SINGLE Gone Mad - MUSIC VIDEO here:
Frank Palangi an indie-rock recording artist is freshly homegrown in Upstate New York who pures the fuel on the genre that refuses to die. Whether it's raw acoustic or full driving electric guitar, the presence is a feeding frenzy with gravelly, deep n gritty, vibrato vocals. Leaving it all on the stage with no looking back, his positive outlook is from his upbringing taught him that one doesn't give up no matter however long it takes. Finding music from the age of 13, he taught himself guitar, bass, drums, recording, mixing with a rounded style that tips the hat on the past 30 year evolution of the 80s & 90s rock & post grunge movement mixed with a taste of heavy metal."I was a shy kid with health issues growing up and music helped shape my mind to think before you leap. I wasn't going for the typical drinking, partying, smashing hotel rooms lol as the rocker lifestyle is believed to be. I could be something different in that element to stand out positivity." -FP
(BRING ON THE FEAR EP - 2020)
"After my 2017 "SET ME FREE EP" I was doing a lot of shows/opening slots and getting into more of the recording side which lead me to a year and half experience with producing,mixing and writing the 4th installment. I progressed and learned so much through that time through books, videos and interviews about mixing and with some upgrades to my home studio. The songs I always knew would be apart of the same CD double EP had to be similar but still new and exciting vs I Am Ready CD (2013). I teamed up with few of my favorites to work with from Lester Estelle (kelly clarkson) - Brian Craddock and Brandon Maclin from Daughtry for some studio work. I had self produced a single or two before but always working with producers and mixers on my main EP"s, this really made me step up and think about the whole process a lot more. This is more gritty and heavier than the "I AM Ready" release. No reason for it, just led me in that direction with the love of heavy rock. With my wide variety of influences, I did somethin more constant. "
2020 marks a new COVID unknown path in the music industry but ever so determined Palangi is still accomplishing goals as he says "I had no plan in backing down on my dreams", marks his life's mission statement. Seeing the start of Youtube and the rise of social platforms, it changed the field of how to get music out and Frank worked on being on top that game. If things took longer than expected, then it's meant to be he believes, but still with having an admirable stubbornness to his tenacity of not giving up. The big choke in the music business is that you think you'll become an over night success fast, that's not the case. He saw the business side mixed with the passion, relentless work, rejection, and a bit of extra faith.
