      "There are certain CDs that we have in our collections, that we can listen to, over and over, to uplift us.  Louis Apollon has written such a CD.  Free To Be is eleven originals that mostly focus on stories of positive and inspiring content.  'Delianne' is named after his grandmother and his lyrics paint a powerful, and loving image of her.  'Take Your Time' applies to all of us, in it's message to slow down, breathe and enjoy life. Louis is on guitar and vocals, Achal Murthy on bass, Kaushlesh 'Garry' Purohit and Daniel Feldman on percussion, Christian Bechtol on drum kit, RJ Waters on keys, Aleif Hamdan and Yoel Genin on electric guitar, Billy Yang on alto sax and flute, Pedro Moreno on tenor sax and Cosimo Boni on trumpet.  
      There is an immediate, natural flow of musical ideas and synchronicity in Louis' group. Together, they create a magnificent body of music that will keep you riveted and inspired. His powerful and positive message continues when he is off stage while chatting with people. We need his stories of love, peace, tolerance and joy in the simplicity of living a life where we are loved by those around us.  The amazing rhythms of this talented group will have you on your feet or singing out loud, in your car."
