About the band
Formed in late 2012, members Brad Wehlitz, Travis Hanna, Ryan Shephard, and bass player Caroline Joseph blend together a mixture of funky blues rock'n'roll and psychedelia creating an abstract yet punchy sound. They've been voted "Cincinnati's Next Big Band" of 2017 and have recorded one studio album.
The members of Freak Mythology all started to make music a huge part of their life at a very young age. Brad and Ryan met each other in elementary school, immediately connecting through music, and a short time after they both came to meet drummer Travis Hanna. Experimental jam sessions gave way to the idea of Freak Mythology. Basement psychedelia, influences of funk, jazz, and blues, and a drive to make something different while still making a genuine connection with people, spawned a sound that imitates the classic feel of rock & roll in a whole new way. After five long years of writing and perfecting their music, Freak Mythology finally finished up in the studio released their first album on April 7th, 2017. The album is a testimony to the concept of movement, change, and the experience that comes with it. Let it take you for a trip, track to track, and you'll hear a story about entrapment, confusion, motivation, and action. After this release they have been gaining attention around the Midwest after playing numerous large shows and music festivals such as Hippie Fest.
Freak Mythology is still currently playing shows around the Midwest and is in the process of writing their second album.
