frank powers is meant literally. But here's that guy's story. Hip-Hop was life for 9-years-old Frank. From head spins, to terrible attempts of rap, from horrible graffiti sketches to a few years of capoeira... He'd eventually found a lot of joy in skateboarding.
Due to physical and mental issues he'd lost all his sponsors and failed to become a professional skateboarder. That was when he decided to fully live in music. Influenced by skateboard movie's soundtracks, his fathers afro-percussion and his lovely bandmates that come from various backgrounds, he ditched music school to run into the ambivalently loving arms of the world.
Frank now produces a multiligual mix of song nurtured by many different kinds of music from all over the globe. Lead by his kind of poetic way of being, he's taking that all on stage with much devotion and an intention to linger on.
„laisser faire", made him tour all around Switzerland, with a stop at Gurten and Montreux Jazz Festival, bits of England and France.
He's opened shows for fellow swiss musician Faber on his tour through Germany, Austria right before Flohzirkus EP was released in Januar 2018.
He briefly lived and worked on new music in Paris. The now 27 years old swiss-angolan artist is setting up a new mattress at his friends in Zürich Switzerland. "Juheminee" - his new album is coming out soon on vinyl and with a skateboard. He's very much looking forward to it.
So then, peace, love and a bit of anarchy
