Currently residing in the world that flits between breakthrough and underground, Franko Fraize has an impressive legacy of music and musical achievements to his name. For those that know him, they love him and for those yet to discover him lays a world of future fans.
Franko Fraize drops his new single and official video ‘Side By Side’, featuring Alex Joseph, and epitomizes Franko’s music. When describing soul music, this is what it must mean, as the song will reach in to your own very soul ‘with bold disposition, giving perspective, empathy and understanding’. Franko connects with the listeners on an edgy but soulful and rhythmic, up-beat instrumental that reflects his charismatic charm.
British colloquialisms and familiar tones are the vehicle for a deeper message of growth and the reminder of what really counts in life, even when the chips are down.
Drawing comparisons to Mike Skinner and The Streets, Franko Fraize’s music could be described as Lad Rap. That gives him more authenticity and likability, from his style and sound, and that he is representative of the lad around town.
To date, Franko has performed at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape Tramlines and more, plus he has also toured with Mike Skinner and Rudimental. He’s ticked off a prestigious Maida Vale session for the BBC and has released records with Fred V & Grafix via Hospital Records as well as featuring on the newly released Loadstar album.
