Saturday, June 10: B-Free

bfree_pridefestmilwaukeeB-Free performs Saturday, June 10 at the Wom!nz Spot Cafe.

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.

The Midwest native is not only known for her soulful voice, but as a multi-instrumentalist as well. Composing original songs at only 7 years old, B~Free has dedicated her life to music.

She’s a proud alumna of Milwaukee High School of the Arts and has earned degrees in musical studies from both Lincoln University of Pennsylvania and VanderCook College of Music.

B~Free released her first project, “Open Mic, Open Heart,” in 2012 earning rave reviews for her original composition from notable blogs such as This is RnB, The Conscious Tip and Fake Shore Drive.

However, she persevered and reclaimed her gift by dropping her latest album “Ode 2 A Luv Affair” in late 2016. Much acclaim has been awarded to the LP; it was hailed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as the “Number One Album of 2016” and by The Shepard Express as an “immaculately constructed R&B record.”

Today, Free serves her musical community as as an educator & solo artist as well as a musician/lead vocalist of Milwaukee musical collective, Foreign Goods. Her treasure chest of talents continues to catapult her up the ladder of Milwaukee’s music scene and she’s only getting started.

She remains hungry to give music what it’s been missing: a chance to B~Free.
