Raised on the shores of Bondi Beach, Freeds discovered early on creativity lived within him. Spending his days in a single mother household within a Jewish family, he embraced his creative side through drawing, playing piano and scribbling poetry.

Freeds has always chopped and changed his life journey, lacking the ability to walk a straight line, but his connection to music has always been consistent. From the first listen to his music, it’s clear he’s a self-aware artist. For the better part of a decade, Freeds has been based in Melbourne, forming his own identity - one that sheds light on his journey through struggles with mental health and dependency. Ultimately, his music is optimistic - there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Freeds’ sound floats across genres but finds a middle ground between indie-pop and hip-hop, while evoking childhood nostalgia. Drawing from live instrumentation and sampling; he captures the emotion of troubled times over sunny backdrops. Favourable comparisons to Rex Orange County & Chance The Rapper are fitting; the songwriting is as clever as it is catchy.
