Phillip Nathaniel Freeman - January 2012

www.thelonewolfproject.com

According to The Lone-Wolf Project's website, the band is “a raucous traveling folk-rock circus act under the direction of a fanatical and slightly disturbed ringmaster known to many as Phillip Nathaniel Freeman.” With Freeman about to graduate, a long musical journey is about to come to conclusion, and another journey is about to begin.

Freeman got his passion for music at a very young age. He describes his parents as “genius musicians,” and growing up in such a household planted the seeds for a lifelong passion. While his parents imparted an appreciation for classical music, Freeman's cousin, a member of ’90s rock band Live, ingrained an equal love for rock music. As he got older, a love for bands like The Red Hot Chili Peppers broadened his musical spectrum. “The Chili Peppers are definitely a huge influence. They taught me the beauty of groove,” says Freeman. Even rap artists like Eminem have had a lasting influence on Freeman's musical palette. “[Eminem] definitely influenced my writing style, for sure!”

With such burgeoning musical passion, Freeman began playing in bands as early as middle school. The Lone-Wolf Project, in particular, began in July of 2006. “I was looking for a way to explore a budding love for Americana and blues music,” says Freeman. It's surprising how much of a historical influence there is on The Lone-Wolf Project. In particular, the period between the end of the Civil War and the 1930s is of particular interest to Freeman, despite the suffering people went through during this time. “Through that suffering came some of the best music out there. Those guys inspired my love for blues and authentic, organic sounds.”

With this began a life changing musical journey for Freeman. “I thought I should explore that too as a musician, and it changed my life. It changed the way I think about things,” says Freeman. Although the band started only as a side project, it really began to pick up steam when Freeman arrived at LVC. Seeing many of the local campus bands inspired Freeman to pick up his project again, and this resulted in Part One, one of The Lone-Wolf Project's first recorded EPs. And with the conclusion of the local LVC rock band Double Entendre (where Freeman was the lead singer), The Lone-Wolf Project has become Freeman's main focus. What has resulted has included a few successful tours and countless shows around the LVC area, many of which are on campus.

“I'll never stop playing music. I'll be on my deathbed with a banjo!”Whatever the venue, for Freeman the best thing about performing is being able to make people happy with his music, whether it is the audience or the musicians he chooses to play with him. “It puts light in my heart. That's the reason I make music, and it’s the reason I make music with other people. We have a blast."
