Singer/Songwriter and New Orleans native, Jason Frilot, left his hometown in July of 2011 to pursue his dreams on an East Coast tour. The intentions of the tour did not go as planned, as he instantly fell in love with the Tampa Bay Area and decided to stay. Frilot played around the area and eventually found the perfect members for the band he envisioned. Kathy Roberts (percussionist), Rory Flaherty (lead guitarist), Mike DeGrande (drummer) and Jackson "JT" Turner (bassist) not only fit the bill as far as the sound he desired, but their passion and attitude fit the energy of what the music demanded. With influences of reggae, rock, folk, hip hop, and blues along side Frilot's positive lyrics, it was clear that Freelow was well on their way to spread the message of love. With over 30 original songs, Freelow rarely plays cover songs and stays true to the creation of their unique sound. Stay in touch with their progress and upcoming shows so that one day you too can witness the Freelow Music Experience.
