FRANKIE RAYE, SINGER/SONGWRITER
Welcome to the EPK of Frankie Raye
(I love a good rhyme)
All images are downloadable. Music is available wherever you stream/purchase, but to provide an link right here for everyone, I embedded a few tracks from Soundcloud. Of course, I threw in some Youtube videos as well (I mean, this is an electronic press kit, right?), but you can find even more on my official Youtube channel. (Or, on the homepage of this website… but those are just there for the ones who may be too impatient to click the “EPK” link). Same with photos. Anyway, enjoy the current progress of my life's work… all on one page within the vast and unforgiving sea that is the internet.
Recording artist Frankie Raye knows only one direction – forward. The profile of the Florida-based singer, songwriter, and guitar player has continued to rise as she performs on notable stages and continues to work on original music. Her music has gained attention from independent media outlets across the U.S, Europe, and Australia, including podcasts, independent radio stations, and both online and televised news variety programs. Many have called her lyrics witty and tongue-in-cheek; while some have viewed her music as self-indulgent, nonsensical, and “too wordy”. But, in pure Frankie Raye fashion, she continues to write and perform in the exact way that she intends to: with pure and unapologetic honesty.
2023 began with Frankie being invited to perform in April at the New York Songwriter's Circle, hosted at the legendary Bitter End in New York City. This was only within a few short months from when she’d been invited to perform at both the prestigious Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival, and the Pensacola Beach Songwriter's Festival, where she captivated a sold-out audience at the famous Flora-Bama.
In addition to performing shows regularly across the southeastern United States, she has also travelled far west, performing year after year at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, Ca., and headlining her own showcases at the House of Blues in Disneyland. Although she has taken her music across the country on several occasions, she performs regularly at her home base in Tampa Bay, making appearances at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the Florida State Fairgrounds, and numerous sporting events.
Her latest single, “Foot in Mouth”, was released in the spring of 2023, and has continued to get airplay on independent stations across the U.S. The single has almost seen almost as much success as her 2020 single, “Theodora”, which made the final rounds in several songwriting competitions (Songwriters Guild of America, Indie International Songwriters Network, NewSong, Indie International Music Awards); received positive reviews from European music journals (Northern Revive, InYourEars Music); and is a fan favorite at her shows. She values the Artist relationships she has with G7th Capos, Mogami Cables, and Elite Acoustics.
Her career continues its rapid rise. Keep up with her if you can at www.FrankieRaye.com and follow her @FrankieRayeMusic on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. Her music is available through Apple Music, Spotify, and major online digital retailers.
