About The Band

Livernois is a five-piece assemblage of veteran Detroit rockers and folkies that blends sad bastard Americana with Downriver rock n’ roll. Featuring current members of The Codgers and noted Rhythm Corps guest artist Jim Flynn, this band is driven by lyricism and that Ecorse River grit that’s easy to deride but hard to get off the soles of your shoes.

Flynn’s plaintive fiddle and Dave Leslie’s telecaster weave together earworm musical phrases, while Eric Freeman (John Freeman’s older brother better known for his role as a local fight promoter than as the fine percussionist that he is) and Dirk Schwarzhoff hold down the rhythm. The result is something like Drive-By Truckers meets Terry Allen. It’s a fascinating vehicle for Freeman’s songs, which are replete with proper nouns evoking mostly-forgotten places.
