Singer-songwriter Frankie Wesson started writing songs and performing in her hometown of Abergavenny at the age of 16. Her cinematic songs draw inspiration from her personal experiences of bitter-sweet nostalgia, unrequited love, teenage angst and the complicated reality of growing up LGBT.
Raised on artists like Alanis Morisette, Eva Cassidy and Stevie Nicks (who her guitar is named after). Frankie Wesson also takes inspiration from a mix of contemporary artists such as Deaf Havana, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Gabrielle Aplin. Producing intimate, emotionally raw, yet laid-back music with a pop/folk/rock feel. Her versatile vocal range and talent for emotive, relatable song writing makes for captivating live performances and songs that’ll soon become part of your musical diet.
Frankie’s original songs have been featured on BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing as well as Spotify’s ‘Chilled Pop Hits’ and ‘New Music Friday’ playlists. The electro-pop single ‘Reasons’ from her latest album ‘Still Got Time’ has had over 110,000 Spotify streams since its release last year.
Swansea’s Soundboard magazine described Frankie Wesson’s music as ‘timeless; appealing to fans of Fleetwood Mac and Paramore alike without compromising or diluting any of the style that makes Wesson’s music her own…an album that is more than the sum of it’s parts’.
