Positive Driving Rock Artist
“I have no plan b on backing down on my dreams.”
Palangi fuels a feeding frenzy of contemporary rock. It’s like a high end sports car combining with a solid 1970 Muscle Car. He has an old school kick sense to him but he’s not copying any one sound off the bat. At the core is a singer/songwriter with a unique bass rock voice pouring his heart and soul in to his lyrics. With a positive image and a fresh take on the genre, it’s exciting to see he’s not afraid to take a few chances with his music. From being a multi-instrumentalist and fueling his own productions, his creativity, drive and passion for music is always running.
With a discography ranging from 4 demo records (Another Round, Falling too, I’m Waiting, Singles) in Frank’s teen years to his current independent EP records (Frank Palangi EP, I Am Ready EP) and new single “Hope”, fans know they can look for new music being developed and released. What would be the next step for Palangi? His first signed national record release under a label…

I believe there are tough challenges in our of lives that we must face and being able to for my music to have an effect, it’s all I could ask for out of it. Growing up, I dealt with childhood medical issues and learning to adapt and overcome challenges are what somehow let me reroute illness into a strength and gave me the passion, determination and will not give up.

Fate stepped in catching the ears of Grammy nominated band “DAY OF FIRE” while attending a local club performance in 2010. Few days later, their producer Rogers Masson made contact with Frank and soon after began production on the debut “FRANK PALANGI EP” 2011. The sessions held in music center of the world, Nashville, TN. Rogers said, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance of singer Josh Brown (Full Devil Jacket), Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing.” After a few months in the studio, the release was finished and mastered by Mult-Grammy Award winner Gavin Lurssen. Frank says "The album for me grew my sound into the place where it needed to be, steering it toward mainstream rock. I had so much fun going down to TN for my first time to the music mecca, meeting people and being absorbed in the culture. It gave me the platform to stand on my feet and begin flight."
