Freebo’s Story through Music (October 13, 2011)

FREEBO is an award-winning singer/songwriter (2008 Posi Award for “Best Song” in The Most Uniting Category, The ’07 Los Angeles Music Awards “Best Folk Artist”, Winner ’07 South Florida Songwriting Contest, finalist in 2009 The Great American Songwriting Contest, Finalist in 5 different categories of JPF Awards), but he is probably best known as a Folk-Rock-Blues Icon. For 30 years, Freebo played bass on recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time–people like Bonnie Raitt (10 years), John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Neil Young, Loudon Wainwright III, Dr. John, and many others. He has also appeared on Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, Muppets Tonight, and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap. It was his yearning for more creative expression, however, that drove Freebo to begin a process of deep inner discovery, and this has led to his successful transition as a singer/songwriter.
   The Philadelphia Inquirer said of Freebo’s 3rd CD, “Before the Separation flows with a compassionate spirit rooted in 60’s ideals, packs a gently urgent relevancy, and is delivered with engaging earnestness.” Of his new CD “Something To Believe”, says, “In a cluttered world that seems to thrive on excess, self-promotion, and personal and political agendas, listening to Freebo and his new album is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness”.
   Freebo’s songs embrace “his own cosmic blend of Folk, Country, Rock, Soul, and Blues ear-pleasing genre-defying music”. And in his live shows, performed on acoustic guitar, Freebo creates a unique, intimate, and inclusive atmosphere with his audience.
Freebo’s latest album is “Something to Believe”. The collection starts with “Standing Ovation” which could be the highlight of the album.  This song represents how Freebo wants to be remembered at his own funeral
