“Listeners who appreciated Delaney & Bonnie in the ’70s — or who enjoy the Tedeschi Trucks Band today — will find a similarly eclectic and soulful mindset at work in the music of The Freeway Revival.”
Dedicated song crafting has always been the cornerstone of The Freeway Revival. Being a group composed of multiple soulful song-writers as well as a brotherhood forged on the road, they continue to use their lyrics and powerful vocal harmonies as a window into the human experience and the life of a traveling band on the current American landscape. Their refreshing and explosive blend of psychedelic southern rock, gospel roots, mountain music, funk and soul translates into a genre-dissolving sound that feels strangely familiar yet remains entirely unique to itself.
"A well-written, superbly played collection, the album displays the group’s distinctive character... Listeners who appreciated Delaney & Bonnie in the ’70s — or who enjoy the Tedeschi Trucks Band today — will find a similarly eclectic and soulful mindset at work in the music of The Freeway Revival... If Spin Doctors had written less gimmicky tunes with stronger melodies back in the ’90s, they might have sounded a bit like The Freeway Revival... Armed with its unique set of assets, The Freeway Revival seems poised for wider recognition."

"As one listens to Asheville-based The Freeway Revival.. you’re gonna hear a little bit of everything we’ve grown up with–the Allmans, Garcia-era Dead, Dylan, on up thru the likes of Gov’t Mule, the CRB, and Tedeschi-Trucks on today’s scene. We don’t want to call them “Southern rock,” because, although they have Southern roots, this music is much, much more... Their incredible musicianship, collaborative songwriting and spot-on harmony arrangements make this set special."

"The Freeway Revival is a five-piece roots rock band from Asheville, NC, that prides itself on powerful lyrics and harmonies often lost in the larger jam scene. Their first full length release, the 11-track "Revolution Road," is a high-energy infusion of ripping blues licks, funky keyboard trills, smooth, welcoming vocals, and poignant stories perfectly accented by unique and impressive instrumentation... "Sense of Wonder" and "Angel in Rymes" echo early String Cheese in a way that is fresh and innovative, but also familiar and exciting to hear again."
