Freeze-Tag is the musical creation of Cleveland, Ohio native Marcus Alan Ward.
Product of a cultural upbringing, the self taught multi-instrumentalist spent his middle and high school days in and out of bands, later discovering and being exposed to jazz, soul, hip hop, electronic music, and more obscure sounds in college. Ward began crafting music as Freeze-Tag in May of 2011 and debuted his project with dance based single “Tidal Wave” in September 2011. Simultaneously giving himself and the world a birthday present, his debut EP WLDFLWR_HNY was released on his birthday in January 2012, garnering early buzz locally, nationally, and internationally. Freeze-Tag solidified his sound and building buzz with the release of ambient rnb/post hip-hop hybrid the “Eskimo” EP in April of 2013.
Currently at work on his debut album, the artist remains influenced by a large range of prog rock, electronic, soul, hip-hop, and avant-garde music. Freeze-Tag continues to pursue honest artistic expression and spread his dubbed “prisma-chromatic”, futuristic soul sound. The Midwest artist masterfully combines light electronics with sensual R&B flavors. [+]
