"Break for Freedom"

Break For Freedom

Rarely does a performer's name so accurately describe their work.
But Freedom Summers is one of those rare individuals - and her songs deliver all her name promises and more.
An accomplished fine artist and singer/songwriter, Freedom will launch her self titled debut CD/LP in August.
The nine song album showcases Freedoms diverse influences, her indomitable spirit and charming personality.
"I would describe my music as spiritual soul-and this album in particular has got that folky feel about it." Freedom explains.
"I tried to be as simple and as pure as possible, without trying to over produce things-but it's got power in the lyrics and plenty of feeling.
I'm singing about my life, and the stories and wisdom I have picked up along the way - basically I write my songs so I can remember important things."
From the haunting sadness of Corinthians 13 to the soaring hope filled chorus of The Truth Comes With Tears and the earthy wisdom of Hunters and Gatherers, Freedom caresses her nylon strings with an easy honesty and laid back feel.
She draws on styles as diverse as 'dub reggae' and classic folk, interwining it with her very own rhythmic fingerpicking style.
Simple and with feeling, in a voice that speaks to the spirit and calms the mind, Freedoms songs indelibly touch the heart and soul of her audience, whoever they may be.
Freedom will enjoy the support of the ever harmonizing, ever entertaining hillbilly group, The Duanes, at the launch, which will be held at the Pub Bar, in Mitchell Street on Sunday, August 3.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Deep roots. Singing truth loud and clear, deep into the oneness of we, we who are faceing these times of now.

This is spiritual, this is about the earth, this is about life. One womans feelings and her guitar in reggae dub style or soul folk telling her stories. Simple, beautiful, and powerful.

You will find something of your soul in this music.

FReedom has spent 7 years in the Northern Territoy developing her music, now it's time to share it. Originally from Sydney, freedom has walked many paths but always on the journey of learning.

Her style is gentle rocking with deep groove. Her voice is a little husky and is centred in her womanhood.

'Living with a guitar since my mid teens, music became more of a focus when living in London. Untill then I was focused on making Fine Art.
The 'Lion Studio' in Brixton, London, was the first recording studio I ever entered.
I was doing some backing vocals for a friends reggae album. I had been travelling for 2 years 95/96, from my home in Sydney, Australia and found myself squatting in Brixton. Here I was greatly inspired by the reggae culture.
On my return to Oz, I went to protest against a urainium mine in the Kakadu national park, in the tropical Northern Territory. I was arrested and had to return for a court hearing 8 months later. I chose to stay in Darwin in the N.T. and since then continued to developed my music and my art.
I studied 3 years @ the Charles Darwin University, completing Cert 3 in Contemporary music, followed by the Diploma of music industry and technology (recording).
I now gig regulary in venues around Darwin, involved with community arts. Support the local Aboriginal land rights and human rights and promote sustainable living.
I perform in Festivals in the N.T. and on the east coast of Aust.
Supported 'Zavier Rudd' at the Darwin Festival 04.
I'm regulary interviewed and receive air play on local and national community radio.
I also travel to remote Aboriginal communities doing art workshops with the children and putting on concerts where I play with the local indiginous musicians.'
