Alice Howe Trio

September 27 7:00 pm PDT

Second Stage

Doors Open: 6:30 pm

$15.00

Fresh off her recording session at iconic FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, singer and songwriter Alice Howe brings her soulful, impeccably-tuned voice and crafted poetry back to Los Angeles for a trio performance at the Hotel Cafe. She will be supported by her producer and musical partner, former long-time Bonnie Raitt bassist Freebo and drummer MB Gordy.

Alice has been marked as one to watch since the release of her 2017 EP You’ve Been Away So Long. The record debuted on the Folk Radio Charts with a #1 Most Played song, “Homeland Blues,” firmly establishing her as a rising voice in American Roots music. In 2019, Alice released Visions, a modern love letter to 60s and 70s folk and timeless blues, garnering critical acclaim from gatekeepers such as Billboard and local press alike. Her forthcoming album, Circumstance, recorded in Muscle Shoals and due out in April 2023, is a collection of ten new original songs produced by Freebo and backed by a world-class band.

 

Freebo

 Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, & many more) is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today. 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.

Freebo’s 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. He will take an audience from insights about what kind of positive mark we hope to leave on the world upon our own passing with “Standing Ovation” to where you stand with your pets and your partner with “She Loves My Dog More Than Me.” A musical evening with Freebo will be astute, insightful, clever, and truly melodic.

  Here’s what critics are saying about Freebo:

“Freebo’s intimate and go-down-easy personable vocals tie in light-hearted fare, social commentary and spiritual quest with love-sweet-love, and make it sound seamless.” (Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville)

“Standing Ovation is an astounding song which encompasses a profound view of life, destined to become a classic.” (Russ Paris, Folkworks.org)

“Listening to Freebo is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness, a cosmic blend of folk/country/rock/soul ear-pleasing genre-defying music.” (Walt Falconer, Cool Album Of The Day)

“Freebo sounds as if he’s not really singing to you; he’s talking to you. One of the best albums of the year.” (John Shelton Ivany, jsitop21.com)
