Beginning with his 60’s group The Grodes/Tongues of Truth, Manny Freiser (also known as Ian Messenger during the 80's and 90's) has been part of the music culture for over 30 years. His new album "History" shares that experience through his music.
Online PR News – 09-November-2009 – – Northridge, California, November 9, 2009 – Freiser’s career began forming when he learned a few chords and received favorable reactions from girls in his high school class. He had noticed the reaction that Artists such as Elvis Presley and Ricky Nelson received and wanted to take part in that. “I saw them swoon when Elvis laid on his back and strummed guitar. More importantly, I saw them swoon when Ricky Nelson sang in his dreamy monotone. I say "more importantly" because Elvis' talent was clearly out of my reach. On the other hand, if Ricky could do it, so could I”, said Freiser.
His music spans over three decades and possesses a great deal of variation in writing and recording approaches. His story is one of a long time musician and music lover who has been one final step away from stardom. The result is a deep and honest vibe that shows in his music. Freiser has experienced the music industry like few Artists have. A deep understanding of the creative and business side of the music industry is prevalent in his work. Freiser spans many different genres and creating a truly unique feel with deep meaning and texture. His music is self-recorded using Pro Tools and Mac Pro in his home studio. He is hoping that his album “History” will not only be a groundbreaking album for him, but a glimpse into his career leading up to this moment.
"Recording before ProTools was an anxious process of hurrying (because of studio cost), being harried by producers. engineers and others telling you what you couldn't or shouldn't do, and then obsessing about the inevitable imperfections in the final product. But sitting back and listening to all of the early stuff now -- from here -- all of that garbage recedes. I hear the tracks with more affection and acceptance, less second-guessing than I did before.”, said Freiser. He further explained, “Finally, I better understand the context of what happened in the past. and realize that now, at least to some extent, I have control over my own destiny.”
