DG and the Freetown Sound


Genre:Vintage Soul/RocknRoll
Lafayette’s local 8 piece offers a full soul sound! Hailing from the heart of the Hub City, DG & the Freetown Sound brings their heavy influence of vintage soul/ southern soul together with high energy blues rock n roll.
Their original songs are stacked with big horn hits and dancing electric guitars. The upbeat rhythms meld punching drum grooves and thumping bass, keeping audiences on their feet. With organ beaming in the background, front man and songwriter Dustin Gaspard, delivers sporadic Van Morrison-eque melodies and an undeniable energetic feeling. Through their music a lost conviction is displayed, and for each performance the encouraging thought for listeners to “dance like no one is watching.”
2018 saw horn composer/ keyboardist and former New Yorker Joshua Lazo added to the band, aiding in the leg work of arranging the soulful horn textures and organ layers reminiscent of the Vintage blues soul sound.
Debut single “Shoulders” is a RocknSoul anthem praising the sounds of the past and focusing on the community of song. While a choir sings “ I’LL BE THE SHOULDER YOU CAN LEAN ON!” the refrain offers a helping hand and a catchy reminder to celebrate, to sing and to dance alongside the Freetown Sound. Look forward to hearing their debut album “Microphone Inheritance” set to release at the beginning of 2019!
S’unissant au cœur du Hub City, DG & The Freetown Sound est le groupe Vintage Soul Blues de Lafayette. Fusionnant le rock’n’roll à haute énergie avec des arrangements des grands groupes vintage, The Freetown Sound apporte un nouveau souffle à l’esprit soul old school. Influencé par des artistes blues/soul des années 50, 60 et 70, le chanteur Dustin Gaspard livre des mélodies charismatiques et des chœurs gospel hurlants tout au long de chaque chanson originale. The Freetown Sound séduira tous les publics de danseurs tout en prêchant l’affirmation “Rock N Soul” à chaque représentation live.
