Have you ever asked yourself, how in the world did you miss out on something that you very well should’ve been in the know of? Well that’s what happened when the “Freedom is Love” album dropped by The Freedom Affair late last year but as the saying goes, better late than never. With that said, allow me to (re)introduce to you in case you missed out or haven’t had in your rotation lately, The Freedom Affair on Sunflower Soul Records.
“Freedom Is Love” is the debut album from Kansas City’s newest soul juggernaut, The Freedom Affair. The album explores themes of love, heartache, empowerment, and togetherness through a varying landscape of hard-hitting funk, luscious soul, and everything in between. The Freedom Affair is a unique collective featuring 3 powerhouse female vocalists in front of a dynamic 6-piece band. On “Freedom Is Love”, each of the ladies get their time to shine individually, but the magic is on full display when all 3 come together in unison and harmony, symbolically embodying the messages that they sing about. The album was recorded and produced by Chris Hazelton, utilizing the best of vintage and new recording technologies to create an authentic experience, befitting of a soul record that would have been relevant 50 years ago as much as it will be 50 years from now.
