Nick of Time
Placed on an offering table for her first "big solo" at the tender age of two, it is no surprise that Esperanza Freeze may have been 'born to sing.' Growing up in church, Esperanza's love for music was developed and nurtured at an early age. In fact, her gifts dominated her life from as early as she can recall and her exceptional talent has not gone unnoticed. She has sung for, recorded with, opened for Yolanda Adams, Kindred the Family Soul, Case, Canton Jones, Shirley Caesar, Dottie Peoples, Melinda Doolittle, The Canton Spirituals, Karen Clark-Sheard, and Vickie Winans. She appears on Gold and Platinum selling albums from 95 South, The 69 Boys, and The Quad City DJ's. She considers herself fortunate to have had the opportunities that she's been given to work with accomplished producer, Veit Renn, Joe Smith, Bob Katz, Stephen "Toby" Lewis, and many other great talents on this project. As a gifted singer/songwriter/producer, she has been compared to Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and Jill Scott to name a few. Esperanza is definitely 'one to watch.' But it is her own unique brand of "Inspirational Soul", mixed with passionate vocals and candid lyrics that make Esperanza's sound all her own. "Nick of Time" is a collection that includes moving declarations like "Survive" and "Incomplete" along with heavy-hitting testimonials like "Tell It" and the title track "Nick Of Time." Her artistry is honest and inspiring and with the personal testimony to support every lyric, Esperanza is a real artist with a real message set to real music in a world where that can often be hard to find.
