Freeway Revival LIVE @ Ambrose West 11-30-2018
Dedicated song crafting has always been the cornerstone of The Freeway Revival. Being a group composed of multiple soulful song-writers as well as a brotherhood forged on the road, they continue to use their lyrics and powerful vocal harmonies as a window into the human experience and the life of a traveling band on the current American landscape. Their refreshing and explosive blend of psychedelic southern rock, gospel roots, mountain music, funk and soul translates into a genre-dissolving sound that feels strangely familiar yet remains entirely unique to itself.
Touring heavily since their inception in 2015, Freeway Revival has been turning heads all over the east coast with their energetic sound, continually growing a dedicated grassroots fan base. They have shared the stage with artists like Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson, Melvin Seals, Everyone Orchestra, Big Something, Zach Deputy, Keller Williams, Toubab Krewe, Dangermuffin and many other great national and regional artists. After the successful release of their 2016 self-titled EP, The Freeway Revival burst onto the scene in the fall of 2017 with their heavy hitting debut album “Revolution Road”, which appeared as #20 on Jambands.com National Radio Charts. Joining the roster of the Homegrown Music Network in 2018, Freeway continues to show relentless work ethic and a prolific sense of creativity. With a sophomore album slated for release in 2019, the band seems poised for wider recognition.
Performing live, The Freeway balances organized, well-crafted tunes with a jam ethos that lends a raw and explorative power to the music. The blend of tasteful guitar harmonies, vibrant four-part vocal harmonies, and a unique assortment of organ and piano melodies creates a soundscape that is both musically intricate and soulfully energetic. Rest that on the groove of a solid rhythm section, and you are sure to feel the magnetic force of this band! Each member plays a vital role in making the live experience unforgettable, and the journey is ongoing and exponential as the group allows the livelihood of what they do to shape their sound and experience – thus forming their mantra ‘Live the Freeway’.
