Freddy's early exposure to music included all types and while in high school, he began to perform on the Georgia Jubilee, a weekly live country concert series that was also taped for radio broadcast.  Other notable Atlanta-based alumnae of the Jubilee included, Ray Stevens, Billy Joe Royal, Joe South and Jerry Reed.

When Freddy entered the music business full time, he perfected his skills as a live performer and songwriter.  He also became a very busy studio guitarist.  His unique guitar licks can be heard on many of the successful recordings that came out of Atlanta, including Billy Royal's "Down In The Boondocks."

While touring as Billy Joel's lead guitarist, Freddy was seen by Paul Revere of Paul Revere And The Raiders and was asked to become a member of that superstar group.  His first performance with The Raiders was on the Ed Sullivan Show.  While with the group, he performed major concerts throughout the U.S. and Europe, and was feathered on their weekly Network Television Series, which lasted three years.  During his stint with The Raiders, Freddy co-wrote with
Tommy Roe songs, "Dizzy" and "Jam Up And Jelly Tight"  two multi million
selling records for Roe.  In 1991 "Dizzy" was again #1 for two weeks in
England by Vic Reeves & The Wonder Stuff.

aul Revere was always aware of Freddy's love of country music. So one day while The Raiders were recording a session in Los Angeles, some sides were produced by Freddy.  The rest is history.  His first song out was "Games People Play" written by old Atlanta side-kick Joe South, and was released by Columbia which resulted in Freddy having a solo deal as a country artist.  Shortly thereafter, while touring Europe with The Raiders, "Games people Play" shot up to 31 on the country charts in America.  That same year, Freddy was voted "Most Promising New Male Country Vocalist" by the prestigious Academy Of Country Music.

Freddy continued to perform and record with The Raiders; however the rigors of a duel career became too demanding, and after six years with The Raiders, He left them and moved back to Atlanta to pursue his first love - Country Music.

Freddy recorded 11 albums for Colombia Records, one for Abc/Dot Records and has over 30 highly charted  singles to his credit.  See his Career page.
