Having toured and worked with South African music royalty such as Arno Carstens, Francois van Coke, aKING, Zolani Mahola (Freshlyground) and many more as a guitarist, Freeman has a resume that most 25 – year- old musicians would dream of.

After this he joined his ﬁrst rock group, Colour Blind for whom he started writing.
The group was nominated for 2 MK Awards for best newcomer and best campus hit for their debut single. In 2011, the year before his move to Cape Town, he did his ﬁrst solo recordings and then performances as FRANK FREEMAN and has since released an online EP entitled ART BROKEN in 2014 and now his ﬁrst work in his home language of Afrikaans with single “Hoor Jy My” currently airing on radio stations around the country.
