The Free Label came to us as finalists during the Mariposa Showcase 2018 for up and coming artists. From the very beginning, these fine young men were professional, poised and a breeze to work with. But it was during their performances on the Mariposa stages when they really shone. They engaged the audiences, collaborated easily with other musicians, and gave the audience their very best. They were the performers who first kicked off the festival on Friday, and they were also the final act closing out our Sunday night Pub Tent. They always came through with youthful energy. They'd be a great addition to any festival.

The Free Label performed at a recent secret, invite-only Sofar Sounds Waterloo concert that my team and I hosted at Terminal.io, a tech firm located in the penthouse suite of one of Kitchener-Waterloo's original high-rises. I've hosted hundreds of artists in shows like this, and have rarely had one come close to filling the room with as much energy as quickly as the Free Label did. By their second song, the band had the entire audience up on their feet dancing along. Talented, classy, and incredibly polished, this is a band made up of great showmen and even better musicians with songs that everyone can vibe with. We'd be happy to have them for another show any time soon.”
