About the Bands:
Freddy Jones Band
Freddy Jones Band is one of America’s premier roots rock bands (and no, none of the members are actually named Freddy Jones). Freddy Jones Band is fronted by founding member and guitarist Marty Lloyd who plays alongside longtime member/bassist Rich Ross. The lineup rounds out with veteran musician Goose LaPoint- drummer. Freddy Jones Band is best known for their number one hits including “In a Daydream” and “One World”. ”Never Change” is brand new music produced by three-time Grammy-winning producer Justin Niebank. Neibank says, “Never Change is the best record I’ve worked on in years!” Since the release of “Never Change” Freddy Jones Band has been touring relentlessly and is coming to a venue near you. Currently, the Freddy Jones Band is working on new music to be released soon.
Raised in Chicago by a radical economist and a social worker, Baiman was surrounded by social justice issues her entire life. “If I wanted to rebel against my parents I could have become a finance banker or a corporate lawyer” she says of her childhood. While her classmates went to church or temple on Sunday mornings, Baiman attended the Ethical Humanist Society of Greater Chicago, a non-religious community formed around discussions of morality and current events. “That was always a tough one to explain at school” she says with a laugh. As a teenager, Baiman found music to be a welcome escape from worrying about global politics. “I often found the constant discussion of seemingly unsolvable problems to be intense and overwhelming, and when I moved to Nashville to pursue music it felt like something positive, beautiful and productive that I could put into the world. Now that I’ve had some years to devote to music,”—Baiman has been recording and touring internationally for the past 4 years with 10 String Symphony, and has played fiddle for numerous other artists including Kacey Musgraves and Winnipeg folk band Oh My Darling—“I find it hard to escape from the values that I grew up with, and I feel compelled to write politically, to speak out about things that I’ve experienced or seen. Songwriting is a unique opportunity to do that, because it avails a more emotional vehicle for discussion. I love the political tradition of folk music, from Woody Guthrie to Tupac, and my hope is that this record adds another voice to it.”
