*B~Free* – Open Mic, Open Heart
Three years ago today, I started Finding the B-Side to share the artists that I think should get more attention. I can honestly say that I’m just as excited about this task as I was on March 12, 2009, mostly because I get to hear lots of new music from artists like Chicago’s Brittany Freeman, better known as *B~Free*. She’s the perfect artist to feature on the third anniversary because she’s making good soul music, the kind that I know people would love if they only knew about it. She released her album, Open Mic, Open Heart, for FREE this month and it’s definitely worth your time. She wrote, composed, produced, and performed all of the tracks on the album and she is just as talented live as she is in the studio. It’s not everyday that you see an artist who plays the flute, so when I heard her YouTube covers, I was convinced that she has a musical ability that is simply too good to ignore. Check out her singles U & I and U Would Think and her flute cover of Musiq’s So Beautiful below.
