Singer and songwriter Alice Howe is a rising voice in American Roots music. With her soulful, impeccably tuned vocals and crafted poetry, Alice has been marked as one to watch since the release of her 2017 EP You’ve Been Away So Long. To hear Alice Howe sing is to be enraptured by the natural, unaffected beauty of her voice. There’s no artifice, no histrionics — just honest, authentic, emotionally resonant singing in the tradition of the roots music that shaped her. In 2019, Alice released Visions. Produced by Freebo, it is a modern love letter to 60’s and 70’s folk and timeless blues. Her newest album, Circumstance, recorded in Muscle Shoals, is a collection of new original songs produced and arranged by Freebo and backed by a world-class band.

Freebo is a folk, rock and blues icon who first came to national prominence as Bonnie Raitt’s bass player for 10 years beginning in 1971. For over 30 years, he played bass on classic recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time including John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers; CSN; Maria Muldaur; Ringo Starr; Michelle Shocked, Neil Young; Loudon Wainwright III; Dr. John, and many others. He has also appeared on Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, Muppets Tonight, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. Not willing to rest on those achievements, Freebo delved more deeply into his creativity and has become a highly regarded singer/songwriter, now working on his 6th full-length solo CD. A multi award winner and finalist in numerous songwriting contests, Freebo was also recognized as the ‘Best Folk Artist 2007’ by the Los Angeles Music Awards. In addition, he has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show, The Midnight Special, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. His compassionate concern for the world and people around him, as evidenced both in his lyrics and his open stage banter, has helped him connect with listeners worldwide.
The dynamic between Howe and Freebo is seamless… Freebo’s bass work was always interesting and unexpected, while Howe contributed well-controlled vocals that shined over the top of every song, paired with her melodic guitar lines. — musicconnection.com
