About the band
Freak Mythology was formed in 2012 as a psychedelic and funk rock experiment in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Funk. Psychedelia. Classic rock ‘n’ roll. This sound has earned them an Album of the Year award from UK Rock Blogger Pete Divine, 1st place in the famous Madison Theater Band Challenge, 1st place in the Cincinnati’s Next Big Band competition, tours across the Midwest & east coast, hundreds of copies of their debut album sold, tens of thousands of streams, song placements, and placement on radio stations in Cincinnati amidst numerous FM & AM stations across the country.
Influenced by a wide array of genres, Freak Mythology mixes funk grooves with an underlying psychedelia that has been electrifying audiences all over the Midwest. Their sound has been described as "so wonderfully familiar and timeless yet absolutely fresh, and not in any way a lame attempt to simply replicate the sounds from years gone by” by music reviewer Donald Strachen.
In April of 2017, Freak Mythology released their self-titled debut record, focusing on their foundation in sound and premonition, that landed them numerous festival slots as well as support slots for major headlining acts. Featuring the songs 'House Arrest', ‘Haunting Me’, ‘Wake Up’, the mid-album instrumental ‘Surge', 'Get Goin’, ‘Headed Out’, and ‘Where Does the Time Go’, their debut album shows elements of the musical diversity in Freak Mythology, and illustrating not only the intense dynamics and complex abilities of the members but also the deeper meanings that are created within the songwriting.
Currently, Freak Mythology is writing, creating, and playing their music around the midwest and furthering the reach of their sound. In their live show, frontman Brad Wehlitz, guitarist Ryan Shephard, bassist Caroline Joseph, and percussionist Travis Hanna come together, in order to bring together.
