Today Freddie celebrates the release of a new single True to My Roots with his album entitled “True to My Roots” scheduled for release in May 2016.

Finessing his craft with early tracks like Why Did You Do It and Do Good and Good Will Follow You and developing his brand through the mid-sixties, he teamed up with Ernest “Fitzroy” Wilson to form the duo Freddie and Fitzroy that later evolved into The Clarendonians recording for Coxone Dodd’s Studio One label. In 1975, Freddie’s musical and lyrical content changed with a strong slant towards social consciousness with tunes like Mark of the Beast, I Am A Rasta and reggae classic Bobby Babylon. He released his long awaited album “Mr. McGregor” in 1977, which contained reggae mainstays such as Zion Chant, Rastaman Chant and Walls of Jericho marking a major milestone in his stellar career and paving the way for his 1981 single Big Ship, one of reggae’s biggest hits.
In 1989, Freddie launched his own label entitled, Big Ship, featuring “Jamaica Classics: Volume One” as the first major release, which included popular tunes like Little Roy’s Prophecy and The Loser (by Derrick Harriot). Today, Big Ship is the most recognized Reggae label in Japan handling its own production, manufacturing, distribution and promotions.
