FRANK PALANGI Full EP

NY grunge rocker, Frank Palangi, is back, announcing his 2012 song list has gone full EP. Post modern fans will be very happy to hear the continuance of Palangi's already successful debut, as he broadens his range and hits the ground running in this up to the minute collection. Edge-y vocals, thunder guitars and thoughtful productions elevate both the heavy songs and relational ballads. Classic rock, influenced with some fusion arrangements, Palangi mixes his music visions in ways that continue to surprise his increasing fan base.

This year, Palangi has expanded his live acts too, with equal success. He has won The Battle of the Bands at Upstate Concert Hall with Q103 radio, which lead the way for him to open for the UPROAR FESTIVAL. Palangi also opened for UPROAR at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY, which featured Alice in Chains and Jane's Addiction. Later he opened for WEAVING THE FATE in Albany, NY at the Hollow. Between major label gigs, he is always on the road, solo, playing in local clubs, restaurants and bars. And while his fan base is growing exponentially, "I AM READY" was nominated for an L.A. MUSIC AWARD for best rock single this year.

Take a listen to the EP.

Out On The Tiles

Jackson Browne at the Newport Folk Festival, 2012

jacksonbrownefolkfestguitarweb2~For My Sister Grace, " ... say a prayer for The Pretender ..".

Review and Photos by Bluebird.

The Newport Folk Festival has been running for decades, drawing fans and musicians from New England, but expands its reach around the world. It is an outdoor event, held at the Fort Adams State Park, which is accessible by road and water taxi off the Newport harbor. Fort Adams hosts four stages with vendors and facilities accommodating tens of thousands of people. The festival runs for two full days, starting at 11 am, with the last act hitting the stage around 6 pm. The line-up of this year's festival was an eclectic mix of historic folk that spanned the Guthrie's, a tribute to Levon Helm, and a shot of straight out funk, soul performance by Charles Bradley, making way for a kickin house jam, with the up and coming rock band, Dawes.

The headliners for the festival this year were, My Morning Jacket and Jackson Browne. And right on cue for both nights of performance, just in time for these long awaited acts - RAIN! Now, I don't mean drizzle or a summer mist to cool off the heated, tie dyed, crowd. I mean a heavy, coastal, ruin-your-cellphone-in-your-pocket, kind of rain.

So what do faithful folk fans do when Jackson Browne comes on and the skies open up?

We 'Stay'.

And so does Jackson Browne.
