“Their music is fun and something I would want to hear live. The vibes are loose and encourage a good time in a Vampire Weekend type of way... the sound is undeniably catchy and well written.”
Funk rock 4-piece Fake Frank has many influences, including Chick Corea, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Mac Demarco. The music is meaningful, tackling subjects such as mental health, social justice, and LGBTQ+ issues.
Fake Frank was founded by Brown University singer/songwriter Dan Avedis Masotti, great-grandson of Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter George Vaughn Horton. Teaming up with Berklee multi-instrumentalist and Billy Joel Foundation Scholarship recipient Jeremy Kaplan, as well as drummer Harrison Kravis, the band released three singles that led to the debut self-titled album in March 2018. Their music has garnered radio play and positive critical feedback, including receipt of The Deli Magazine’s ‘New England Emerging Artist of the Month' in March, 2017. Jazz guitarist Jon Chernack rounds out the four-piece lineup, which has played live in New England and the greater NYC area.
