FREEVOLT's album "CALL ME AT NIGHT" available for purchase on CD and for listening on:
With more than 80 gigs in bars, niteclubs, studio showcases, festivals, etc. in Paris, Toulouse, Montreal (4-gig tour in 2011), Northern Ireland and a myriad of towns throughout France over the last couple of years…
FREEVOLT is an underground, indie and alternative rock band created in 2008 by Frédéric Rességuier (Fredox) and Frédéric Pasco (Muppet).
The duo were rapidly joined by Philippe Neil (Filou) and Philippe Jitnikoff (Koff). May 2013, Koff flew off to new adventures abroad and Charles Tilly (Charly) joined the band.
In December 2013, Charly left the band to explore new musical paths.
In January 2014, Dan Laurens, a magical guitarist with years of experience, joined Freevolt as second guitarist and vocalist.
Expert sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist, Dan has played with a myriad of groups like KarmaStone, The Ting Tings, and has accompanied Louis Bertignac, Izia, M, Michel Gondry, etc. for recordings and live & direct.
All four guys share an undying passion for indie rock and live performances, have great on-stage experience and know how to get a crowd moving.
FREEVOLT's great spirit, energy and love of live & direct make the band one-of-a-kind and quite unique on the French and European scene.
Each gig is pure pleasure, a one-of-a-kind experience, full of electrifying thrills and unexpected twists and turns... from Fredox's inimitable smoky vocals to Filou's juiced-up chords, Dan's ever-so-groovy melodies and finger-tricks and Muppet's sensational mental beats.
These free electrons invite us on a journey through a weaveworld of delicacy and dynamism, subtlety and spontaneity.
Recent dates have included well-known venues in Paris such as the Cigale, the Trabendo, the Boule Noire, the Batofar, the Nouveau Casino, the Gibus and many more throughout France and showcases in various festivals, nightclubs and recording studios throughout the Paris region.
All music and texts (all in English) are composed by the four band members.
