Marshall Freeman's music career began befopre he even graduated Johnson and Wales University — while he was still a student, he helped choreograph Redman and Sisqo concerts, and coordinate MTV Video Music Awards and Super Bowls!
Now, as president and CEO, Creative Music Group Inc., Marshall manages artists he believes will change music.“My vision for the future of entertainment is getting music back to when it was true and authentic,” Marshall says. He’s helping Seba, City of God, Elijah King and other bands make that happen.“If you can align yourself with artists you truly believe in, the so-called work is the easy part.”Your music career milestone? Signing my first artist to a recording label. This was a huge accomplishment. Favorite JWU memory? Helping to plan university events and activities. Welcome Week and Homecoming were always my favorite. Who’s your career guru? Managers like Johnny Wright, who has really paved the way with his branding, marketing and corporate structure. How do you balance life and work? I am very fortunate to be doing my ultimate dream job, while making a living. I find excitement and joy in doing what I love the most: music.
