The Free Label sound fuses the musicality of 70’s funk, 80’s pop, and 90’s RnB with a modern sound that millennials easily vibe out to. The Free Label is heavily influenced by their Toronto contemporaries such as Daniel Caesar, The Weeknd, and Charlotte Day Wilson, but they keep their ears open to the international sounds of Tom Misch, SZA, and Anderson Paak. to name just a few inspirations.
The Free Label came together in the summer of 2017, though all members have had years of experience as artists and performers in Toronto. The Free Label are alumni of Canada’s Music Incubator, were featured artists at Youth Day 2017 and were 2017 Indie Week semi-finalists. In 2018 they were selected to perform at the Mariposa Folk Festival and performed in Toronto as part of the 2018 Canadian Music Week.
