Internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated singer, Freddie McGregor has been a pioneer in Reggae music since it’s inception and continues to be a living pillar of the scene with his conscious lyrics, Philly-Soul style, and dedication to touring for over 50 years. Whether a romantic crooner or an emissary of strong cultural messaging his undeniable vocal ability boasts hits like his signature “Big Ship”, “Push Come to Shove”, “I Was Born A Winner”, “Guantanamera”, “Lock Dem’ Down” and “Bangarang” – the last 2 being chart-topping hits from the album “Comin’ in Tough”. With his profound natural talent and notable influence by legends Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Bob Andy and many others, Freddie has finessed his craft to become one of reggae’s greatest singers.
The latest project “True to My Roots” attests to the experience, intensity, and wisdom that are uniquely Freddie McGregor. It’s an album that genuinely has something enjoyable for every demographic but can be listened to and enjoyed without the burden of trends, market values or any other preconceptions. This is not the “phoned-in” exercise of a weary veteran, content to coast on the past, but the sound of a leader scanning the landscape with a positive view and an obvious passion for bringing great music to his fans – new and old. Freddie continues to please audiences with his lively and positively uplifting shows performing at major festivals, concerts, and venues worldwide.
