Dedicated song crafting has always been the cornerstone of The Freeway Revival. A group forged on the road, they continue to use their lyrics as a window into the life of a traveling band on the current American landscape. The Freeway Revival’s refreshing and explosive blend of rock, blues, country, funk and soul translates to a genre-dissolving sound that feels strangely familiar yet remains entirely unique to itself.
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 vocal harmonies, and a unique assortment of piano/organ melodies creates a soundscape that is both intricate and 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.
The band has toured the U.S. coast to coast as well as internationally, continually growing a dedicated grassroots fan base. After the successful release of their self-titled 2016 EP they are poised to release their first full length album, Revolution Road, in Summer of 2017. With multiple festivals and tours on the horizon, the Freeway’s journey is ongoing and exponential as they allow the livelihood of what they do to shape their sound and experience.
