What The Press Is Saying About Tricia Freeman's New CD, "Everyone Can See"

(Tricia Freeman performs at the Real Blues Festival Of Orange County 3, presented by the Orange County Blues Society, Sunday, August 26 at Malone's in Santa Ana).

What The Media Is Saying About Tricia Freeman & Her New CD Everyone Can See

" What a strong, wailing, gut-bucket blues-rock voice Tricia Freeman has,and her producer provides it plenty of space to roam on"Thought You Was The One." Freeman's rich vocals are perhaps captured best on "Help Me," as is her sensitive support group and deft arrangement. High or low, her singing is terrific (8.6 out of 10)."


"As Tricia Freeman brings her big voice and country blues presence into the studio for this session, you can feel the excitement moving all around her. She's been compared to Janis Joplin for good reason. Her vocal refrains stand out for the power that she drives throughout this program. "Ashes To Ashes" promises a touch of gospel passion, "Thought You Was The One" spells pure country blues, "You'll Fall In Love With Me" evokes a hard-rockin' drive, "Time To Call A Friend" wallows in country pride, and Freeman's title track swings with a mellow timbre from the past. With this well-rounded, eclectic program, the singer and band provide a little something for everyone. She tells the stories and the band answers with understanding punctuation. Freeman sings 'em loud and clear with genuine passion and convinces her audience with every bar."

"Critic's Choice goes to "You'll Fall In Love With Me." How could any man not fall in love with a lady who gives it this much effort? Country-folk song "Going Back" and the ballad "Let it Go" are two more songs that demonstrate Freeman's vocal prowess." L.A. EXAMINER

"I received a copy of Tricia Freeman's brand spankin' new CD, Everyone Can See, and I immediately fell in love with it. Her voice is an audio holograph of the most iconic females in the history of rock. Tremendous women such as Janis Joplin, Bonnie Bramlett, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, and Melissa Etheridge all come to mind when listening to Freeman. And yet, the sound coming out of her mouth is distinctively her own. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

this album and am really looking forward to following Tricia Freeman's career for many years to come." BOOMEROCITY

"Has a nice way of blending familiar voices like Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge and making her own sound. This album is definitely a showcase for her strong voice."


"Strong, raspy voice with Joplin-esque qualities...when Freeman cuts loose the sass and the band starts to cook, she shows the potential to be an artist to be reckoned with in the future. Just when you figure out that Ms. Freeman likes to rock the Blues, she turns into a sultry vamp on the jazzy 'Everyone Can See.' Best is yet to come."


"Everyone Can See" reflects all the paths Tricia has explored..."Thought You Was The One" is a funky blues number in the vein of Little Feat and Bonnie Raitt..."Time To Call A Friend" showcases Freeman's vocal talents as well as her imaginative writing skills." BMANS BLUES REPORT

"You put this CD in a player, and lo and behold, you instantly have to be impressed...this voice jumps out from the speakers, and it has so much sass, so much grit, so much personality, that you instantly have to be sold. That's how I felt when I first heard the voice of Tricia Freeman." MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE

"One thing is readily apparent when you put this album on. This woman can sing. Her raspy vocals in "Thought You Was The One" not only remind me of Janis Joplin, but also are perfect for the blues she sings. Everyone Can See is an album you should add to your collection." OC MUSIC EXAMINER

Tricia Freeman - Bio

Raised in Kansas and Texas, Tricia's earliest memories of music go back to her mother's love of jazz and blues, flooding the house with the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and her favorite, Dinah Washington. Her father loved it all, from the Latin American to classical.

As she started developing her own taste in music, she began to lean more to the local country/bluegrass sound mixed with a rockin' blues flavor that was prevalent in her college town of Lawrence, Kansas.

Tricia 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.

Freeman has toured Europe from Finland to Germany several times, with different line ups, performing songs from her own CD's and a blend of cover tunes that she makes completely her own with her bold original sound, that can only come from living the songs she sings.

Her studio work has brought her performance credits in 3 movies from Disney, Time Warner and Indigo Films. She also appeared on the television show, "Your Big Break", paying tribute to Janis Joplin.

Tricia traveled to Memphis several times to sing back up vocals on 2 CD's of Walter Trout, the amazing blues guitarist from "Canned Heat". While there, she had the honor of working with producer, Jim Gains, of Santana fame, as well as, many other bands.

Besides Walter Trout, Tricia has also shared the stage with the likes of Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money and in 2007, she opened for Al Green & John Fogerty at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, California.

Freeman has a bold, humorous stage presence that will have you rolling with laughter between songs. This is why being compared to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad, and Melissa Etheridge, among others, has been "trumped" with other fan's and critic's opinions that she is much more like the multi-talented Bette Midler. Indeed, Ms. Freeman has that "Midler" appeal.

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.
