Cincinnati’s own Freekbass leaves tomorrow to participate in the London Bass Guitar show and Cincy Groove is lucky enough to be receiving updates from Freekbass himself on his experience on the other side of the ocean. Be sure to keep checking back.
See the one and only Freekbass LIVE at the London Bass Guitar Show. Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, Freekbass takes his inspiration from the likes of Zapp and Midnight Star to produce rich, bottom-heavy bass riffs.
After working in a music shop to pay off his first electric bass he had in lay-away, the young Freekbass began to study the classics of Larry Graham, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament and Bootsy with a bass in one hand, and an MPC2000 in the other.
Since then, Freekbass has released five full-length CDs, including the current “Concentrate” featuring a stellar guestlist with Bootsy Collins, DJ Spooky, Adam Deitch, and Steve Molitz. Read more
