Taking a classical training in piano & composition & combining it with a love for hip-hop, electronica, soul & pop, producer/songwriter Eddy J. Free seeks to break molds & cross genres.
Since 2013, Eddy has released 13 projects featuring over 45 artists. His music's been heard internationally on shows such as MTV's The Real World and he's produced for eclectic artists from around the globe including 2x Grammy nominee B.Slade and critically-acclaimed gospel/soul recording artist Tim Dillinger. Free has been in the studio learning his craft directly from such platinum selling producers as Kayo (LaFace Records, TLC, Toni Braxton) and Grammy-winning Andrew Gouche (Chaka Khan, Mary Mary.)
Eddy's new project, City Lights, is set for a May 2015 release. With a desire to innovate and work with young artists around the world, Free has kicked off three contests as part of the City Lights project: one for dancers, one for photographers and one for DJs/producers. See details below.
