Frankie is a British singer – songwriter, born in St. Albans, now residing in South London. Having grown up surrounded by a healthy variety of wonderful music, and a large musically minded family, who were encouraged to get involved from a young age (which predominantly meant singing in the church choir) Frankie inevitably has inherent musical tendencies!
Writing and performing songs has been a long-standing ambition, though only recently is it coming into fruition. Frankie’s writing is best described as poetry with music, as apposed to a more conventional ‘song writing’ format. Frankie finds enjoyment in a wide range of music, and therefore her influences stretch far! From the likes of ‘Thomas Wesley Stern’, to ‘Arvo Part’, with a whole lot else in between! The writing itself is very personal – a tool for deciphering, and an attempt at understanding life experiences. A self-taught guitar player, her technical approach is like that of a pianist. Chords are not ‘strummed’, but pulled apart and picked. A love of harmony with both voice and guitar ensures a song is not complete without either instrument.
