As his stage name, “Freedom,” makes perfectly clear – Rey Rey Romero doesn’t like to be labeled.
And neither does his music.
A unique pop/soul hybrid that challenges the mind as much as it appeals to the ear, Freedom’s music effortlessly blends elements of blues, jazz, folk, reggae and hip-hop into a smooth yet invigorating brew of sound and emotion.
In short, Freedom sings and writes songs about love, fear, hope, longing and redemption. These are songs about the real world, sung by a man who has witnessed a life of growth and change.
After spending the beginning of his career as a solo freestyle artist, and then fronting the merenge-house band Suficiente (which scored a pair of club hits in the late-1990s in Latin America and its native Miami, Fla.
Then came freedom.
Reborn, Romero adopted the name “Freedom” and began writing songs that addressed not only the barriers he saw in the world he left behind in prison, but also the metaphorical walls he continued to see in the world outside. He also felt a need to use his newfound insight to speak to others
Perhaps most importantly, however, he wanted to write songs about how he could tear those same walls down.
