The genre-bending group Freelance premiered at Piano’s bar and music venue this past week. This tight-knit harmonious group are close friends who met at Berkeley College of Music. Their sound jazzed up Piano’s back room with good vibes, inspirational and jazzy tracks.
The whole set was playful and interactive - reminding us to lift our spirits. The six person group started off the night with some soul with tracks like “Your Love” which was reminiscent of a young Stevie Wonder and had some funk sprinkled in the mix. The closer of the night was a slow, bold cover of “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe, which melted the entire crowd.
Freelance’s new and progressive sound reflects this need and drive to raise awareness around political and spiritual issues. Their sound is driven by this fact and they do it all with some relatable, danceable tracks and live performances, making it all the more effective.
The group has a planned studio album release this year, so make sure to check out the sound, lifestyle and movement of Freelance!
