Officially formed in the summer of 2017, this Dayton band has been tirelessly writing and performing original music around town. Their already released single “12 Bar Crawl” has been well received as it talks about 12 of the local Dayton bars.
Fans also hold dear Freight’s released cover of “My Funny Valentine”, which puts a funky twist on the 1937 jazz standard.
Being primarily categorized as rock, Freight incorporates aspects of funk and jazz into their music and are compared to the likens of Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Cake, with hints of the Beatles, Nirvana, and Gem City. This 5-piece band is composed of Matt Huntington on keys and vocals, Tim Schroeder on guitar and vocals, Ethan Steinmetz on guitar, Adam Knox on bass, and Matthew Stevenson on drums. Their album was recorded by Adam and Matthew at 14 Chambers Studios and produced by Adam.
Start The Night Off Easy is sure to be a hit, including favorites such as “12 Bar Crawl” and “Needle’s Eye”, as well as never before heard songs like “Waiting” and “Lies”. Fans have been tuned in to their Instagram and Facebook accounts @udfreight, eagerly awaiting news of the release.
