A songwriter for 9 years, Freeman has lived in many places throughout his life including England, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. Moving from place to place caused him to explore a wide breadth of cultures and influenced him artistically. This breadth of experience was implemented into his music at an early age, and lead to experimentation with different genres such as folk, rock, punk, indie, and electronic. Freeman eventually found a voice and a home in Boston, Massachusetts, where the Covey project was born.
Ultimately influenced by a wide variety of genres, Covey’s sound has a distinct personality. Folky lyrical driven songwriting is complimented by textures of synth and distorted guitar. As described by Sound of Boston, the vocals are “relaxed, natural, and infectiously uplifting”. Musical influences range from artists such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Nick Drake, and Blink-182.
Covey has been featured on the BIRN radio network, and online publications such as Under The Gun Review, and Allston Pudding. Their premier track “Comes and Goes” has won BostInno’s “Song of the Week”, “New England Band of the Month” feature on Deli Magazine, and was recently featured in a national Expedia commercial.
Only in its third year, Covey has opened for national touring artists such as Hoizer, The Last Bison, High As A Kite, Gabriel Kahane, Vagabon, Soak and has played across the Northeast. Look for Covey’s debut album this fall on Spotify, Bandcamp, and iTunes.
