Music Director, Arranger, Singer, Songwriter, and Producer are some of the many titles used to describe George Freeman, a diversified pianist from Wilmington, North Carolina. George’s musical style is all his own and oozes smooth and upbeat soulful contemporary rhythms with edgy cord progressions. Multi-genre influences from gospel and R&B to neo-soul and from jazz and fusion to funk and pop are heard throughout his music. George’s vast range of talents and passion for music are displayed on his latest smooth jazz album, Make It Happen where each track encompasses arrangements with melodies that capture and soothe the soul. Make It Happen includes an array of songs that appeal to both the young and old like the saucy Latin track, "Tengo un Amor" (translated, I Have a Love), that will have you shuffling your way to the dance floor, and "Sweet Love", a new jazz remake of Anita Baker's chart topping R&B hit. It also features the
stylings of solo jazz saxophonist, Jeanette Harris. Included as well is,
"Night Lights," a beautiful composition with a smooth flow. "Night Lights" is the first single from Make It Happen, which was released to radio in early March 2015. "Night Lights" also climbed to 26th place on the BDS Billboard Charts, and stayed on the charts for nine weeks.

He's written, played, produced and directed for more than a few well-known jazz greats to include, Pamela Williams, which is the first artist he accompanied on a professional level.
