Company Freak

biography

Company Freak is a new dance music superband featuring a revolving multi-generational cast of vocalists and session players—a surprise return of actual dance music legends from the 1970s and 1980s performing alongside up-and-coming 21st century stars. The sound of Company Freak is a deliberate throwback to 1970s orchestral disco soul and 1980s post-disco when bands like Chic, Change, Paradise Garage, Salsoul Records, Studio 54, Boney M, Midnight Star, Kid Creole and the Coconuts ruled the charts but it's all delivered in a modern, electronic setting reminiscent of groups like Daft Punk, Scissor Sisters, Hercules and Love Affair, Hot Chip.

Company Freak includes writer / producer / arranger Jason King, singers Shayna Steele (Rihanna, NBC's Smash), Melissa Musique (Jessie J., Chrisette Michelle), Matia Washington (The Clark Sisters, John Legend), Yolanda Wynns (Angie Stone, Alicia Keys) plus a full multi-generational band w/ members of Chic and D-Train. Special guests include Sarah Dash of Labelle, legendary Indian soul/funk diva Asha Puthli and 1970s cult R&B star Vivian Reed.
