GENRE:  Reggae - American Southern Soul


The Freecoasters create a fresh and original sound by infusing the best of American southern soul with infectious reggae and rocksteady rhythms.  From the beginning, The Freecoasters were designed to be a kind of anachronism: the Muscle Shoals Swampers tasked with a reggae record,  Mavis Staples recording down at Studio One. The Freecoasters take that sound that never was and bring it to life. The result sounds kinda familiar, but it’s truly something you’ve never heard before.


The Freecoasters full-length album, “Show Up,” released in 2016, was produced by renowned recording artist Jesse Wagner (The Aggrolites) and has received acclaim and praise both nationally and internationally.


Formed in 2014, The Freecoasters have since played more than 250 shows — 4-hour all-nighters, as support for national acts.  Also touring the South and the East Coast, logging countless stage-hours honing their unique blend of early Jamaican reggae with the bluesy soul of the American South.
