Utterly captivated by Music since age 5, Grammy-nominated Recording Artist, Speaker, Producer, Composer and cross-platform Music Synergist Freddie Ravel began performing worldwide with Brazilian master Sergio Mendes by the age of 23. Shortly thereafter, Universal Music released his three top-charting solo albums including the #1 hit in America, “Sunny Side Up”.
Driven by his passion for applying music to life, his concert appearances span three decades across six continents. Awarded the title “Motivational Maestro” by the city of Los Angeles, his career includes producing, recording, performing and composing with Earth, Wind & Fire, Al Jarreau, Madonna, Prince, Quincy Jones, the Boston Pops and most recently, Rock legend, Carlos Santana.
In 2002, when Freddie identified the properties of Music as a core solution to the ever-increasing breakdown of listening and communication skills, “Tune Up to Success” was born. For the past decade, he presents his vibrant “keynote concerts” and peak performance events throughout the world based on Music as a multi-tasking power tool for the dynamics of business, innovation, sustainability and social networking.
As an expert on music and life integration, his media appearances include FOX, ABC, Deepak Chopra’s XM Sirius radio show and clients such as Andre Agassi, USC, NASA, Apple, Microsoft, Google and Citi.
He remains passionately committed to music’s role not only as entertainment but also, its’ deeper application to empowering and enhancing the human condition.
