Van Bassman formed Free Range Human in 2006 after the breakup of Athens-based band Something Shallow. Originally intended to be a homage to the Desert Sessions, Free Range Human was to have a rotating line up consisting of local musicians working together to make the best music they could.
While there have been many changes to FRH’s roster over the years, Van Bassman (bass, vox) and Brian “MoonBoots” Richards (percussion) have remained constant members. The current lineup also includes Bendi Davidow (guitar, vox) and Gary Deems (guitar, vox).
In March of 2011, Tooth Monster Records released FRH’s much-anticipated debut album Eponymous. While the CD is now OUT OF PRINT the album is still available as a digital download at most major online retail music stores and if you can find them, and you can afford them, perhaps you can hire FRH.
