BIO

Frankynero is a soulful r&b singer, producer, songwriter, and a Born Again Christian.

 

His musical style is a fusion of gospel lyrics and hot circular beats.  His strategy is taking the word of God to the unreachable with the hope of reaching those who are - not interested in church, don't like and may never listen to gospel music and who definitely are not interested in hearing a sermon.

 

Music was always a part of Frankynero's life.   As a young boy growing up he was deeply into soul and some pop music. His earliest influences were Michael Bolton, Toni Braxton and Michael Jackson.

For Frankynero music wasn't just lyrics with beats and nice vocals - music was his soul food. He had different songs for every situation and mood whether good or bad. Whenever there was an opportunity he would sing to entertain friends and family even standing in front of his classmates and singing to them just for the fun of it. 

As result of performing at the Millennium Awards in 2012 at their year-end celebration Frankynero received a sponsorship deal to run a music school for young people. It was at this same performance he also earned his first professional singing contract at the famous 93 Feet East Club in East London singing and performing with some of the UK's finest DJ's. He has also performed at the Herbal Club and some of the other biggest clubs in London.

In 2003 Frankynero was selected to represent Southwark Council in the “Battle of the Boroughs” talent competition, which was held at The Ocean Venue. In the same year Millennium Awards recommended him to the Round House music company. He worked as a vocal tutor for Roundhouse teaching in schools

In 2008 Franynero was invited to perform as a supporting act for Muyiwa in Bristol, which at the time was the biggest highlight of his career. 

He has worked and performed with the London African Gospel Choir. Their performances included the Peoples Day Festival in Lewisham, the Royal Albert Museum, recording a radio ad for Sony Ericsson mobile phone company, recording for the BBC.  They sang live on ITV's James Cordon World Cup Live, interviewed live on Premier Radio, performed for a 4 day concert at Earls Court and also provided the backing vocals for Channel 4's Comedy Gala which featured most of the biggest names in British comedy.

In 2012 Frankynero launched an album "If It Had Not Been".  He organised a concert at Croydon Conference Centre, which was surprisingly well attended. In the same year he performed at Croydon Gospel Festival and also performed the backing vocals for the finalists of The Gospel talent show "Time to Shine".

In late 2012 Frankynero fell seriously ill with the doctors unable to diagnose the cause of his illness. He spent weeks in hospital and didn't know whether he was going to come out again, he started to give up on his music, but to God Be The Glory he came back, and since coming back he's been actively writing and producing for his next album. 

Frankynero performed again with the London African Gospel Choir in 2014 on Vox Africa and even managed to perform one of his greatest tracks "Peace”.

Again with the London African Gospel Choir in 2015 they provided the backing vocals for a couple of Sony signed artists and Mahogany Sessions filmed one session.

Additionally in 2015 Frankynero had the chance to perform backing vocals for Mumford and Sons and Emile Sande
