The Skinny: Frank Palangi hails from upstate NY and has founded his love of music from some of the greats. Inspired by Metallica, Johnny Cash, Creed, and Godsmack, Frank Palangi ventured down to Nashville, TN to work with Rogers Masson on his up-coming release Frank Palangi EP. Without a doubt this music is pure rock, yet Frank Palangi remolds his sound for the modern audience. The mix of arrangement and stimulating lyrics brings in a whole new generation of rockers that take their queue from the old greats.

Palangi likes to perform as frequently as possible. He plays heavily in the area around Upstate, NY, the city he calls home. Any chance he gets to play either solo or with a live line-up, he rocks the house. With wanting to branch out with live shows in other states/tours… the future is wide open for this musician.

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. 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.”
