For 30 years, Freebo played bass on recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time–people like Bonnie Raitt (10 years), John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Neil Young, Loudon Wainwright III, Dr. John, and many others. He has also appeared on Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, Muppets Tonight, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. It was his yearning for more creative expression, however, that drove Freebo to begin a process of deep inner discovery, and this has led to his successful transition as a singer/songwriter.
Freebo’s latest album is “Something to Believe”. The collection starts with “Standing Ovation” which could be the highlight of the album. This song represents how Freebo wants to be remembered at his own funeral. Today we will be playing some of the songs from this album.
Cornflower is a vocal-instrumentalist who lives for the moment. His music is a mix of many styles and genres, yet it is unique and is too elusive to label. Most importantly, his music has a purpose... like a time capsule from the future, here to help bridge the gap between our world and what is to come.
Cornflower's music emerges intuitively through an 'accapella scat' that is very familiar and tribalistic. He uses 'vocal-percussion' aka Beat-boxing that is not meant for spectacle but to serve as a foundation to his soaring melodies and atmospheric sound effects that bring a depth and richness to the sound wanting to be birthed. Last, but not least, he uses a Loop station that allows him to layer these many vocal-instrumentations into a symphony that if your eyes were closed, you wouldn't believe it was being created solely using his mouth.
Cornflower has collaborated and appeared with many artists, musicians & luminaries including: Bobby McFerrin, Victor Wooten, Kenny Loggins, Jeff Pevar, Chris Deckker, Wisdom, Dubconscious, Freebo, Scott Huckabay, Bohemian Soul, The Rogue Suspects, James Twyman, Elemental Harmonics, Phillip Daniel, Amy Steinberg, +Elijah- & the Band of Light, K.J. and Quetzatl.
Cornflower has studied with ten-time Grammy Winner, Bobby McFerrin and was a guest leader at the annual 12-hour Circlesinging event called “Singing for your Life 2005” with members of SoVoSo.
Cornflower creates memorable musical grooves and inspirational mantras that lift you up while getting down!
