B-Free’s Directorial Debut Adresses Domestic Violence

Singer, Songwriter, PRoduver & musician B~Free is no stranger to taking first steps into new artistic territory.  “No More,” her debut as a music video director, is the first single release off her new album “Ode 2 A Luv Affair.” The video portrays a young woman, played by B-Free, freeing herself from the bonds of an abusive relationship.

“But,” says B~Free, “the song can honestly attest to any form of toxic interactions with others.” The video’s images and lyrics combine to make a compelling statement about a woman taking back her power and stepping into a new life. “I asked myself what would make me leave, the breaking point. I would refuse to let another person put their hands on me.” After witnessing close acquaintances caught in such situations, the singer researched the complexities of domestic abuse while composing the tune.

“No More” is the first cut of a conceptual album that traverses the ups and downs of romantic relationships. “Ode 2 a Luv Affair” explores vulnerability, passion and  compromise with B-Free’s unique talents.

“My style is very much rooted in my 90s R&B musical upbringing, with traces of current influences in today’s Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop & R&B.” She produced, wrote and performed on 13 of the album’s 14 tracks.

Taking another first step, B-Free features her flute playing throughout the album. “I’ve played jazz and classical flute for 17 years and I wanted to begin showcasing more of my versatility in my production as a solo artist.” The jazz flute solos at the beginning and end of “No More” signal hope and self determination.

The album is a testament to B~Free’s own fortitude in the face of extreme challenges. In 2013,  pneumonia and a throat infection left her unable to speak – let alone sing – for three months. Vocal cord surgery followed, leaving the musician fearing she would never sing again. After a traumatic year when she couldn’t sing a single note, B~Free became more dedicated than ever to share her musical gifts.

The year-long struggle transformed B~Free as both an artist and an individual. She’s performed in a number of venues throughout the country, including Summerfest[1], the Kennedy Center, The Double Door, and The Shrine. B~Free has shared stages with artists such as Slum Village, Dwele, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Talib Kweli. In her hometown of Milwaukee, Britney is lead vocalist of the popular group Foreign Goods[2] and collaborates often with lyricist-producer Klassik[3], bringing her commitment to music into her own community.

“NO MORE” was shot in Chicago at Terrell Johnson Studios with B~Free’s longtime collaborators Jovan Landry (videography and editing) and Jessica Estelle Huggins (production). Although B~Free sang all vocals, the backup singers were played by Amber Borders and Cameran Battley in the video, with husband & Foreign Goods keyboardist Quinten Farr[4] portraying the male counterpart of the relationship.

Digital Release of “Ode 2 a Luv Affair” is scheduled for Sept. 26 with the album release concert on Saturday, October 1 at Company Brewing[5] in Milwaukee.
