Frankie Wesson – Just Friends
Hard gigging Frankie Wesson and her band have just had a launch party for her new single Just Friends. 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 LGBTQ+.
Her versatile vocal range and talent for emotive, relatable song writing makes for captivating live performances. 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 album Still Got Time has had over 112,000 streams on Spotify. Swansea’s Soundboard magazine described 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’.
