ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scott Free, the queer-rock singer/songwriter extraordinaire, is one of America's leading openly-gay male artists. His sometimes humorous, sometimes angry, always touching songs of queer life have gained him acclaim in both gay and straight media across the globe. He was named the Windy City Times (Chicago's largest gay newspaper) 2001 Artist of the Year. He hosts the annual 'Queer IS Folk Festival' (an LGBT folk music festival) at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, now in its fifth year. He is the host and curator of 'Homolatte', the longest running weekly queer performance series in the country, at the Big Star Cafe in Chicago.

Like all true rock & rollers, Scott got his start in gospel music - he sang falsetto soprano for the Lavender Light Gospel Choir of New York City. His early forays into rap produced his first single 'Beat The Rap', who's video was on rotation on Black Entertainment Television. Shortly after, Scott graced the European dance charts with a house music record called 'Higher' under the moniker Transient. Scott's first full-length release was a complete shift in gears - an anthemic, queercore CD called 'Getting Off'. This debut was hailed as a breakthrough in gay recordings. His second release 'The Living Dead' received 4 Gay/Lesbian American Music Award nominations. He joins an infamous lists of artists who's works have been banned by government agencies (the City Hall of Chicago in the winter of 2001). Scott has been interviewed in the punk bible Maximumrocknroll, and has been featured on National Public Radio's 'All Things Considered' and Canada's MuchMusic video channel. Scott's latest CD, his first full-length release in five years, is entitled 'They Call Me Mr. Free'.

I love how Scott uses almost every genre of music.
Scott Free is one of the best unknown artists I have found. He explores every genre of music available. He writes relevent songs about LGBT issues, check out Ronald Reagans Funeral and Another Day of The Cruelty. I can't wait for the next one from Mr. Free. Keep up the great writeing.
