Is it Rock? Is it Folk? Is it R&B? Is it Blues? Is it Country? Is it Funk?
Freddy Freeman is an artist who knows no genre. He blends all his influences into a rich stew of American Popular Music. Five years in the making,
Break The Silence showcases the versatility and talent of a unique singer/songwriter. With songs about the complexity of relationships,
the excitement of being young and out on the town, a nostalgic tribute to his hometown, letting go, and standing up to proclaim self worth, Break The Silence takes you along on one man’s journey of self-discovery.
His voice can be a grizzly growl shouting out in defiance or a sweet tone of plaintive intimacy. Bringing together players Freddy has worked with for years, the outstanding musicianship on this album perfectly punctuates and
further illuminates Freddy’s songs.
After spending six years developing his sound playing gigs around New York City, Freddy moved to Nashville, Tennessee where he continues to find new ways to grow and change as an artist. His music has been featured on a variety of radio programs around the country, as well as several compilation CDs.
He is a proud member of Outmusic, an international network of LGBT musicians, songwriters, and supporters. In 2004 and 2006, Freddy was nominated for Outmusician Of The Year, an award recognizing acheivement in music and community activism.
“(Freddy is) an out gay artist, deftly walking the line between being overt in his lyrics about various personal issues and experiences and ensuring that he creates universal images in his songs.” -Larry Flick, Billboard
The journey begins with breaking the silence. Until this happens, there can be no dialogue. No storytelling. No growth and no understanding. Freddy would like his audience to hear his pride, his struggle, his pain, and his
triumph. Let the journey begin. Break the Silence.
