Time for you guys to meet Freedom Sons. No, I’m not talking about a military march in the Middle East or something like that, we’re actually a band. Freedom Sons consist of Mario (lead vocalist) and yours truly (acoustic/electric guitar), but who knows, maybe one day we will expand to more instruments and members. Freedom Sons are all about rock, with emphasis on country rock and everlasting ballads. Let me tell you more about how it all began.
I’ve started playing classical guitar about three years ago on Christmas Eve after seeing two sisters play “Help” by the Beatles on YouTube. Four months later, I saw “Those who wait” by Tommy Emmanuel also on YouTube and decided to buy an acoustic guitar and go into solo instrumental finger/flat picking style of playing. After 2 years I realized that covering all the hits, instrumental, or classic rock, blues, pop, country etc. simply wasn’t enough for my creative soul, so I decided to make my own music. Soon after this, “Beacon” was born, as a symbol of what creativity is all about. Then came “Memories”, etc. Music video for “Beacon” will be available soon.
In Parallel, I started hanging out with my college buddy Mario, who is really a great vocalist, inspired by Bon Jovi, Steve Perry and many other rock legends of our time. We are really great friends and have such similar views about everything we come across in life. We realized that our positive and cheerful personalities, love for freedom in all forms, damn good sense of humor and above all, great love for music could help us create incredible songs. Freedom Sons represent pure freedom, unchained hearts and minds of all the man-made rules and regulations. By giving just a small contribution to the vast music industry, we wanted to give every listener a taste of it, what freedom is all about, through emotional songs, meaningful story and inspiring lyrics that take you beyond the laws of men.
This band wasn’t formed for fun, it was a must for us, we just had to find a way to be free! Each song represents a part of the whole story of “Open road”. Will we eventually be free? What troubles will open road bring for us? What will be the true cost of freedom? Stay tuned!
Our first album is called “Open road” and it will feature ten original songs and a few covers.
About the album
Each song in this album represents a journey through Freedom Sons life. Mario and Igor are best friends and they decide to embark on a journey together in search for complete freedom. They leave everything behind – bad relationships, lousy jobs, conflicting families – with nothing but an open road in front of them. People spend their whole lives living “by the book” and wondering what’s it like to live your life the way you want to live it, with feelings of being “trapped” following them throughout. Freedom sons faced that same problem, but they decided to do something about it!
Freedom Sons – Andrea
This is where our journey starts, are you ready?
Mario and Igor were close friends from day one. Realizing how similar their views on life are and how many problems they are facing alone, they decided to do something about it – together! Mario had this unforgettable ex girlfriend who he loved so much, but could never let go of. This is her story.
Freedom Sons – Free
And the journey continues..
After his mourning for “Andrea”, Mario decided to take a short break from everything and Igor gave him some space. After a short period of time, Mario realized he couldn’t separate himself from the rest of the world, so he decided to meet up with Igor and continue their journey. With not much to say, they started running through the woods with nothing but complete freedom in front of them. Check it out.
Freedom Sons – Sun
This love ballad is a song that compares a woman’s beauty with the setting sun. Just like a woman, the sun represents a certain mystery, and gazing upon it for too long can make you completely lose yourself in the moment. Enjoy
Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know (feat. Kimbra) – Freedom Sons cover
To get more people to see our original songs, we decided to make a cover of this incredibly famous song. Since the original video is quite unique, we decided to make a unique video ourselves much like the one that REM released for the song “We all go back to where we belong”.
