Jacob Freeman — indie / electronic music artist from Chicago, US
Chicago solo artist Jacob Freeman creates a cerebral form of indie-electronic music that feels calm and calculated. A student of the NYU music production program, Freeman’s honed skills are on full display on his forthcoming self-produced debut album Is the Mirror. Freeman finds the beauty in the space between notes, he cradles the listener with each beat and whispers intimate lyrics that draw you in.
After NYU, Freeman cut his teeth as a producer working with artists like M1 of Dead Prez and local Chicago legend Juice. For his own music, Freeman takes many cues from his hip-hop influences and credits his “embracing unorthodox methods, joining disparate components” to the genre’s more innovative techniques.
