Shea Freedom was born in Los Angeles, subject to 28 different placements and like 68% of foster youth emancipated into homelessness. No doubt the early instability would prepare Freedom for the fast paced life on the road. As a professional musician & motivational speaker Freedom uses the stage to advocate for foster youth and environmental issues. Freedom has traveled all over the United States via motorcycle, collecting stories from the back of shrimp boats in the Gulf of Mexico to the Black Sands of Hawai'i. Freedom brought the love on tour, opening for artist Rising Appalachia in AZ, CA and CO. You can find Freedom sharing the good vibes alongside artists such as The Shook Twins, Trevor Hall, Nahko & Medicine For The People, Arise Roots, Tribal Seeds, Dustin Thomas, Mike Love and Toshi Reagon. As a member of the LGBTQ community, Freedom was awarded the 2016 Rising Star Award by Black Trans Men Inc and has shared the stage with renowned LGBTQ artist Goddess & She who were featured on the Showtime hit series "The L Word."
"In what lead singer and guitarist Shea Freedom is calling “folk-hop,”... Freedom layers fast-paced rhymes and sung choruses over a folky base of acoustic instrumentation...."-- The Aspen Times
