The Frestonians are a three piece band with a guitar-driven sound inspired by Rock and Blues legends ranging from Nirvana to BB King. They got their start in 2019. And then a pandemic happened. However, the Ipswich, United Kingdom group powered on undaunted. In the absence of live gigs they took their show online.
During the UK lockdowns the band regularly performed streaming gigs on sites like Giving Gigs, Let’s Rock the Lockdown, Socially Distant Fest and Virtual Open Mic. The Frestonians have also been featured on BBC Radio Suffolk and the John Peel Centre’s Whole SheBang show. Now that live venues are opening back up the band has taken to the stage. They are performing at venues all around eastern UK.
“Mississippi Delta Blues” is the latest single and video from The Frestonians’ debut EP ‘Midnight’, released worldwide to all major streaming services on January 15, 2022. On the track the threesome rips through a 12-bar Roots Rock barn burner. Guitarist Peter tears up the fretboard while drummer Wendy sings a lovelorn blues torch song. Meanwhile she and bassist Tom lay down a solid backbeat groove.
