Freddy began writing music at a young age, picking out melodies on a Casio keyboard as he sat out on the fire escape in Harlem. He released his first album, "The New York Chapter," in 2011.
After receiving a Master's degree in film scoring, he apprenticed with composer Ron Jones (Star Trek, Family Guy). Projects include music for Regional Emmy-nominated documentary "Senior Year Was Crazy" (2020) and "28 Grams," (2023) currently being submitted to festivals.
Freddy composes and arranges for bands and orchestras, and is interested in collaborating on projects for symphony, film, and video games.
Freddy Fuego's second studio album presents his signature sound, melding influences from hip-hop, reggae, funk, rock, and orchestral music to create an innovative musical exploration.
