ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Members of The Asia Bronte Band sat down with WFXR’s Evan Johnson to talk about their group and involvement in the community.

Band members Asia Sawyer and Lewis Stump joined “WFXR News at Noon” for an interview on Wednesday, July 7.

The group discussed their involvement with New Freedom Farm, the non-profit located in Buchanan, as well as their recent performance last weekend at the farm.

When asked how their involvement with the farm began, Sawyer said she “started singing there on a whim last year for Freedom Fest and just fell in love with her vision.”

New Freedom Farm exists to help veterans and first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other conditions. The farm uses horses for therapeutic activity and provides a safe space where support is shared and given among veterans, first responders, and their families.

Last weekend, the band performed at New Freedom Farm for an event they held called the Legacy Run.

“That was amazing. Amazing group of people, it’s such a honor to play for people like that…you know people that have given so much for us you know. It’s the least we can do to perform for them while they enjoy lunch and safe riding days,” Stump said, in regard to their performance at the Legacy Run.

For those unfamiliar with The Asia Bronte Band, they have a unique style of music that has evolved from the interests of both Sawyer and Stump.

“She’s more of a country background and I’m more of rock and blues, so we’re kinda twisting that and you know building our own voice stuff like that so, it’s kind of hard to put a genre on it I guess if you will maybe southern rock,” Stump said.

You can catch the band’s next performance on Saturday, July 9, at Drifters from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
