Freeze-Tag is the musical creation of 24-year-old Cleveland, Ohio native Marcus Alan Ward. The self taught multi-instrumentalist spent his middle and high school days in and out of screamo and post-hardcore bands, later discovering and being exposed to jazz, soul, hip hop, electronic music, and more obscure sounds in college.
Ward began crafting music as Freeze-Tag in May of 2011 upon completion of college, and debuted his project with dance based single “Tidal Wave” in September 2011. Simultaneously giving himself and the world a birthday present, his debut EP WLDFLWR_HNY was released on his birthday in January 2012, garnering early buzz locally, nationally, and internationally. Freeze-Tag solidified his sound and building buzz with the release of ambient/post hip-hop hybrid single “Eskimo” in July 2012.
