Released back in September, Place In The Sky is a testament to freedom from lockdown, made from a mix of classic sounds and modern sonic landscapes. We chatted to Freddie about all things music:
|Can you tell us a bit about yourself? Where are you from and where did your journey into music begin?|
Sure, I’m from a town called Frome in Somerset, I was classically trained but I first was truly magnetised to music when I heard ‘Babe I’m gonna leave you’ by Led Zeppelin on my fathers Hi-Fi.
If you had to sum yourself up in three words, what would you say?
Charismatic, Honest, Deep
You released your new single Place In The Sky today. Can you tell us a bit about the song? What does it mean to you?
Sure, it’s really a song about feeling numb throughout lockdown and the energy really comes from that frustration.
Is this a hint at more new music to come?
Absolutely, another 4 tracks en route.
Who produced this music? Have you worked with them before? How was it working with them?
Myself and my mate, Alex Ferguson. We went to ACM together and have always loved making music in the studio and drinking beers after.
What is your least favourite bit about making music?
Having to sell myself. The rest is top fun!
Which artists have you been listening to recently?
Sam Fender has a couple of good tracks, but other than that not many new artists.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received, or that you are willing to share?
Listen to what people have to say and what they think you should do, smile and walk away. Then do exactly what you were going to do before, anyway.
Where can we find out more about you?
I’m on all the main socials as ‘freddiemercermusic’
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Just that there’s lots of new music to come, thanks guys.
I’d like to thank Freddie for taking the time to answer our questions and wish him the best of luck for the future!
