Founded by brothers Chad Hadersbeck and Joe Schliewe, their self-recorded first album was written and tested at open mics in the Deep Ellum area of Dallas, TX. Every Tuesday night, they got together with talented musicians and shared drinks, laughs and music. It was always a good night at the Free Man Cajun Cafe. Hence the name, Goodnight Freeman. Eventually the mountains called their name and the boys packed up and moved to Denver, CO.
In Denver, they added Colorado native and veteran to the Denver music scene, Jason Spillman on bass. Jason brought in a former bandmate, Brian Rempel, to man the drums. In early 2017, Chris Christofferson joined on keys, filling out the powerful Goodnight Freeman sound. They are currently in studio recording their first professional album.
