Freddie Ravel – Music Applied To Life

Ravel

Utterly captivated by Music since age 5, Freddie Ravels’ talent took him from prodigy to a World-renowned Pianist, Composer, Recording Artist and Multi-Media Executive. His passion for bridging communication through Music propelled him to two decades of international acclaim and the creation of Tune Up to Success ®, an unprecedented interactive program that presents Music as a perfect metaphor for the dynamics of business and social networking.

Completing his Music degree cum laude, Freddie began performing around the World with Brazilian icon Sergio Mendes when Universal Records discovered and quickly signed the young artist. This resulted in a series of sensual and fiery albums: Midnight Passion, Sol to Soul & Freddie Ravel-charting #1 in the US. Embraced by his many fans, his songs continue to receive extensive radio airplay and garner critical acclaim: “Freddie’s blend of jazz textures, rock energy, tropical rhythms and charismatic performance style are sure pop-jazz crossovers.” – Los Angeles Times.

Establishing Ravelation Media Group in 1990, as CEO his reputation as a multi-faceted Producer, Artist & Composer soared to the top echelons of the music industry with the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire and Al Jarreau under Freddie’s directorship. Subsequent invitations from Madonna led to their joint MTV appearances and featured Freddie’s sizzling piano solo in Madonna’s remix of Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.

Freddie’s lifelong commitment to raise human potential through Music gave birth to a powerful interactive performance event in 2002, which he named Tune Up to Success ®. Performing this interactive program nationwide, to live audiences ranging from teens & young adults to Fortune 500 Companies, Freddie connected new Music Creation by everyday people to their personal and professional lives utilizing a process he called InTuneition™.
