Lance got to meet “the Killer,” Jerry Lee in 2003 and has been paying tribute to him ever since with high energy piano playing, fantastic showmanship, and clever surprise pyro effects that make the piano really sizzle on “Great Balls of Fire.”
While other kids were doing their homework, Lance was studying his dad’s record collection of people like Elvis, Roy Orbison, and his hero, Jerry Lee Lewis. These strong convictions for the past consumed his lifestyle and dedicated his career to the modern underground Rockabilly movement. Now at age 24, this Texas native combines these styles in his own original music similar to early rock ‘n’ roll, classic country and even a touch of 1960’s pop. His energetic live shows have led him all over the world, even to making his national television debut at the original Ryman Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.

For the past 8 years Freddy B. has performed all over the USA and Canada making new fans along the way. From the moment he hits the stage you can feel the excitement of the crowd and the energy of his performance that makes his audience come alive.
Born and raised my whole life in the Nashville area and into a family of 7 kids, music was always a huge part of all our lives especially growing up with a father that was a die- hard Marty Robbins fan and who loved to listen to any song with a great story.
My musical start happened roughly around 2001 when I entered a local talent contest and won. That contest led to getting offers from Agents representing the Opryland Hotel here in Nashville and then and offer for a steady headliner show for the Gibson Guitar Showcase Theater that lasted for nearly 2 years. Since 2001, I have performed 100’s of live shows all over the USA and Canada.
Now I spend most of my free time writing songs and creating the Demo’s for these songs in the studio. The new song “She Only Bitches When She Breathes” was written purely as a joke because I would hear my friends over-exaggerate how bad their wives complained and the title and the structure of the song came to mind very quickly.
