Growing up and listening to country music has left a definite imprint on Frankie’s voice, shaping both her sound and the style of songs she writes. She may be inspired by Country and Americana, but it is her own take on it and not an imitation.
Frankie has visited Nashville on many occasions to write and perform, once notably with Radio 2’s Bob Harris. Frankie was one of just 3 UK artists selected to represent BBC Introducing in Nashville at the Americana Music Festival. She was also invited back in 2016 to perform at an international showcase held at one of the worlds biggest Country events, The CMA Festival.
A seasoned performer Frankie has toured the UK and Europe with some of the biggest names in Country music including Maddie and Tae, Chris Young, Charlie Worsham, Mo Pitney and Josh Kelley. Closer to home Frankie has appeared a few times at the UK’s biggest Country Music Festival C2C, toured with the UK Country duo The Shires, and completed her first headline tour in 2017 which included both the UK and Germany.
In 2015 Frankie released her debut EP ‘Dancing All Night’ out of which came 3 singles, critical praise and national airplay. In early 2017 she began work on her debut album which she has recorded in Nashville, Liverpool and London. With its release imminent, ‘Wherever I Go’ is an album delicately laced through with country influences whilst retaining a very rocky edge, it fully represents who Frankie is as an artist, performer and songwriter.
