Heartfelt, infectious and uplifting indie pop at it’s very best, the new album is a truly stunning collection of songs and will be released on limited edition vinyl and CD and will be available to download at all the usual major outlets.
FREEMAN first picked up a guitar when he was a Rolling Stones obsessed teenager living in Cuba. Taking inspiration from other ‘70’s icons such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Fleetwood Mac, Love, Bill Withers, America and Al Stewart he set up crafting his own take on those sounds in an analogue studio, playing live and recording to tape. A truly warm and distinctive voice, he creates songs that recall the starkness, beauty and tenderness of singers such as Jeff Buckley, Scott Matthews, Laura Marling and Devendra Banhart.
The multi- talented FREEMAN is also a respected abstract artist and after gathering a large following on Instagram he recently held his first exhibition at the Palm Tree Gallery in Portobello. He aims to hold a second exhibition later this year and one of his early paintings will feature as the cover art of the album.
FREEMAN is set to announce a string of live dates to coincide with the album release in the very near future.
