FreeSol is a progressive and unique hip-hop, rock and soul infused band from Memphis, Tennessee. They started in 2003 when the lead singer/rapper, Free, decided to move beyond the basic hip-hop formula of "two turntables and a microphone" and formed an actual band with the addition of E Ives on guitar/vocals, Premo D'Anger on the keyboard and Kickman Teddy on the drums. Growing up surrounded by the rich musical landscape embedded in Memphis' history, FreeSol is naturally influenced by a variety of sounds from blues to rock to hip-hop.
The band's name refers to a state of mind – a freedom of expression with a main objective of never conforming to the usual way of doing things... especially in music. With this philosophy, coupled with their musicianship and intelligent lyrics, their music swept the live band scene in the south as they battled their way to win every competition they entered.
In 2006, Justin Timberlake, also a Memphis native, saw them perform, immediately recognized their talent, and signed FreeSol to his upstart label, Tennman Records. They finished recording their debut album, No Rules, on which they worked with a variety of producers, inlcuding Jim Jonsin (Beyonce, Pitbull), Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem), Justin Timberlake, and more. Their first album is scheduled for release in 2011 on Tennman/Interscope.
