Coming straight from Uptown, six-piece collective Freelance is coming to Boston GreenFest!
Freelance, fronted by vocalist Tim Smith aka Smithsonean, also features the talents of Justin Tyson on drums, DJ Ginyard on bass, Chad Selph on keyboard, guitarist Yasser Tejeda, and Chad Hill on saxophone. Freelance’s latest release comes ahead of the band’s forthcoming full-length project, which records their unique journeys as artists and black men with the goal to inspire listeners and educate them with what’s going on in society. “The band’s goal is to make music that is empowering but still sounds relevant and is enjoyable,” Smithsonean reveals. “The songs should be mentally and spiritually challenging but still move people at a rhythmic level. Freelance represents a lifestyle and we hope that that shows in our music. We hope that people are able to understand that we’re pushing for people to be able to live freely, pursue their dreams, and not be held back by anything.”
