After taking some time off to finish a graduate program on the West Coast, Skott Freedman has moved back to the East Coast and back to the studio. He kicks off his return with a charity single, supporting LGBT youth, New Alternatives for LGBT Homeless Youth and GSANI of GABLES, on the compilation album I Hear On The Streets, on which he performs the title track. You can buy the CD at CD-Baby here. It features Gregory Douglass, Sacha Sacket, Mara Levi, Kathy Fowler, Josh Zuckerman, Thomas Raniszewski, Emily Nyman, Eirc Himan, Namoli Brennet, Reuben Butchart and Ki Ki Hawkins.
I am a fan of Skott, his music just strong and gorgeous. From his early releases, 2001's Anything Worth Mentioning and 2003's Some Company and 2005's Judge A Book, to the latest, the 2009 album The Cottage Sessions, I am always eager to hear what he is up to. I am proud to say all those are in my collection. His talent on the keyboards is remarkable, and his voice has a nice tone and depth. Here is is on a recent YouTube clip singing a cover of Coldplay's See You Soon, a nice message to fans as he just announced his first show in a while, in New York City on August 14, 2010.
He also posted this clip of another cover, Measure's Begin Again. While I do enjoy his voice and style, I would love to hear him singing some of his original songs on YouTube, cause I really like them.
