Saturday, June 11: B-Free


B-Free is part of the Hip Hop Showcase: Saturday, June 11 at 9:00 p.m. at the Wom!nz Spot.

When you’re first introduced to the soulful & artistic sound of B~Free, it is but a mere taste of all the capabilities this young lady embodies. From the pureness of her voice to the depth of her lyrics, there is no doubt that the singer, songwriter, producer and musician is sure to leave her mark on music scenes throughout the Midwest and beyond.

Born in Chicago, and raised in Milwaukee, a musical family inheritance lead her to discover her love for the art form by the age of 2. She began singing and playing piano in her early years and has been writing and composing music since the age of 11. Majoring in music at the Milwaukee High School of The Arts and Lincoln University of PA, she has been thoroughly trained in a multitude of genres including jazz and classical flute, voice and piano.

Now armed with a B.A. in Music Performance and a Master’s in Music Education, her main purpose is to share her gift with the world. She’s performed in a number of venues throughout the East Coast and Mid-West, including Summerfest, the Kennedy Center, The Double Door, etc. As well as shared stages with artists such as Slum Village, Dwele, Talib Kweli, etc.

2012 marked the release of her first independent project Open Mic, Open Heart, an eight track studio album compiled of all original material composed, produced, and performed by B~Free herself. The project has garnered incredible reviews from notable blogs and media figures in the U.S. and Europe. Infused with traces of past and present generations of Soul, Hip-Hop, and R&B; it is an honest and passionate representation of all that is soon to come from the songstress.
