Freedom Hawk from Virginia

Artist History

This is the story behind the chemistry of Freedom Hawk. It started with T.R. and Mark in 1996, two guys that had been just playing their instruments by themselves. They met through a mutual friend who played music. For years they just goofed off, jamming with different drummers, but never got anything together. T.R. moved to Florida, but they both continued to play on their own with other musicians. T.R. moved back in 2000 and had a four track and they started to record their jams.

They met Lenny through a mutual friend in 2004 who had been in a ton of bands before they met. Lenny is a pure jam drummer who also clicked. He was interested in and liked the style of music they were playing; raw sloppy rock but they all felt the changes and knew which direction to go next. They continued for about a year, when Lenny wanted to put some structure to the jams and turn them into songs. T.R. wanted to fatten up the sound and add another guitarist. They found and played with a couple of guitarists but it didn't work out. That's when Mark's brother Matt came in 2005 and also clicked. Matt was an awesome lead guitarist, and was musically trained, which helped them further the sound. He was the final piece that made the band complete. They recorded a demo that tightened up four songs and showed them the way to tighten up the rest.

The first name they came up with was Down Green Well, which came from where they practiced. They played a few shows under that name but the band didn't want to keep it. T.R. didn't feel it represented the sound and changed it to Freedom Hawk without consulting band. It was supposed to change from Freedom Hawk to something else but never did. The band embraced the name and has continued to soar and attack the mainstream since day one!

The first show they played under the name Freedom Hawk was with Year Long Disaster and Throttlerod. Since the first show the band has not slowed down....putting out multiple EPs in 2006/2007(Universal & Self Titledand a full length (Sunlight) 2008. They continue to write new music and tour extensively. Most notably they have and continue to do Volcom tours, Surf/Skate/Snow Expos, and Festivals/Events all throughout the East Coast from NYC to Florida. They have shared the stage and toured with many great national/regional bands such as Year Long Disaster, Nebula, Totimoshi, Burning Brides, Beaten Back to Pure, Sourvein, ASG, Thunderlip, Revery, Throttlerod, Valkyrie and more...

Freedom Hawk prides itself on a high energy live up close and personal experience that makes fans want to feel and hear more. They have been quoted by Live Performer Magazine from a live show as the "East Coast's answer to Fu Manchu, keeping it simple and thick with harmonious metal groove. It wasn't heavy riffs and growls, but power riffs and soulful rock delivery wrapped in metal packaging.
Freedom Hawk's sound is large, like trying to force an elephant to fit in a closet. It is also melodic for such heavy handed playing. Walls of guitar riffs were pushed out heavy, soaring and moving like swells and waves at the same time."

They don't plan on slowing down anytime soon with a possible national tour in 2009 so look out for them in a town near you.
Hope you enjoy the RAWK and keep in touch!

"Sunlight" Reviewed by RadioIndy.com!
POSTED BY: EricLawrence POSTED ON: 21 Sep 2008 08:31 PM
“Sunlight” is the excellent full-length debut from Virginia hard rock outfit Freedom Hawk. This group is solid. Driven by powerful drum beats and excellently crafted guitar work, Freedom Hawk have composed nine exceptional hard rock tracks that dabble in metal and psychedelic and have a certain timeless quality to them. Attributing to this timelessness is the lead singer’s vocal performance. His melodic high-pitched vocals are reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne with traces of Robert Plant. The songs are a lot of fun, meant to be played loud, and will immediately have you either bobbing your head or using your lap as a drum kit. “Sunlight” is well-produced, clean and ready to boom out of a pair of speakers. The title track, “Sunlight,” is a fun track with a great rocking arrangement that gets your head bobbing and features some great drum and guitar work. “Going Down” is a stripped down track with a slow drum beat and minimal guitar work that displays the fantastic vocal capabilities of the lead singer. “Sunlight” takes us back to a time where making hard rock wasn’t about making a lot of noise but rather about making very good music. Freedom Hawk have crafted a gem, and fans of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and classic hard rock are going to want to pick this one up.
