A creative, trans-disciplinary collective of writers, artists and thinkers, committed to the preservation of democratic soulcraft in the complexities of 21st century America.
Greater Freedom of Movement is a rendition of a music blog started in 2005 by Bryan McGlynn. For over eight years, the tight-knit GFOM community consistently posted music articles, reviews, show archives, “year end” lists, festival diaries, and more. During this time, the main contributors included Bryan (glynner), Justin (olde), Jordan (gordo), Jason (llyod) and Corey (fraggle). The original ethos being: “good friends. good times. good music.”– we felt compelled (with permission) to resurrect GFOM in a new light. We strive to keep the familial tradition alive, while continuing to redefine the very landscape of our exploration.
