A solo artist bringing this debut EP into the mainstream with new music that is a creative sonic blend of rock styles that remolds his sound, thought-provoking lyrics, while offering great melodies and arrangement for the modern audience.
Frank headed in to the studio with veteran record producer Rogers Masson to record his debut EP. The sessions were held in music center of the world, Nashville, TN at Soundstage Studios. Frank has written, performed, and co-produced this material which brings out the talented young man to a wider audience. Rogers secured the Grammy nominated rock band Day of Fire and former Full Devil Jacket to backup Frank in the studio. Rogers says, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance of singer Josh Brown, Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing.” Frank also Co-produced the album as well.
As a writer, he says he focuses on creating songs people will want to hear over and over again. And nostalgia, he believes, is also an important facet of songwriting. “Music should be entertainment. The more you listen, the more you want,” Palangi said. “It's all about revisiting songs and remembering when you heard them in a certain time of your life – almost like a photo album.”
His constant playing (and constant writing, recording, promoting too) are signs of his passion for music – something he believes is required for someone to be truly accomplished as a musical artist. “If you want to play music, it must be a passion and a drive. Practice is the key to getting better. I have no plan B in my quest in my career, this is what I want to do the rest of my life. Also songs need to bring a certain personality to them, a character so to speak. Every track is for me with personal meanings and the meaning of the listener."
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise and knock you off your course on to your heartfelt passion. I have no plan B in my path toward my career and always hard at work."

"The hard-rocking “I’m Waiting” and softer, acoustic ballad “Love” are standout tracks. Palangi’s years of constant playing, writing and recording has paid off, but it’s his passion for music that has gotten him where he is." (GuitarWorld Mag
