THIS WEEK ON SOUND ADVICE JUNE 14TH
THIS WEEK ON THE SOUND ADVICE SHOW WE HAVE A VERY SPECIAL GUEST…..
THE ONE AND ONLY “FREEBO” LONG TIME BASSIST FOR BONNIE RAITT….
NOW FREEBO IS DOING HIS OWN MUSIC AND WE WILL BE TALKING TO HIM ABOUT WHAT HE HAS DONE AND WHAT HE HAS PLANED FOR THE FUTURE…. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED TO HAVE HIM ON THE SHOW…. TUNE IN EARLY….
For 30 years, Freebo played bass on recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time–people like Bonnie Raitt (10 years), John Mayall, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Loudon Wainwright, Dr. John, and many others.
Yearning for more creative expression, however, he began a process of deep inner discovery and has now evolved into an award-winning singer/songwriter, having won The 2008 Posi Award for Best Song in The Most Uniting Category, The ’07 Los Angeles Music Awards Best Folk Artist, and The ’07 South Florida Songwriting Contest, as well as being nominated in 5 categories in the JPF Awards with two songs in the top 10 of the USA Songwriting Contest.
The Philadelphia Inquirer said of Freebo’s latest CD, “Before the Separation flows with a compassionate spirit rooted in 60’s ideals, packs a gently urgent relevancy, and is delivered with engaging earnestness.”
Freebo’s songs embrace stylistic elements from all the many musical genres he has played throughout his career, but they are uniquely his own. And in his live shows, performed on acoustic guitar, Freebo creates a unique, intimate, and inclusive atmosphere with his audience.
