Week in Austin

Hey Free People!

I’m hanging out in Austin, TX this week.  I’ve been re-connecting with some old friends, making some new friends, and playing music at venues around town.  I’ve played a couple open mics over the past couple days, and tomorrow night (Wednesday, May 14) I’m sitting in with Craig Marshall at House Wine.  Craig is a great singer / songwriter who starts at 7PM and goes until 10 or so.

This Sunday, May 18, The Talent Tree presents Acousters at The Cork in Sherman Oaks.  I probably won’t be back in time, but it’ll be a great night of music, so head out if you’re close by.  I’ll share more as it gets closer.

Peace.
Seth

Lyrics:

Tear Down The Walls (8x)

We have these pent up rages
We share these fenced in cages
We are strong
And we are wrong
Hell is a prison of the self

Tear Down The Walls (8x)

We think we are so special
We think we’re more or lesser
We are strong
And we are wrong
Hell is a prison of the cell

Na na na na (etc.)

Tear Down The Walls (8x)

“When I wrote this song, Apollo Thirteen, I was feeling like that spaceship, lost on the dark side of the moon, just trying to get home, just trying to get back to that feeling of being connected with the one that I loved.”

Lyrics:

I’m Apollo Thirteen
ran out of fuel
on my way to you
so far, so near

I’m Apollo Thirteen
wrapping ’round your moon
heading back into
your atmosphere

Let myself go
just let me float
trust I will know
when I know

I’m Apollo Thirteen
nothing more to do
on a course for you
that I did not steer

Apollo Thirteen
dropped from the race
to a deeper space
of timeless sleep

Apollo Thirteen
beautiful and flawed
broken demigod
drifting aimlessly

Let myself float
just let me go
trust I will know
when I know

Apollo Thirteen
a promise of
something from above
that could not keep

Remember, if you don’t already have my “Into Your Atmosphere” EP, you can buy it now! If you do already own it, please share it with your friends, and think about giving it as a birthday or holiday gift!

Into Your Atmosphere re-release

Hi Free People!

I’m excited to share with you that I’ve signed with a new artist-centric independent record label called SB-Ignite, which is part of the Simply Boundless Entertainment group of companies. They are re-releasing my “Into Your Atmosphere” EP September 4, 2013 and putting together some very cool merchandise for you!  I’m shooting a series of videos for the songs from the EP with Jason Weissbrod and Jeremiah Kent which we will be releasing over the coming months.  Just to give you a taste, this is what we did on the first day:

Given my travel schedule back and forth to Austin over the coming months, I ended up scheduling the release party for the record on October 25, 2013 at Molly Malone’s LA.  I may set up a listening party with acoustic performance for some time in September.  Regardless, mark your calendars for the October 25 date and come out to support me at this show as I launch the next phase of my music career!

In other  Seth Freeman news …

  • My song “Perfect People of the World”  is featured in the TV-Movie version of Jim Benton’s “Dear Dumb Diary”, directed by Tony nominated Kristin Hanggi of Rock of Ages fame. Be sure to tune into The Hallmark Channel on Friday, September 6, 2013  at 8PM / 7PM Central for this back to school special, especially if you have a middle-schooler in your house!  You can find a preview on iTunes (mine is track #8) available for purchase on 9/10/13.
  • My buddy Nic Shake and I wrote and recorded a record together four years ago and it’s finally seeing the light of day.  Universal Media Group has signed Nic and is heavily promoting him in Malasia right now.  We’re going to put some finishing touches on the record this fall and come 2014 you may get news from me of an Asian tour promoting Nic’s record!

Also stay tuned for exciting news from Still Spark and Stefano, two other projects near and dear to my heart.

Meanwhile, if you don’t already have my “Into Your Atmosphere” EP, get ready for it on 9/4/13, and if you do already have it from my initial DIY release earlier this year, please share the news with your friends!

Peace,
Seth

 

Into Your Atmosphere

On the heels of his prominent placement in “Dear Dumb Diary” directed by Kristen Hanggi (Rock of Ages) to air on the Hallmark Channel on September 6, 2013 as well as his production and co-writing credit on Nic Shake’s upcoming release with Universal Music Group, Seth Freeman has signed a deal with SB-Ignite Records for worldwide distribution and promotion of his epic trio of solo EPs. The first of these EPs is “Into Your Atmosphere”.

From Manhattan to Santa Fe to Baton Rouge to Teaneck, New Jersey, Seth Freeman had been all over the country before middle school. He started singing and writing songs as a kid, and never stopped. He has written songs in dreams, on walks with dogs, or sitting with the guitar.

After leaving New Jersey, Seth spent a number of years in Boston, where he graduated from Berklee School of Music, and got his main guitar, a unique vintage Gibson SG Special, for only 180 bucks off a guy from the Want Ad Press (this was pre-Craigslist era). It was out of Boston that he was signed to EMI with his band Little John and toured up and down the east coast.

After a couple years in San Francisco with a new Little John lineup, Seth landed in Los Angeles, where he has been pursuing a solo career ever since. Seth has continued to write, record, and perform. He has also scored films, produced other artists, and had songs placed in movies and TV, as well as joining forces with other songwriters in the bands Still Spark and College Girlfriend.

Look out as Seth Freeman launches “Into Your Atmosphere”, on SB-IGNITE Records on Sept. 4, 2013.
