Tricia Freeman Band, Duo, Trio And Solo!Self-Taught Dynamo
Los Angeles, CA
Tricia Freeman 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. Tricia has shared the stage with Walter Trout, Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money, Al Green and John Fogarty at the Doheny Blues Festival at Dana Point, California. Although Ms. Freeman has been compared to the likes of Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad and Melissa Etheridge, she embodies the personality of the multi-talented Bette Midler. Tricia's bold, humorous stage presence will have you rolling with laughter between each song. 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.
