Vince Freeman. Great voice. Excellent song: “Powers” – an empowering gospel-infused single of thanks and defiance. Debut album “Scars, Ghosts & Glory” incoming, March 2024.
From giving Ed Sheeran early opportunities as a club promoter, playing 300 gigs a year, to appearing on the first ever season of The Voice UK under the mentorship of The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue, an unexpected encounter with an entertainment lawyer gave him the tools he needed to create his debut album.
As a regular performer at West London club, Ginglik, Freeman founded their popular night ‘Shush’, performing alongside and/or helping to give early opportunities to the likes of Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Newton Faulkner and Nizlopi.
Performing at the likes of the F1 at Silverstone, horse-racing at Ascot, the FA Cup Final, receiving a platinum disc (for a collaboration with Lost Frequencies), 5 European Top 10s, sharing stages with Eric Clapton, Paul Weller, Jocelyn Brown, and Jamie Woon, and even a thank you on Ed Sheeran’s debut album, Freeman has had undeniable success.
His debut long player, if it is as strong as the lead single/opening track should by rights propel Vince’s career upwards to another level entirely – if there is any justice. A big talent.
