Artist Interview: Freeman

We got to sit down with London based singer/songwriter Freeman about multiple things that include, his new album, his favorite memories with music, his passion for painting as well as a talent not many will know about that he has started to get into, plus more. Freeman released a new single back at the beginning of December from his new album which is slated to be released later this year via Catapult Records .

We’d like to start off with a few questions to get to know a little more about you. Tell us about how you started as a musician. How old were you and what were some major influences?

Hey there. I was useless at musical instruments as a kid and could barely sing a note in tune either. I adored listening to music though.  I walked past a guitar when I was 21 and though it sounds naff as F, it called to me ! I doggedly taught myself. Then I started writing songs and I never looked back. My singing improved the more I sang. I have some lessons too just to make sure i got a decent technique down and don’t do long term damage. Major influences include The Stones, Dylan, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Bob Marley, Bill Withers, America, Fleetwood Mac, CSNY, Jeff Buckley, R.E.M., Counting Crows, Paul Weller etc 

What are some of your fondest musical memories?

My first ever gig was an open mic slot in NYC. I had to knock a few back to get the courage up but the feeling of getting through my first performance of an original song to a decent crowd of people was a f*ckin epic feeling ! I knocked back a few more to celebrate ! 

Aside from music, I understand you’re also a fan of abstract painting. Explain to us how these two go hand in hand. Do you have any other hidden talents?

I love to paint and always listen to music whilst I do. It’s very freestyle – blank canvas, no planning, just go at it with feeling and looseness. The same with writing songs. I don’t plan. I pick up my guitar and see what comes, let it flow. Other hidden talents ? I started doing a bit of acting recently and ended up in a Chinese Netflix movie as the bad guy . Let’s wait till it comes out to see if we can call it a ‘talent’ !

How do you balance your music with other obligations within your life?

I try to surrender and trust. I have made a record that I know is authentic and truthful. I trust that it will find its audience and have the life it needs and the reach it needs. I do my best to put a good team around me and focus on quality production and strong videos – but really, I have to let the outcome go. You can’t stress this stuff.  It’s too damn easy to get frustrated in the music business.. what’s the point. Make music that is authentic to you and then trust in the way it all plays out.

Moving on to your upcoming album, Truth, can you give us some insight on what to expect

Retro, analogue, warm vibes. Heartfelt, melodic and meaningful tunes. Some melancholia indeed but also plenty of rock and roll and upbeat sounds. Lots of harmonies, top musicianship and a record that I hope you will enjoy listening to repeatedly and getting deeper into 

What kind of input did producer Jamie Brown and engineer Andy Hughes have on the album during the recording process?

A lot. Jamie brings a lot to the table as he is a great musician and songwriter as well as a producer . So, always on hand with suggestions for parts, harmonies, pushing you to improve a melody or whatever. Andy was very proactive too and very quickly became part of the team as well as being a highly proficient engineer.

How do you hope your music from this new album will affect your audience?

I hope they will feel the truth and authenticity in it. I hope they will listen deeply and it’ll be a springboard to reconnect to listening to music carefully and properly – not just one download here, one song there. I hope they will appreciate the time and the effort and that they can relate to the themes. All in all, I hope to achieve a strong connection and bond with the audience. 

Tell us about the filming process for your new single ‘Good Times.’ Where did the filming take place?

A launderette in Islington. It was a laugh. We had a stunning model in a bikini, a great fish and chippie right next door… good times ! 

Were there any setbacks or “behind the scene” stories?

It all flowed without a glitch. It was slippery as hell so we nearly had a wipeout or two but I’m glad to say that no models or band members were harmed in the making of this video. 

What kind of image did you have in mind prior to filming the video?A

Surreal escapism and fun basically

 Are you happy with the overall result?

For sure. It’s got a retro 70’s feel and a sense of fun, Joy and love. I’m very happy with the sense of chemistry between myself and Hanna the girl too . It has a good feel

Before we end, is there anything else that you’d like to add?

Just to say – thank you – and have a damn fine 2018. Cheers F x
