Musik and Film Inc, is proud to announce the exclusive signing of Adrianna Freeman to Musik and Film Records and Musik Radio Promotions.
“Stephen I just want to thank you and Rhonda-I have worked for 11 years, playing second fiddle to everyone else. Being looked over and passed over for other artists. It feels so good to be with people who believe in me and my music. For so long I felt like it was just me, my family, a notebook , and some songs. I have been promised so many things by so many people in the music industry that I thought I would never be able to trust anyone else in this business again. BUT- I trust you and Ms. Rhonda! I am so thankful that God lead my family to you, I really can’t thank you guys enough for helping to renew my faith in this business once again. With God’s help- I am starting to really believe that we can go all the way!!!!” – Adrianna Freeman
Adrianna Freeman is a Country singer. Reared in the South on a plantation property passed down through her family’s three generations of farmers. Adrianna began sharing her song when she was just a little girl. All dolled up in her yellow dress, with matching ribbons in her hair and her best Sunday shoes she would sing on the back of her daddy’s flatbed truck at the local farmers markets where the family sold their latest crops. Her Grandfather and her father planted the love of Country music in her heart before she was born
As a teen, Adrianna worked overseas with the missionary organization Teen Mania. It was there that she realized the healing and joy her voice could bring to others. Inspired and determined she set out to make music in the big world of Nashville. The realities of the music industry are a harsh reckoning to even the most seasoned and accomplished professional.
With the tenacity and drive that only a true country heart can propel, Adrianna’s song would not be caged. After endless rejections, a first victory came through, winning the attention of Teddy Gentry of the super-group “ALABAMA”. In 2007, Teddy generously offered his talents as producer to Adrianna’s project. In May of 2009, Adrianna was hand-picked by Mr. Gentry to be one of twelve artists for his “Teddy Gentry’s Best New Nashville”, a project sponsored by Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. However following this break, her career stalled.
Finally in the summer of 2012, Adrianna met with Stephen Wrench, President of Musik and Film. Stephen was blown away by Adrianna’s voice. He recalls, “It gave me chills. Adrianna brought to my attention that there has never been a black female country artist. I seriously questioned why? Country music is country music. it only matters that when a listener hears your music does it move them? Adrianna has moved me and I know she will move anyone who hears her.”
Her Debut album, Either You Do or You Don’t has been released through Musik and Film Records. The single, “Will Not Be Your Tennessee” was released to radio by Musik and Film’s radio promotion division, Musik Radio Promotions and is gaining traction fast! “Adrianna has received a great deal of attention from radio; especially in the UK, Europe and Australia.
Adrianna Freeman’s music speaks for itself. Her music makes it easy for Musik and Film to try and break her as the first female African American Country artist. With her soft Southern lilt, clear crystalline tone and sunny sweet delivery, Adrianna Freeman stands on the edge of the gilded cage, the door is open and she’s ready to fly!
Adrianna reflected that, “Ten and a half years ago my family and I embarked on a journey that has transcended across three generations. Before I was even thought of, my grandfather, Walter Freeman, dreamed about becoming a Country Music singer, and he passed his dream down to my father, Ed Freeman. My father passed the dream down to me, and I have been dreaming ever since.”
It’s time for Adrianna’s dream to come true!
