Bio

The Freedom Movement was founded in 1999 by Aaron Dukes (aka McAD) in an effort to bring members of the community together in an enjoyable environment, and to raise awareness around various social/political issues. With a background and a degree in the Fine Arts, McAD understood the value of incorporating an artistic medium as a way to communicate social/political topics in a manner that was digestible and appealing to the general public. Inspired by the poetry and style of artist Saul Williams, McAD began to refine his writing skills and started practicing the art of Spoken Word.

Amazed by the response and support within the local Colorado community, this quickly progressed into the Hip Hop style of music we hear the Freedom movement play today. Developing in the College town clubs of Boulder, Colorado the music reflects the up-tempo dance feel that was growing in popularity through the late 1990’s into the 21st century. The Freedom Movement has always remained positive and socially conscious about its message, communicating the ideals of localization, sustainability and community development. The Freedom Movement strives to “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” The result is a new form of music and an energy that is desperately needed in today’s culture.

The heart of the Freedom Movement, lies in its core members: founder, emcee, vocalist and producer McAD, vocalist/writer Sista Sunday, percussionist/emcee and Dj O-B-1.
