FREEZE-TAG is the musical creation of 24-year-old 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 screamo and post-hardcore 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 upon completion of college, 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/post hip-hop hybrid single “ESKIMO” in July 2012.
With a focus on the unification of visual art and music, the artist
remains deeply rooted in the realm of fine art and art history, with a
great appreciation and admiration for such visionaries as Warhol,
Matisse, Basquiat, Rothko, Van Gogh, and Rousseau. Influenced by a
large range of 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, with a sound uncharacteristic of his locality.
