Album Notes
Denver-based indie rock band Goodnight Freeman's highly-anticipated first studio album, Yūgen, triumphantly transports their energetic stage presence outside the borders of Colorado. With the anthem "Lest We Forget," new fan favorite "Devil in This Bar" and introspective treats like "Change," Yūgen showcases Goodnight Freeman's versatility as the group brings together sounds of rock, folk and blues in their own unique way. The release of Yūgen punctuates a banner year for Goodnight Freeman, who have played with Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band, SXSW-star Walker Lukens and Los Angeles-based indie phenom Sure Sure.

Known for their soulful lyrics, classic guitar solos and well-timed harmonies, Goodnight Freeman is a 5-piece band fronted by brothers Chad Hadersbeck and Joe Schliewe. The brothers formed the band after years of playing as a duet and longing for a fuller sound to express their message. The message in Yūgen, a Japanese term with no direct English translation, is rooted in contemplation of the profound.

"We chose the title 'Yūgen' as it represents both the mystery and beauty of our constantly changing universe," said Hadersbeck, who plays guitar, trumpet, harmonica and sings vocals for the band. "Alan Watts lectures had a big influence on us and we wanted to convey that positivity. This album is fueled by many difficult changes we've experienced over the last few years -- from losing loved ones to moving to new states, the music aims to uplift those feeling that 'only constant' and give them a sense of belonging."

Goodnight Freeman is a regular fixture of Denver's live-music circuit, bringing their high-energy performances to some of the Mile High City's best local music venues like Lost Lake, Walnut Room and Larimer Lounge. They released their first self-recorded album, "The Studio 44 Sessions," in the spring of 2017 and have been anticipating their first studio album since.

"We're proud of our first EP, but the reality is none of us are sound engineers," said Schliewe, who plays guitar and sings vocals. "I think the deeper, crisper sounds of Yūgen help to bring out the emotion in our storytelling. After all, it's creating that emotional connection with our audience that we love and the reason we play music in the first place."
