Touring group, Freekbass & The Bump Assembly features drummer, Rico Lewis (George Clinton), Sky White on keys (Foxy Shazam), and vocalist Sammi Garett (Turkuaz)
Freekbass has released seven albums to date, including his 2019 release on Eddie Robert’s label (The New Mastersounds), Color Red . Grammy Award winning songwriter, Itaal Shur, co-wrote several of the new tracks on the album, which also features Roberts, Garett, Lonnie “Meganut” Marshall, and the late, great, “Razor Sharp” Johnson. The album is a blend of the origins of funk with the new, and also a mix of regional influences under the guidance of Roberts as co-producer. In Cincinnati, one of the original hotbeds for funk music and home to James Brown label, King Records, Freekbass won the 2019 “Best Funk/R&B Band” at The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, his fifth time winning the award and ninth time nominated.
