American rock veterans Jean Beauvoir and Micki Free, the duo who shook the bones of the rock world in the early ‘90s with their Interscope Records Crown of Thorns debut album featuring drumming by the late, great Tony Thompson (Chic, Bowie, Led Zeppelin) and caused quite the stir throughout the industry due to a fierce bidding war are reuniting for a new album as Beauvoir/Free!

One of their last performances together was in 2009 at Hard Rock Calling (London) with Bruce Springsteen and Dave Matthews, but fans of Beauvoir and Free can rejoice for upcoming joint appearances…

Outside of Crown Of Thorns, their collective credits read like a “Who’s-Who”, Rock ’n Roll, hall of fame since Beauvoir and Free parted ways.

Famed for his blond Mohawk whilst an original member of the Plasmatics, Beauvoir has played bass and guitar with Steve Van Zandt’s Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul. He was then signed by Richard Branson to Virgin and went on to pursue an International, Multi-platinum solo career, including the worldwide hit “Feel The Heat”, the featured song for Sylvester Stallone’s 'Cobra’ film. He later formed and fronted Voodoo X and continued to lead and record a further five albums with Crown Of Thorns after Free’s departure from the group.

Beauvoir has produced and written for The Ramones, KISS, Debbie Harry, The Pretenders, John Waite, Lionel Richie, N’Sync; appeared on over 100 albums over the past two decades contributing to the sales of 40 million albums including recent #1 works as writer/producer and his film music credits are endless, with Cobra, Pet Semetary, Flawless, Christmas With The Kranks, Rock’n’Roll High School Forever and School of Rock; not to mention tours and live performances with Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Tina Turner, Aerosmith, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen and more!

Grammy Award winner and international Multi-platinum recording artist Micki Free continued to tour the world and record and perform with his own projects after his departure from Crown of Thorns. Famously discovered by none other than Gene Simmons of KISS, Free was a member of the R&B super group Shalamar who spawned countless top ten hits, including the “Dancing In The Sheets” from Footloose.

Micki Free has since performed, written and/or recorded with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bill Wyman, Carlos Santana, Cindy Blackman-Santana, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS, and Prince to name but a few.

Beauvoir and Free both coincidently moved back to LA in 2003 and re-connected. They discussed joining forces again for a new project, but due to other commitments, only some demo recording sessions happened and a one off show at Hard Rock Calling at Hyde Park UK. Beauvoir/Free were scheduled for a short run acoustic tour of the UK and Scandinavia. The UK was postponed, but the Scandinavian shows moved forward successfully.

May 9th, 2014 Frontiers Records – home to Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Journey, Toto, Yes, Chicago and many other legendary rock groups, announced the signing of Beauvoir/Free for a new album, due out worldwide 2015!

Stay tuned for release date and upcoming tour dates 2014/2015! Be sure to watch for the interview on Lingua Musica Live with host Joe Kendrick.

We hope you enjoy the presentation:
