Tip the Artist
Frank Palangi is an indie rock recording artist who positively refuses to let a genre go dark. Show the raw acoustic emotional side or set free the driving energetic electric guitar with a feeding frenzy of gravelly, deep n gritty, vibrato vocals. Frank leaves it all on the stage with the passion flowing through his veins saying "I have no plan B on backing down on my dreams". Discovering music from the young age of 13, he taught himself guitar, bass, drums, recording, mixing with his style that tips the hat on the past 30 year evolution of 80s & 90s rock & post grunge mixed with a taste of heavy metal. "I was a shy kid with health issues growing up so no sports, so I turned to creative outlets. Learning from those decades I wasn't going for the typical drinking, smashing hotel rooms as the rocker lifestyle is known for. It could be more about the music, the positive elements, that so many people get drawn into and yes that rock n roll rebel yell to stand up for yourself ."
Some say Rock is dead? --- 2020/2021 marks an unknown path in general for the music industry since COVID but ever so determined Palangi is still pushing forward. Since the start of the rise of social platforms, it changed the field of how everything works for musicians to get their material out there and Frank has worked on being right in the game. Patience and persistence is key with having an admirable stubbornness tenacity of not giving up. The big choke in the music business is that you think you'll become an over night success fast, that's not always the case. Rejection can be hard but Frank fuels his passion, relentless work, and a bit of extra faith.
