Freekbass is one of the world’s great bass players. He has been on the cover of Bass Musician Magazine, Bass Guitar Magazine/UK, three times, and has been featured in Bass Player Magazine numerous times. He has hosted master classes at “Bass Player Live” in Los Angeles and New York and “The London Bass Guitar Show”. And along with these bass superpowers, Freekbass has a funk music pedigree that is authentic. He has worked alongside funk legends, ‪Bootsy Collins‬ calling Freekbass “The New Spritual Warrior for the Funk” and keyboard icon, ‪Bernie Worrell‬, who guested on many of Freekbass’ albums. 
 Touring group, Freekbass & The Bump Assembly features drummer, Rico Lewis (George Clinton‬), Sky White on keys (‪Foxy Shazam‬), and vocalist Sammi Garett (Turkuaz) 
 Freekbass has released seven albums to date, including his 2019 release on Eddie Robert’s label (‪The New Mastersounds‬), Color Red . Grammy Award winning songwriter, ‪Itaal Shur‬, co-wrote several of the new tracks on the album, which also features Roberts, Garett, Lonnie “Meganut” Marshall, and the late, great, “Razor Sharp” Johnson. The album is a blend of the origins of funk with the new, and also a mix of regional influences under the guidance of Roberts as co-producer. In Cincinnati, one of the original hotbeds for funk music and home to ‪James Brown‬ label, King Records, Freekbass won the 2019 “Best Funk/R&B Band” at The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, his fifth time winning the award and ninth time nominated.
