IN STORES THIS WEEK!
The New Freedom, originally a solo project headed by 2004 Silver Scroll song of the year finalist Marshall Smith, has now developed into a 3 piece band - who are now starting work on their first mainstream album release. Tom Fox, award winning South African guitarist, songwriter, and producer, and Auckland-based singer/songwriter Duncan Jackson now complete the group.
The band hit upon the idea of surveying New Zealand music fans' tastes as a way of obtaining feedback on the new album's direction and sound, whilst at the same time giving them more specific information on who listens to and buys their music! The survey aims to focus the bands efforts on what their fans want and to tailor tours and promotion more readily towards where their fans see or buy music. Fans are being offered the chance to win Sounds Music vouchers by participating in the online survey through the band's website.
The New Freedom is currently writing songs and commencing pre-production for the new album together with rehearsals for upcoming acoustic gigs in Auckland.
