WEWork Session #7

Freddie Dickson

Freddie Dickson is a London born singer-songwriter whose inspirations include Nick Cave, Portishead and Sharon Van Etten. Signed to Sony’s Columbia Records in 2014, he gradually became lost in the major-label machine and cut ties just two years later to become an independent artist. Dickson released his first album Panic Town in 2017 and returned to his roots of a more classic-singer songwriter style, adding a darker and more grungy sound to his songs. After growing tired of the London music scene and seeking new inspiration, he decided to move to Berlin, where he would finalise the recording and production of his second album Blood Street. Sketching various scenes of modern society and its darker shades, Blood Street was released in October 2019, receiving widespread acclaim from blogs and critics alike. Having immersed himself in the vibrant Berlin music scene, the Blood Street Band was formed and Dickson headed out on a headline tour across Germany finishing in his new hometown of Berlin in front of a packed out audience. In 2020, whilst in isolation, Dickson was inspired to write his latest single ‘Touch over Distance,’ about the feeling of responsibility during these difficult times and how the loss of human interaction can affect our relationships. The video for the song was created in Dickson’s home and features a young girl dancing with her shadow, longing for human connection. ‘Touch over Distance’ is due for release on 26.6.2020 via Zart Records.
