To hear Alice Howe sing is to be enraptured by her voice’s natural, unaffected beauty. There’s no artifice, no histrionics — just honest, authentic, emotionally resonant singing in the tradition of the roots music that shaped her.

On her second and latest album, Circumstance, the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter-guitarist displays her vocal prowess and introspective writing in abundance, having mined her heart and her musical tastes for a deep, personal journey across an Americana soundscape dotted with blues, folk, country, soul and rock.

Recorded in two sessions at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, (where Etta James and Wilson Pickett once shook the wall), the record channels their spirits with 11 stirring tracks that pull no punches diving into the vagaries of the heart and Alice’s personal journey. As an old soul inside a 30-something millennial, Alice puts her stamp on Americana’s venerable strands 10 standout originals evoking both the classic singer-songwriters and the seminal music that once filled airwaves, roadhouses, and juke joints.

Freebo is best known for his decade of touring and recording with Bonnie Raitt, and has distinguished himself as one of the great bassists of our time. He has played on records with CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, and Neil Young, as well as appearing on Saturday Night Live, The Midnight Special, The Muppet Show, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap.

A multi-award winner and finalist in numerous songwriting contests, Freebo’s music reflects his compassionate concern for the world and people around him; his lyrics and open-stage banter have helped him connect with listeners worldwide. A live musical experience with Freebo is astute, insightful, clever, and truly melodic.

Alice Howe and Freebo present a unique study in contrasts, bringing together a rising voice in Americana music and a venerable rock, folk, and blues icon. Each a compelling performer in their own right, they both lead and support each other in their well-crafted songs with flawless harmonies and tasteful instrumentation.
