Franki Love is a singer-songwriter who lives partly in Los Angeles and partly in New York. She has been nominated and won awards for her work and also composes music for TV shows, video games and movies! Not bad for the lady who started performing in local coffee shops to try and attract attention to her amazing talent.
Franki released her self-titled album in 2007 which includes her hit song "Shadow" which was voted Single of the Year at the L.A. Music Awards (in which she also won "Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year"!). The album also includes "Love Like It's Never Gonna Hurt" which won best song from Songwriter Universe. I also love the song "Angel Kisses" on this album.
Franki has a beautiful breathy, sultry vocal that is such a pure sound, and with either guitar or piano backing it creates a really lovely sound. Hard to pinpoint who she sounds like so I won't make any comparisons, sometimes that's a good thing. I would possibly say there is a little Michelle Branch, Cyndi Lauper, and Susanna Hoffs but that would not do her unique voice justice.
Franki will be releasing a new album soon, entitled "Otias", funding the album via Kickstarter and dedicated to her mother, who sadly passed away in 2013. Franki also donates time to the non-profit organisation Soldier's Angels. This lady is sure to hit it globally soon, this talented, hard working lady should get her rewards.
