It doesn't take long for the Mississippi delta to come into focus in Freddie's music. A native of southeast Arkansas, he draws from childhood memories of time spent with friends and family on farms and rivers. After moving to Nashville for college in the late 1990s, he became disillusioned with the music business. It wasn't until he became acquainted with the less polished side of country music that he began to experiment with folk and alt-country. After starting a family, he has returned to making music with renewed determination and purpose.
