Hailing from Oklahoma City by way of Virginia, Frank Black represents a voice telling the truth and struggles of the Black youth with soulful lyricism.
Born and raised in Woodbridge, Virginia, of a Sierra Leone descent, Frank Black learned about the opportunities his parents put before him by raising him in America. Hardworking parents taught Frank that having integrity and applying your self pays off.
Frank’s influences range from the Notorious B.I.G., Big L, Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Lauryn Hill, and 60’s and 70’s soul music. He also says life itself inspires him each day to do what he does. “My purpose is to energize the good music movement. I’m trying to bring people back to a higher, self-aware state of consciousness.”
