There is more than one artist with this name 1. The NEW Freewheeler band that is active right now are the CELLO Freewheelers, a unique bluesrock formation formed in the Netherlands in 2007, never disbanded. These Freewheelers have toured Europe and the US before they found there actually had been another band with that name, so they had to name their myspace 'defreewheelers' instead of 'the'.. Debut album of the 'Cello' Freewheelers is 'live at the Allicht', recorded in 2009 in the Netherlands. Songs from this album are 'summertime', 'black magic woman' and the originals ´Jekyll & Hyde´ and 'the Karaoke Singer', among others. Singer and cellist Ilene McHolland-Vossen and bassplayer Bas Vossen are the core of this band, that has different drummers and guitar players on each continent. Ilene and Bas participated in the Dutch Blues Challenge in 2012 as a duo. They currently live in Spain. 2. The (L.A.) Freewheelers were a rock and roll quintet, consisting of Luther Russell on lead vocals and guitar, Jason Hiller on bass, Dave Sobel on Hammond Organ, Chris Joyner on piano and John Hofer on drums. They were formed in 1989 in Los Angeles, California and disbanded in 1996. They released their debut album, "The Freewheelers", produced by John Fischbach (Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Circle Jerks) on DGC Records in 1991 to much critical acclaim, but poor sales. They soon hooked up with Rick Rubin's label, American Recordings via producer George Drakoulias and released Waitin' For George in 1996, again to critical acclaim, but equally poor sales. The Freewheelers were ahead of their curve, preceding a roots rock explosion in coming years, but unable to capitalize on their unique sound (which was often compared to The Band, Joe Cocker and Bruce Springsteen) in an industry unsure of where they fitted in. Luther Russell was chief songwriter for the group and went on to make several solo records and has produced or guested on many records to this day. All members went on to join bands such as Gordon, the Mother Hips and Soul Asylum.
