It's FreeSol, not Lysol!
Having already drawn attention to their progressive blend of hip-hop, rock, and soul with their debut single, "Hoodies On, Hats Low," Memphis-based quintet FreeSol are gearing up for the release of their debut album, No Rules this fall on Tennman/Interscope. The video features Justin Timberlake, who found the band (more on that in a second). JT also directed the clip, too!
Also, the song "Don't Give It Away" was heard over the closing credits of an episode of HBO's Entourage and is currently available for purchase on iTunes. FreeSol, which is Free (vocals/lyrics), Kickman Teddy (drums), Elliott Ives (guitar/vocals), Premo D'Anger (keyboards) and Charlie White (DJ), formed in 2003 when rapper Free decided to move beyond the basic "two turntables and a microphone" hip-hop formula.
The band had already developed a massive regional buzz in the South before being discovered by Memphis native Justin Timberlake, who saw them perform, signed them to his label Tennman Records and is among the producers (along with Jim Jonsin, Mike Elizondo and Cool & Dre) of their debut album, out later this year.
