Zack Freeman is a looping, sampling acapella performer. He hangs a sampler around his neck and samples his way through break-beat and funk improvisations. While primarily a beatboxer/ vocal percussionist, Zack also is a serious lyricist. His lyrics put humanity first and the groove in the pocket.

Biography

I am influenced by my parents and Bobby McFerrin and Polynesian communal signing. I am influenced by black choirs and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I listen to Afro-pop to get a sense of long complex grooves and I listen to punk to understand three chord thunder.
I pull it all together in 3 minutes. I loop the beat, sing the rhythms and drop the bassÂ…then I sing my freedom over the top.
