FREEDOM has been a favorite at festivals for many years. In addition how celebrated Freedom and his music is, the other members of his previous incarnation comprising “Freedom Tribe” have included Sasha Butterfly, Tina Malia, Al Torre and Stephen Roush have all gone on to create other well-loved musical projects! You never know who might step in and join Freedom and with every configuration of his band Freedom brings it with potent medicine, transformation and a clear dimension of liberation and an experiential glimpse of how “we resurrect Eden lost with every song that we sung!”
Freedom: Songwriter. Born in the Northland. Here to Raise the Vibration. We could give you a typical bio, drop names and tell you who he has played with and where. Let’s just skip that part. Freedom’s Music is Medicine. Truly Undefinable. Full with Beautiful Potent Poetry of True Substance and Relevance. Ringing an Ancient Bell and Invoking Spirit Presence. Freedom is Good for your Soul. Be Here and Hear for Yourself.
Folkgoddess Diane Patterson sings the world awake with strong voice, rocking guitar, sweet ukulele, and revolutionary lyrics.
Her sincere spirit and wild heart joyfully plant seeds of love and light in every listener.
Diane’s been performing at festivals and venues since 1989, beginning with a season playing electric bass for the excellent Sacramento, California-based Blues Duo; then co-fronting a world beat band in Davis called The Heat from 1989-1991. She started in 1993, with Joe Kojima Gray and Dave Theno, the award-winning Diane Patterson Sextet, with Jan Peters and two percussionists, Warren Jones and Rita Hosking . . . yes, THE Rita Hosking! Following The Sextet have been 20 years of solo, duo, and trio work, often with Al Torre on guitar.
Currently Diane is touring her fabulous new CD, Teach, Inspire, Be Real!! This album is a powerful collection of producers, songs, & healing vibrations!! Patterson has also published three other full length CDs: Build a Bridge (2013), World Awake (2010) and Hip the Hip (2005). In the works is an album with producer Mike Napolitano in New Orleans!
