Frankie Spano is a singer-songwriter from the Baltimore-Washington suburbs who uses her unique voice to give life to the songs that she writes. Incorporating a fresh blend of folk, pop, alt-rock, and just a hint of jazz, her interestingly catchy melodies will have her lyrics stuck in your head for days.
Frankie has been using her voice to sing since she was old enough to speak, blessing her parents with a three year old who could not just speak, but sing to them about everything she did. She has dabbled in the art of songwriting for many years, writng her first "hit single" (for her family and friends) at seven years old, entitled "How Am I Supposed to Know". Once she had a taste for the art of songwriting, it was impossible for her to stop. She began taking guitar lessons at 12 to have some other instrument to write for, but lost interest after learning enough chords to sing along to: she really just wanted some acoustic accompaniment for her songwriting.
As far as her singing career, she joined her first official band during her freshman year of high school, named Stockcar Syndrome. They wrote original music, released an EP, played many shows in the Baltimore area, and gave Frankie a wonderful first experience in the music industry. Upon leaving, she left the world of bands and "gigs" and began participating in various choirs, including Maryland's All State Choir, as well as her high school's Madrigal Chamber Choir. In college, she joined an a cappella group, Faux Paz, and learned even more about songwriting through arranging music in the group. This group also taught her the importance of keeping a community of musical people in your life, regardless of what stage you're in. She has taken her experiences from all of these groups and channeled them, over time, into her music via style, genre and techniques used.
The time has finally come for Frankie to be on her own- no band or choir to hide behind. She is ready for people to finally hear her own sound, carefully cultivated through years of writing and experiences that have led her to the person she is today. Her songs are her stories, constructed to shield her loved ones from the vulnerability of reality. She only asks that you listen to her stories with an open mind.
