Freddy is nearly ready to release the follow -up to "Things You Never Thought I'd Say." An indie success story, "Things" resulted in airplay and film and TV placements, most recently on ABC's hit show Men In Trees, and in the upcoming Sony feature film 'Wieners'. Three singles from the album, and an original Christmas song, spun at over 50 commercial Top 40 and Hot A/C stations in Canada. Performing Songwriter said, "With emotionally involving lyrics, fantastic arrangements and one hell of a voice, Freddy makes his Things You Never Thought I’d Say a brilliant gem." DiscoveringArtists.com is "Beyond impressed with the quality and content of this guy's work. He knows how to craft an inquisitive song, while bringing the appropriate alternative rock sounds into it...you know, to really make it stick with you...comparable to Radiohead and Goo Goo Dolls, and his vocals are raspy and introspectively suiting. Go out and get this album, it's worth it."

Influences

Beatles, Elton John, Marvin Gaye, Oasis, Blur, Stereophonics, Craig David, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, Abba, Tom Jones, Frank Sinatra, Sloan

Bio

Freddy has always been about being in 2 or more places at once. His music reflects this dichotomy with a mixture that can?t be pigeonholed. It is edgy, yet familiar, melodic, yet original and, much like life, basic and complex. And that is the essence; he writes real songs about real things. These are the things that we can all identify with: love and loss, happiness and despair, hurt and redemption. Freddy?s influences are under the surface, a mix of old and new. From the Beatles to Elton John to Marvin Gaye to Oasis, the result is fresh and captivating. Country music influences from childhood battle with Britpop influences from Freddy?s years of living in the United Kingdom, when Pulp, Suede, Blur, Oasis, and the Stereophonics ruled the charts, and Craig David was just emerging. From the first time you listen, you get that tingle in your spine. Because the four right chords can make you cry, and when it?s right, the first time you hear it will feel like forever. Acoustic meets electric, dark meets light and opposites blend seamlessly.
"...Freddy ? a singer/songwriter from Calgary, Alberta, Canada... has a really good album on his hands titled Things You Never Thought I?d Say...Several songs stand out, particularly ?A Moment Away,? "Change It All In One Night,? ?Apart,? and ?Free.? The album?s R&B closer ?Secret (You Know What)? hints at a real future in music while making Justin Timberlake jealous." - Craig Curtice, 2 Walls Webzine
