Growing up in a strong Italian family in the Bay Area of California, Lemmo spent every night at the dinner table listening to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Bobby Darin and Tony Bennett. He was fascinated by the way they sang and as he grew so did his love and appreciation of their artistry. By age five Lemmo was gathering crowds as he sang requests at a quarter a song.
Although, never formally trained, Lemmo has a finesse in his voice which would have you thinking otherwise. Like all crooners, Lemmo’s instrument is his microphone using it to have each audience member believe that he was singing directly to them.
Lemmo has self-produced three cds in association with Shattered Records and has had ties with Sony Music.
He married his sweetheart, Sarah Holloway, in the Fall of 2015 and they now reside in Idaho where Sarah teaches at local high school while Freddy studies Public Relations; although, it is the music industry in which he ultimately aspires to pursue.
