FRANKIE RAYE, SINGER/SONGWRITER

(Frankie Raye) has a lovely voice and great stage presence. She sang a number of very nice original songs, and then delivered the best — by far —version of “No Diggity” I have ever heard. Truly spectacular. ”

Project Name

Accompanying her powerful voice and wide vocal range with guitar, Frankie Raye is a singer/ songwriter based out of Tampa, FL. In 2016 she released her debut album, “A Thing or Two About a Dream”. Her new album, “Brave”, is targeted for release in January 2019. Her music is a collection of thoughtful and witty songs delivered through catchy and up-beat melodies, with hints of 1970s folk and 1990's acoustic-coffee-shop music. Her songs are infused with tongue-in-cheek lyrics that are reminiscent of the artists that inspired her when she was young – she has been compared to Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Joni Mitchell, and Melanie. She has been featured on ABC and CBS affiliate news programs, as well various radio shows that regularly play her music. Performing an average of 5 to 6 shows a week, she has performed at over 100 venues around, including performances at Tropicana Field, Steinbrenner Field, and the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa. Other notable performances include the NAMM show in Anaheim CA (2018 & 2019), and various locations in New Orleans, LA. Adopting followers at every show she plays, her music has gained attention from listeners all across the U.S - she has even made online CD sales in Europe. Her music is available for purchase through several online retailers, including CD Baby, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Mp3. She can also be found on various streaming sites, such as Spotify and iHeartradio.
