A long term member of indelabilityARTS, a Brisbane based theatre company providing employment for people with disability, Frank has a clear vision for her music and business with a planned regional Queensland and New South Wales tour on the books to showcase the work of regional artists in her upcoming THE HIGH HORSE tour.
As a strong, independent female, Frank now trademark call to arms for unapologetic authenticity is connecting to her fans in their need for a voice. Creating music that doesn’t confine itself to the industry norm both sonically and in its content is Frank’s calling card.
