"Live Review from Evos Arts, Lowell, MA - Feb 2005"

“Songs range from meaty rock to gritty blues to hard-driving jazz to the occasional foray into reggae/ska, and many points in between. One part Allman Brothers, one part Cream, one part Sublime, one part Pink Floyd, and many parts utterly unique…With delightfully catchy songs, intoxicating grooves, inventive melodies, and incredibly well synchronized jams…”

Bio

The music is diverse and doesn’t come with a catch-all title. Major aspects of the FreightTrain sound include classic, inventive songwriting, catchy melodies and lyrics; a backbone of
hard driving, Chicago blues; arena art rock notions in the tradition of Pink Floyd and Radiohead; and a jazz rhythm section laying down impossibly complex beats in an amazingly accessible and danceable way. And that’s just the originals. The live sets are a catalogue of over 50 covers: from the Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, Cream, Beatles to Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin and Pink Floyd.

Still only in their mid-twenties, the members of FreightTrain exude a fresh and immediate energy on stage. They mix roots elements with a brand new feel and flow. Fearless experimentation seamlessly intertwines their well constructed songs. FreightTrain is an uplifting mix of talent, soul, and energy. The fanbase they’ve been building through live performances and word of mouth alone are a diverse group that can be summarized by saying only that these are people who really, really dig music. Many are musicians themselves. They seem to be drawn to the band because FreightTrain makes undeniably great music in a live setting.
