Currently in the studio recording toward what will be her next album, singer/songwriter/guitarist Frankie Raye is based in the greater Tampa Bay area and has played 30 cities and 100-plus venues in Florida. She also performed at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, in late January. In May of this year she performed at the 2018 Key Largo Original Music Festival. Soon after that she did a successful performance in conjunction with a Tampa Bay Rays (Major League Baseball) game that resulted in multiple re-bookings.

In August alone Frankie has 29 bookings and routinely averages well over 20 dates per month, having been on stages ranging from the Hard Rock in Tampa to the Ritz Carlton in Naples to a festival on the northeast coast of Florida. She has been featured on ABC and CBS-TV affiliate morning talk shows, and gotten her music into radio rotation.

Frankie released her first official album in 2016, with worldwide distribution, although she had put out a ten-song, self-produced/independently distributed release entitled, “Chapters” in 2014. She writes, sings, plays guitar, and has started to dabble a bit with the mandolin. You can find her online at www.FrankieRaye.com
