Freeman found his first guitar atop a dumpster, although his parents and grandparents bought the 12-year-old Freeman a new six-string and a book of chords the following Christmas.

Paul Freeman (born in South Wales, Wales) is a Welsh-born singer-songwriter of folksy pop songs now living in the United States. Freeman found his first guitar atop a dumpster, although his parents and grandparents bought the 12-year-old Freeman a new six-string and a book of chords the following Christmas. Freeman’s first song came two years later, an ode called “Some Day.” Freeman contends that he is completely self-taught as a musician. During high school, Freeman worked at the legendary Linford Manor, a recording studio north of Oxford in Great Linford, where he says he taught himself to play piano.

Freeman calls Bruce Springsteen, to whom he’s sometimes compared, and the Beatles his influences. Freeman moved first to London. He became a guitar player for James Blunt. Weary of London, Freeman then moved to Santa Monica, California, in the United States.

Six months after emigrating, Freeman released an EP. Freeman’s music came to attention of Michael King, founder of King World, who invited Freeman to play a benefit concert. Contacts made from the benefit brought Freeman’s EP to the attention of Clive Davis, who signed Freeman to Arista Records after a bidding war. Freeman’s EP You and I was released on the Arista label on 12 November 2008. The four songs on that album are the title track, “Tightrope,” “That’s How It Is” and “Earthquakes”. His EP "That’s How It Is was released on 1 August 2009.

It was produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, Flyleaf, Motörhead, My Chemical Romance) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (U2, Leona Lewis, Snow Patrol). Freeman’s song “That’s How It Is” was featured near the close of an episode of the Fox Network show Past Life called “Soul Music” (S01E03), first broadcast on 18 February 2010. His Song "Tightrope" was also featured on the Season Finale of Make It or Break It. His six-song EP Tightrope was released on 2 March 2010. Read more on Last.fm.
