Frankie Forman is a singer/songwriter from London. Frankie started out singing in the bars and cafes around Paris’ romantic Montmartre aged just eighteen, before returning to London a few years later to start two bands in the city. She decided to go solo at the end of 2013 and hasn’t looked back since.
With her husky tones often compared to Lana Del Rey and Mazzy Star, and her musical influences being the likes of Billie Holliday, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Leonard Cohen, Peggy Lee, Tom Waits and Portishead, Frankie’s sound marks the dark place where Trip Hop, Soul and Bluesy Rock n Roll meet, all with undeniable Deep South tint to it.
Frankie Forman left her own mark on the emerging music scene, releasing her inaugural ‘Blue Dogs’ EP in 2014. Last year she released ‘Hootch’, a second stunning EP and sold out its launch party at the equally stunning St Pancras Old Church in London. She has performed at festivals such as Isle of Wight, Camp Bestival, Blissfields, Leefest, Danny Boyle's Shuffle Festival and Boomtown to astounding reception.
She has also gone on to do a number of high profile support tours; supporting fellow upcoming bands Feverist, Bella Figura and Willie and the Bandits in London as well as playing dates and a homecoming show with The South, joining Alabama 3 for their UK tour and supporting Beans On Toast at Electric Ballroom on home turf in Camden. In December 2015.
Having premiered a new video for single ‘Sleaze’ in October, completed a three-month residency upstairs at the iconic Ronnie Scott’s for famous indie night TV Nights and working on her debut album for 2016, this year looks to be a killer for the sultry chanteuse.
