” lists. You might not expect them to be turning heads at festivals across the country and earning comparisons to artists like Wilco, Ryan Adams and Modest Mouse.
But this trio from Chicago has managed to check all these to-dos off their list while remaining independent in every sense of the word. They produce their own records. They book their own shows. They write their own expectations. In an uncertain music business, the band is making sure that they can continue to make music with heart on their own terms.
Still, independence comes with a price tag. This sense of self-control can chip away at the most important element of any band: their ability to create. When the touring miles get longer and the business decisions get bigger, the songs somehow find their way into the backseat.
