Over the course of his career, singer/songwriter and Americana artist Tom Freund has released more than a dozen records, collaborated with legends such as Elvis Costello and Jackson Browne, pulled a half-decade stint on bass for alt-country pioneers The Silos, and has shared bills with everyone from Matthew Sweet to Guided by Voices. Freund's intimate, heartfelt new solo album, East of Lincoln, chronicles a personal journey along the path form self doubt to enlightenment. "Time to take the whole and turn this thing around?Time to make a deal and see what's going down", he affirms on "Runaround". Freund takes his time and lets these new songs simmer, and that-along with memorable guest spots from longtime friend and collaborator Ben Harper and an all-star cast of session players-is a big part of the record's charm. In many ways. Freund's entire life and career have been leading up to this moment. He's spent much of his time traversing genres, melding whatever sounds have happened to catch his whimsy with his unmistakable, earthbound songwriting. Tom will be joined by world renown musicians Wally Ingram, Ben Peeler, and Ethan Peeler. Local up and coming singer/songwriter with an incredible voice Mikayla Sullivan opens the show.
