Dedicated song crafting has always been the cornerstone of The Freeway Jubilee. A collective of multiple song-writers formed in Asheville in 2015, the group has maintained a heavy tour schedule since their inception and forged a true brotherhood on the road. Always striving to evoke an emotional experience in their listeners, the band continues to shape their lyrics and powerful vocal harmonies towards the human condition, inspired by the real life experiences of a traveling band on the current American landscape. Their refreshing, explosive blend of gospel-tinged rock and hard-driving soulful grooves, met with a flare of psychedelic mountain music, translates into a genre-dissolving sound that feels strangely familiar yet remains entirely unique to itself.
Formerly dubbed 'The Freeway Revival', the group has been turning heads all over the east coast with their energetic sound, continually growing a dedicated grassroots fan base. Among other renowned east coast venues, Freeway has performed at music festivals like Floyd Fest, Front Porch Fest, and Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival to name a few. They have shared the stage with artists like Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson, Melvin Seals, Larry Keel, 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 the addition of Hunter Parker on saxophone (formerly of Psylo Joe), the band stepped into a bigger and bolder sound in early 2019, evolving into what is now The Freeway Jubilee.
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 melodic harmonies, vibrant vocal harmonies, sultry saxophone riffs, and an eclectic assortment of organ/piano arrangements creates a soundscape that is both musically intricate and soulfully energetic. Rest that on the groove of a unique and driving 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'.
