Get ready for a funk party anthem. Today marks the release of “Love In Your Pocket” composed and performed by renowned funk bassist Freekbass and Turkuaz vocalist Sammi Garett. The track was produced by GRAMMY Award winner Itaal Shur and features additional vocals by Lonnie “Meganut” Marshall.
The song is an upbeat two stepper with gritty groove, catchy vocals, and retro synth sounds reminiscent of funk masters like Prince, Parliament Funkadelic, and Zapp.
“Love In Your Pocket” is the first in a collection of singles due out later this year from Cincinnati Ohio native Chris “Freekbass” Sherman.
Freekbass comments, “‘Love In Your Pocket’ is one of those songs that popped into my consciousness very naturally. I was playing the main bass groove and was thinking about how you can be addicted to a person, your art, a passion etc. Like having the person or passion having you wrapped around their finger. You become the ‘Love In their Pocket”’ .
A funk bass master, Freekbass is known for his technical virtuosity and dynamic live performances. Legendary funk icon Bootsy Collins calls Freekbass "The new Spiritual Warrior for the Funk".
Freekbass will be performing with Garrett at this year’s Summer Camp festival in Chicago, IL on Saturday May 26th
