Freekbass Shares New Single ‘Runaway’ Featuring Turkuaz’s Sammi Garett


Freekbass & The Bump Assembly featuring Turkuaz vocalist Sammi Garett are back with “Runaway.” The Color Red Music single is the first in a series of monthly singles that will be compiled on a new EP in November.

Bassist Freekbass, vocalist Sammi Garett, drummer Rico Lewis and keyboardist Sky White recorded “Runaway” at Color Red Studios in Denver. Label founder Eddie Roberts handled production and engineering duties.

Freekbass spoke about “Runaway” with Music Fest News:

‘Runaway’ had a distinct blueprint we were going for with feel, groove, and sound. Eddie said to think of the sound of those early Cameo albums which painted a perfect picture. As with everything, whatever we grab from the past, we try to pull it into the future, this track feels like we accomplished that. Moving our sound forward, while living in the Funk we are so familiar with.

This Saturday Freekbass hosts the latest installment of his SATURDAY-NITE-ChitChat livestream series. Freekbass will be joined by Khruangbin bassist Laura Lee on the show, which starts at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT via the JamBase Facebook page.
