Drake Freeman

  • Gulu-Gulu Cafe 247 Essex Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

A new rising star on the Nashville scene and native of Atlanta, GA, Drake Freeman is an accomplished singer/songwriter and musician with his debut EP released in October 2015. As a versatile performer, Drake began with playing the piano at age 4. He then became influenced by musicians such as Mike Campbell, Tom Petty, John Mayer, and Duane Allman, to name a few and decided to pick up a guitar. At age 9, he learned to play electric and acoustic guitar. Since then, he has taught himself just about anything with strings such as bass, mandolin, banjo, and was classically trained on the viola. He sticks to his roots of the South and fuses his love of Rock N' Roll to create a Southern Rock experience similar to that of the Black Crowes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Blackberry Smoke.
