freese trio

freese trio are a triphop electronica grunge band whose compositions explore inner demons and difficult truths; through twisted lyricism and layered sounds they create a dark beauty. Audiences are taken on a journey of self-reflection through darkness, and back out into thelight, creating a mesmerising trance and encouraging the release of suppressed emotions. Their combination of hypnotic drum patterns, bold sub-bass riffs, dense eerie harmony and daring yet intricate vocals is what gives them their distinct sound.

freese trio received a place on Manchester Jazz Festival’s Hothouse scheme in 2018; performed at Manchester, Marsdenand Lancaster Jazz Festivals; supported artists including Yazmin Lacey and Szun Waves; in 2019 were awarded a place on Jazz North’s ‘northernline’scheme; received a place on the Music:Leeds Launchpad in 2019 and are set to play at Yellow Arch Studios (Sheffield), Peddlers Market (Sheffield), Cobalt Studios (Newcastle) and Night and Day Cafe (Manchester) by the end of 2019 and Matt and Phreds (Manchester) in 2020.

‘We love the frankness of Freese’ lyrics, and the band’s fresh yet unmistakable take on trip-hop. Freese’ voice calls to mind the likes of Kate Bush and even Bjork.’ – Michael Sandford from Pink Wafer on 'pleasure island'.

’...delves into inner demons and truths that allow the audience to be reflective and gives them space to experience vulnerability and 'Pleasure Island' certainly does this exceptionally well. Written in 5/4, the gurgling bass prods the song along superbly alongside the loose feel from the drums, as Freese's vocals cut through darkness confidently.’ - Ben Lee from Jazz Revelations on 'pleasure island'.

’It’s not going to be an easy listen for some of you, but it’s incredibly rewarding. I think it’s important that artists cover mental health issues in their music, many people are going to have conditions or know somebody that does, so it’s a universal subject. I applaud Jemma for tackling this important issue ..... Having not heard anything by freese trio before musically the tracks on this album impressed me hugely. It’s inventive, accomplished and brilliantly put together.’ - Frank Roper from Local Sound Focus on ‘the beast in the blueprint’
