What The Media Is Saying About Tricia Freeman & Her New CD Everyone Can See “Everyone Can See”

Reflects all the paths Tricia has explored…”Thought You Was The One” is a funky blues number in the vein of Little Feat and Bonnie Raitt…”Time To Call A Friend” showcases Freeman’s vocal talents as well as her imaginative writing skills.” BMANS BLUES REPORT “You put this CD in a player, and lo and behold, you instantly have to be impressed…this voice jumps out from the speakers, and it has so much sass, so much grit, so much personality, that you instantly have to be sold. That’s how I felt when I first heard the voice of Tricia Freeman.” MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE

“One thing is readily apparent when you put this album on. This woman can sing. Her raspy vocals in “Thought You Was The One” not only remind me of Janis Joplin, but also are perfect for the blues she sings. Everyone Can See is an album you should add to your collection.” OC MUSIC EXAMINER

<Tricia Freeman Live In Concert At House Of Blues/Hollywood – Sat., May 12> (HOLLYWOOD, CA) – Check out one of the hardest-working ladies in the Southern California live music scene, Tricia Freeman, when she comes to the House of Blues, Crossroads Room, 8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, Saturday, May 12. 8-11 p.m. Free. Info: (323) 848-5100 or http://www.houseofblues.com/venues/clubvenues/losangeles/. The talented vocalist blends elements of rock, blues, country, and even soul in her repertoire, while gigging on average of five-six times a week with the Tricia Freeman Band. Freeman’s distinct gravelly-edged vocals have been favorably compared with both Bonnie Tyler and Bonnie Raitt. She is nominated for a 2012 Los Angeles Music Award in the “Best Blues/Americana/Roots” category and will be performing at the Real Blues Festival Of Orange County 3 later this Summer. Freeman has just released the well-received, independently-produced album, Everyone Can See. From the ballad-like “Blind Man Wandering” and Little Feat-esque rock ‘n’ funk feel of “Thought You Was the One” to the uptempo boogie-woogie urgency of “Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean” and the sexy jazz feel of the title track, the twelve-song record encompasses a myriad of sounds sure to satisfy. Listen closely and you’ll hear strains of The Motel’s Martha Davis in the lovely “Going Back” and Heart’s Ann Wilson in the equally serene “Let It Go” – both not bad company to be in, to be sure!

Raised in Kansas and Texas, Tricia’s earliest memories of music go back to her mother’s love of jazz and blues, flooding the house with the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and her favorite, Dinah Washington. Her father loved it all, from the Latin American to classical. As she started developing her own taste in music, she began to lean more to the local country/bluegrass sound mixed with a rockin’ blues flavor that was prevalent in her college town of Lawrence, Kansas. Tricia made the big move to California at the age of 19 and immediately bought a guitar and a “how to” chord book. The rest just came naturally, from singing those country / blues songs at the local saloons, to performing in the stage production of “Godspell”, to performing at all sizes of venues, from local taverns to major festivals up & down the coast. Freeman has toured Europe from Finland to Germany several times, with different line ups, performing songs from her own CD’s and a blend of cover tunes that she makes completely her own with her bold original sound, that can only come from living the songs she sings. Her studio work has brought her performance credits in 3 movies from Disney, Time Warner and Indigo Films. She also appeared on the television show, “Your Big Break”, paying tribute to Janis Joplin. Tricia traveled to Memphis several times to sing back up vocals on 2 CD’s of Walter Trout, the amazing blues guitarist from “Canned Heat”. While there, she had the honor of working with producer, Jim Gains, of Santana fame, as well as, many other bands. Besides Walter Trout, Tricia has also shared the stage with the likes of Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money and in 2007, she opened for Al Green & John Fogerty at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, California. Freeman has a bold, humorous stage presence that will have you rolling with laughter between songs. This is why being compared to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad, and Melissa Etheridge, among others, has been “trumped” with other fan’s and critic’s opinions that she is much more like the multi-talented Bette Midler. Indeed, Ms. Freeman has that “Midler” appeal. This singer/songwriter puts on a great show, no matter what size the venue or the audience. You will always get the “real thing” with Tricia Freeman.
