The Incubators / Press

““The debut full-length release from Petaluma, California's The Incubators. Rather than starting off trying to please the artsy crowd (which is what many new bands do), these four musicians are aiming at a mass market right off the bat. And if the timing is right Must Hatch might just be an album that will plant them firmly in the public spotlight. This CD contains the kind of hummable Americana-driven mid-tempo pop that folks love. The band is comprised of Katie Freeman (of Cosmic Freeway), Chris Chappell (of 7th Generation), and Max Ramey (who plays with Davis Ramey). Lending their talents and skills are some rather amazing folks...Melvin Seals, Mike Emerson, Scott Law, Chris Haugen, Chris Rossbach, Matt Silva, Ian Lamson, T Moran, Dale Fanning, and April Grisman... Whew...talk about some amazing folks getting together to create something substantial (!). If you like smooth accessible stuff that's easy on the ears and mind you can't go wrong here. Ten cool cuts including Down The Ro”

“...."Must Hatch is all killer no filler, and a very impressive debut for an act certain to make noise on the festival circuit and beyond."”

“Chris Chappell, Katie Freeman and bassist Max Ramey catchy and infectious roots rock songs managed to bring all can be determined on the basis of the ten tracks that they composed and recorded their debut album "Must Hatch". Chappell and Freeman, who four years ago with 'The Incubators' began, singing mostly harmoniously together, but with male vocals a little more to the fore, including in the opening track "Down The Road", "Drift", "Viola Lee Blues "," Russian Roulette "(see video) and" Artifice Cake ", while Katie Freeman lead vocals accounts for the catchy" Trustin 'You "and in its self-composed" One True Baby ". The most striking stranger in our midst is by an infectious Hammond organ sound guided ballad "Bring Your Self To Me" as a real duet is brought by us and actually most of all is appreciated. There are no world hits on this album, but the ten songs on "Must Hatch" are all of excellent quality and form a most enjoyable first album 'The Incubators'.”

“The Incubators: Must Hatch–The debut release of the album includes groove-based root rock. The band is a nest collective of players and writers fronted by sing-songwriter Katie Freeman and Chris Chappell, supported by bassist Max Ramey. The mix of female and male vocals is a key aspect to their sound giving the album spontaneity. “Dead River Blues” and “Soul Ride” feature multiple instrumental sections while other tracks focus on Americana with a vocal twist. Additionally, the album is packed with performances by other Bay Area talents.”

“Lastly, we have Must Hatch by The Incubators. Singer/songwriter Katie Freeman, vocalist/guitarist Chris Chappell, bassist Max Ramey and several dozen backing musicians (which include a brass section on several tracks) have released an auspicious debut album. At their foundation they are a roots rock band but they build their sound with various instruments, which create some wonderful textures. The female and male vocals fit their style well. An album well worth seeking out as they have issued some creative and relaxing music.”
