Based in Johnson City, Tennessee, Freddy Apple is a children's music and novelty song sensation, global influencer, fashion icon, and motivational dancer. Based on their interests, he writes rock songs for his two young children, Freddy Apple Jr. and Honeycrisp, which he then shares with the world. This '80s-inspired, unorthodox-dancing family music artist is an alter ego of multi-instrumentalist, Chris Martland. Given Martland’s love of '80s music and culture, as well as his being born in 1982, it was logical for his alter ego to possess an '80s persona. Inspired by his firstborn child, his 10-song debut album, Dance with Freddy!, was released in June 2021.
