Every so often within a generation, the intersection of passion and talent yields a product that transcends time and defines an era and style all it’s own. Born of the rich musical culture inherent in the landscape of Louisiana, Freddy Rio, emerges as a consummate artist whose dynamic blend of powerful vocals and sultry crooning made him a prominent performer in Baton Rouge’s open mic circuit in the early 2000s. With a soulful sound reminiscent of yesteryear’s Donny Hathaway, beautifully woven with the lyric tenor of R&B vocalist Maxwell, Freddy Rio’s talent is as unique as it is familiar.
Freddy Rio’s much awaited debut project infuses his unique artistry, and true musicianship with substantive lyrical content to create what he describes as “new age soul” – reviving classic soul/R&B by injecting contemporary genres and melodic flair to create a style and sound all his own. Look for this new artist to embody the symbolic definition of his name “Rio” – PASSION, as Freddy Rio brings new life, new zest, new talent, and new age soul.
