about freedman

Freedman

-- English noun. Plural: freedmen. Origin: freed + man. 1: A man who has been freed from slavery --

combines a timeless acoustic sound with an electrifying, intoxicating flow that's been described as "melodic", "catchy", "laid back" and "magnificent" (Rootstime). Words and music are written by Filip Stuerbout. The sound is developed together with jazz guitarist Marijke Hellemans, who improvises her solo's. Live Freedman often plays in a traditional rock 'n roll combo with acoustic guitar, semi-acoustic guitar and double bass. The EP Couldn't Even Swim (2018) features a quartet, adding drums. Apparently, it sounds like "Chuck E. Weiss sitting in a bar on Haight-Ashbury as Tom Waits staggers in" (Keys and Chords). Between January and April 2019 Couldn't Even Swim is part of the "Belgian Highlights" collection of the Brussels Airlines inflight radio.
