With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice, Alice Howe is “up there with the very best of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters and Dar Williams” (Folking.com).

A multi award winner and finalist in numerous songwriting contests, Freebo was also recognized as the 'Best Folk Artist 2007' by the Los Angeles Music Awards. In addition, he has appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show, The Midnight Special, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap.
With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston singer-songwriter Alice Howe is “at once of the moment and timeless, personal and universal” (Mark Walton, Americana UK). Her pure yet versatile sound testifies to a musical sensibility rooted in '70s folk, blues, and Southern California singer-songwriters. A Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist, Alice debuted on the April 2017 Folk-DJ Chart with a #1 song, "Homeland Blues," from her EP You've Been Away So Long.
