Covey is an indie folk band fronted by guitarist and vocalist Tom Freeman. With a harmony-driven, group vocal sound and ambient textures, the band formed at Berklee College of Music in February 2013. What makes Covey different? Passion. In high school, Freeman's music teacher told him that he should pursue music not because he was the best player but because he was the most passionate player. With Covey, he has found four other like-minded musicians that share his purpose: Jordan Rich on keys, Dillon Rovere on drums, Mike Kerr on lead guitar, and Michi Tassey with female vocals. The band is expected to release its debut EP, Haggerty (named after Freeman's high school teacher), in the spring of 2015.
A songwriter for nine years, Freeman's musical influences range from Nick Drake to Fleet Foxes to Mumford and Sons. Covey's music has been featured on the Berklee Internet Radio Network (BIRN) and Under the Gun Review, and has won BostInno's song of the week as well as the New England band of the month in Deli Magazine. Covey has opened for artists such as the Last Bison, High as a Kite, Gabriel Kahane, and Hozier.
