NO PLAN B
Positive Driving Rock Artist
With an old school kick, Palangi fuels a feeding frenzy of contemporary rock. Whether he is playing a restaurant or playing on stage, he consistently pours his soul into a truly energetic and enjoyable performance. Being a positive influence connecting to his fans means interacting personally. "It has been a blessing meeting great people reaching out with my music to help them with their hard times." Due to childhood medical issue hardships and learning to adapt and overcome challenges, Frank has rerouted illness into strength and lives by his own saying. “Follow your dreams and have no plan b” At the core is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist which is driven with a deep bass voice constantly writing, recording, playing and crafting his sound. "If you want to live your dreams, it must come from your passion, determination and will coming from within.”
Working on new music Palangi released "I Am Ready EP" (2013) produced by Rob Coates (David Archuleta , Rich Redmond, Mark Wills, Traa Daniels) from Nashville, TN that has brought raw, solid sound with twists of heavier flavors. The single "I AM READY" proves to be a modern rock track that attracts your attention, ambitions from the get go which was nominated for an L.A Music Award in Fall 2013 for "BEST ROCK SINGLE". "FROZEN", the ballad single delivers a rock/pop feel, and "BOOHOO" with some rock/country twists. No cookie cutter formula to fuzz about. Members from the Christian rock band "PILLAR" (drummer Lester Estelle jr (Kelly Clarkson) and guitarist, producer Noah Henson), and "Eowyn", (guitarist, producer Jacob Veal) has performed on the EP. Also in production is a brand-new single called “HOPE” coming in April 2014 produced by Frank himself with Michael McManus (Saving Abel, 12 Stones) on drums. Future plans of more singles in the works.
In 2011, fate stepped in and chose the first step and caught the ears of Grammy nominated band “DAY OF FIRE” while attending a local club performance. Few days later their producer Rogers Masson (Marilyn Manson, Vintage Trouble) made contact and soon after began production on the debut “FRANK PALANGI EP”. 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.
