ZACK FREEMAN is a looping, sampling acapella performer. He’s been looping in New Mexico since 2004. While primarily a beatboxer/ vocal percussionist, Zack also is a serious lyricist. He takes the struggles of the ordinary and brings them to center stage, placing the humanity in a groove that moves the heart and body. The majority of his inspiration comes from his life as a husband and father and son in a mixed race family. Zack has appeared on “America’s Got Talent” and the Jerry Lewis Telethon as well as performing all over the United States at colleges, fairs and festivals. But that was a long time ago and now he mostly goes to work and tries to keep up with his teenager. Zack is simple person trying to explain complex problems…which is why he uses beatboxing to make one-sided arguments through music. At his current job, he is a one- man production team doing design, motion graphics, video and music production.
