New Jersey born Mike Freund hasn’t had much luck with music: his first paying gig was derailed by a night in the ER after a car crash. Later, his equipment was stolen after a burglary at the recording studio he played at. But he’s gone on to win, and be nominated for, many local music awards in the bustling hub of Charleston, where he’s ended up. His first 2 full-length solo albums, Toe The Line, & And Now You Know were hits with bloggers, and he’s now wrapped up his 3rd record, In Between vol 1 acoustic. So maybe Mike Freund isn’t unlucky after all. Maybe the hardworking blues rocker just needed to find his niche: and that he has, hammering out woozy, rollicking anthems that are sure to get you dancing.
