Dusk Impressions in Roseau Harbor, Dominica

Free Joseph is a singer, songwriter, producer and musician with a history in New Hampshire. In the 1990's Free lived with his partner Wini Dean who was a well-known figure in the Capital city as the owner of "Isis" a women's boutique on Main Street in Concord. His first CD, "He is Here" was produced in New London, NH by Cedarhouse Sound and Mastering during the period in which Free was a New Hampshire resident.

Born on the island of Dominica in the West Indies, Free's musical life was launched in 1969 when he began to express himself with the guitar, bass, melodica, bamboo flute, and piano. He twice won the highly coveted first prize of a national music competition in Trinidad and Tobago, while in the Caribbean.

In 1981, Free brought his musical wherewithal to the United States where his talents were immediately utilized as a gig musician. He performed from New York to California as a solo artist at venues with Joe Higgs, Burning Spear, The Wailing Souls, Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus and the legendary Augustus Pablo.

Despite these stellar creds, Free Joseph is most fulfilled when he can use all his creative talents and that means singing and playing with his band - The I Science Band. Free Joseph's overriding interest is to "give mankind soul searching music that can help heal the wounds of tribulation".

He has two critically acclaimed CDs and is hard at work on a new one at this very moment.

"Speaking in Tongues" is Free's instrumental album - a fusion of jazz and reggae. Here's what Chuck Foster of KPFK-LA Radio said about it: "Free's flute soars and floats, creating a gentle genre-bending style all his own. Relaxed & relevant, far-reaching and restful, peaceful and powerful music. New age? Smooth jazz? We call it reggae." 

Free's "He is Here" is more classically Reggae born of his roots and powered by life experience and years on the road, joyfully playing music of all sorts but always returning to where he knows he belongs. Order "He is Here" right here.

He is currently finishing work on his third CD "Believers and Non-Believers" due out very soon. It is a companion piece to Speaking in Tongues with lyrics to the instrumental stylings of Tongues.
