Charlie has always had a strong passion for music. Whether it was playing the classical guitar he received as a gift on his fifth birthday, listening to a certain 1975 Bruce Springsteen record with his dad, or mixing a demo in his home studio, Charlie always felt like he was doing what he was meant to do. Being a teenage musician can be a bit rocky at times; they are not always taken seriously. One of the greatest moments for Charlie was seeing his dad’s facial expression change from “Oh, he figured out how to record guitar. That’s nice,” to some mixture of pride, surprise, and excitement. The point is, Charlie Freedman = music. Anything music.
Charlie Freedman goes through his life with the ears and eyes of a songwriter. He is right-brained. He sees a interesting street sign and immediately a flood of lyrics enter his mind.
“You have the soul of a musician Charlie.”
Eli Fribush (saxophone), has strong funk, reggae, and New Orleans style music influences. Having those influences in your music is great, but being able to subtly incorporate elements of those styles into our style of music, is something else. Charlie and Eli have on-stage chemistry. Being classmates since they were six doesn’t hurt, either.
