While not as popular as the movies with his namesake starring Matt Damon, New Jersey native Freddie Bourne has made a name for himself in his roots in the Northeast and beyond. After joining two successful high school bands Sahara and Exit 22, with the latter being signed to indie label Jersey Boy Records, Bourne performed on stages from The Saint, The Starland Ballroom and The Stone Pony before moving onto a solo career in 2012 opening up for Tyler Hilton, Teddy Geiger and Dion Roy and performing at The National Underground, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, the Special Olympics USA Games and WAMFest! At Fairleigh Dickinson University.
His first solo album, “Only Human” debuted in 2013, followed by the experimental EP “I Wrote These Songs with Heavy Vibes and a Piano” in 2017 and moved onto performing at venues in the Hoboken and New York City region including Maxwell’s, The Bitter End and SideWalk Cafe.
Upon moving to the Midwest, Bourne has since released three additional projects, with his 2020 release “The Troubled Boy at the Bonfire Disco” receiving acclaim from critics in Australia, Germany and the United States. Bourne continued to perform live, receiving offers to play at Texas Indie Fest at South By Southwest (SXSW), Owensboro’s Friday After 5 and multiple local and countryside festivals.
Bourne is due to release his new project “Abandoned Gospel” in late 2023.
