Feeling a bit camera shy


In the spirit of John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Brad & Periel Stanfield, the core members of Freedom People, bring the message of Peace and Love through music.

Brad and Periel Stanfield, a unique (r)evolutionary couple who write, produce and perform their own timeless style of upbeat modern pop/rock songs with socially conscious themes from a global perspective.

Freedom People have performed as an acoutic duo as well as with a full band at various indoor venues, numerous festivals and peace marches/rally concerts in North America where many audiences have been in excess of 10,000. “We are looking forward to traveling the globe to spread messages of peace, love and freedom in a fun way through our music, reaching an even wider audience”, Brad explains.

In 1999, Brad traveled to Geneva as a solo artist (billed as the “Minstrel Of Peace”) to perform at the United Nations for the 50th anniversary re-signing of the Geneva Conventions. Periel, in addition to being a peace activist, is also an animal rescuer and activist.

In 2001, Brad & Periel formed Freedom People as a vehicle in which they could write and record their unique blend of 1960’s-70’s inspired songs in a combined modern rock and electric folk format. At the start of the Iraq War in 2003, they took to the streets armed with only an acoustic guitar, their voices and their increasingly popular ideals. Soon, they were playing to thousands of appreciative fans united under the cause of peace, love and freedom.
