Bio

Freehand is the soul fusion outfit and passion project of singer-songwriter Gem Addison. Boasting performances in support of acts such as Odette Mercy and her Soul Atomics and a highlight performance before 10,000 climate strikers in September, Freehand’s earnest and dynamic set has been steadily gaining momentum in Perth’s scene. Taking inspiration from soul leaders in Motown and singer-songwriter Carole King, along with modern twists influenced by Emily King and Jill Scott, Freehand is sure to wrap you up in their soul-filled warm energy and have your heart bleeding with goodness in seconds.
