Born and raised on Long Island, Freddy currently works as a professional songwriter/artist, writing songs that are strongly skewed towards the pop rock end of the spectrum. The past few years have shown countless licensing of Freddy's songs for TV and Film. Recent airings include "Burn Notice" on USA, "Abandoned" on NGC, "Dark Blue" on TNT, "Moonlight" on CBS, "Side Order Of Life" on The Lifetime Channel and over a dozen airings on "The Young And The Restless" on CBS. Monday also co-wrote the title track to the 2011 Sunset Pictures film "Born To Ride" with Vin Alfieri from Deetown Entertainment. On his latest album "Everything Anyhow" his instinct for melody and ear for hooks truly shine as he takes listeners on a colorful journey of his life. This record follows his successful debut "Words In Pencil". On "Everything Anyhow" Freddy works with Grammy award winning producer/engineer Steven Rinkoff (Jim Steinman, Celine Dion, Meat Loaf) and multi-platinum engineer Paul Umbach (Jive Records, Matt White). The video for the song "Please" captures a feel for NYC and was filmed in Chelsea. 2011 also brought the re-release of Freddy's "I Want To Be Your Davy Jones" album on 5x5 Records out of Nashville. Davy Jones of The Monkees makes a colorful cameo in a 60's mod themed video for Freddy's novelty rocker which received play on VH1. Monday capped off a busy 2011 with his first UK National spin on BBC Radio 2 with the warm merry holiday treat "Christmastime Is Coming".
