Yawning Man, who hail from the arid desert area of Southern California, have been playing, jamming, and recording since 1986, and are a highly influential band. Most of their fans and those heavily influenced by them consider them to be ‘the originators’ of the entire “Desert Rock” movement/genre.
Influenced by everything from the psychedelic to the folkloric, jazz, hard rock, roots punk, world music, the sound of this trio while hard to describe is visual and cinamatic , heavy and melancholy. driving & daydreaming.
Emanating from the barrier dunes of Virginia, Freedom Hawk’s weighted riffs, rolling groove, soulful guitar melodies, and harmonic metal packaging produce a sound distinctly their own. The quartet’s brand of rock captures the best of the heavy ‘70s with touches of early-‘80s metal and is inspired by experiences that could only come from living close to the ocean. Their songs speak to a lifestyle that conjures images of the warm sun, a day of surfing, and partying on the beach. There are far worse ways to spend an afternoon.
