‘Redemption’ follows the recent ‘Good Times’ track and his debut single ‘Lay On’ which have both picked up widespread critical support from the Huffington Post to plays on BBC Radio London. ‘Lay On’was accompanied by a video featuring footage from the Oscar winning French short ‘The Red Balloon’ and had 180k views and over 1.5k shares on its first week online.
‘Redemption’, available to download at all major outlets, finds the singer in reflective mode and is heartfelt, infectious and uplifting indie pop at it’s very best. Recorded at Eastcote Studios in Kensal Rise with Jamie Brown and engineer Andy Hughes, the new single is another indication of what to expect from the singer’s forthcoming debut album ‘Truth’ which is set for release in the Spring.
The multi – talented 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.
FREEMAN is set to play a special live show at the Mau Mau Bar in London the 12th May, more dates will be announced to coincide in the very near future.
