“Think Medeski Martin and Wood but about 20 years younger,” writes ShowTheShow in regards to Organ Freeman​, an organ trio hailing from Los Angeles, CA. Made up of Rob Humphreys (drums), Erik Carlson ​(guitar) and Trevor Steer (organ/keys), the group is already playing alongside bands The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Turkuaz and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, while booking slots on festivals like Fool’s Paradise, Brooklyn Comes Alive, Summer Camp Music Festival, Susquehanna Breakdown, Canyon Jam and more. The band is gearing up to release their second studio album, Respect My Art​, due out Tuesday, September 12th. This record leads the band in a new direction, as they meld EDM electronics with traditional organ trio instrumentation, to create something new and unique. For the coming record, Organ Freeman ventured outside of the drums-keys-guitar lineup and enlisted some heavy hitters to join in on the magic. They invited Theo Katzman​, guitarist of Vulfpeck​, as well as Dave Brandwein​, guitarist of Turkuaz​, alongside bassist Sean Hurley (Vertical Horizon), trumpet player Sean Billings (Jungle Fire), alto saxophonist Woody Mankowski (The Muller’s Wheel) and tenor saxophonist Jesse McGinty to fill out some of the tracks, delving deeper into previously uncharted territory for the band. “Organ Freeman, a jazztastic, high-octane funk fusion trio from L.A., is one of the most riveting acts in awhile,” asserts The News-Gazette, after catching a live set at this past Summer Camp Music Festival, while Live For Live Music, declares “Organ Freeman is the funk of the future...they sound like a combination of Soulive and The New Mastersounds, with a dash of Vulfpeck thrown in for good measure.”
