David and I wrote "Sunrise" by Kygo together. His voice is one of my all time favorites and his sense of melody is like no one else. HIRE HIM :)
Is David Frank one of the most talented songwriters and vocalist of all time?
Will David Frank make your song 10000000000000000x better than it already was?
Critics say he's one of the best to do it
Random magazine one time said he wrote a song with just a cowbell
He has an award given to him by a Dove because thats how lovely and poetic his words are
This guy gets it.
I once saw David Frank fight a fully grown Grizzly Bear while blindfolded with one hand tied behind his back. The bear charged him, and all David had to do was sing the chorus of one of his beautiful songs in the bear's direction. The bear immediately fell to the ground weeping in sheer astonishment of the beauty of David's songwriting and vocal abilities.
Okay, but really . . . I work with David all the time. He is an amazing songwriter, and has one of the most powerful voices you'll hear. Think Coldplay meets Imagine Dragons. He also has an amazing attitude and is a pleasure to work with.
David is what I call a "timeless" artist. Not only does he have what I believe to be one of the best voices that we have in music right now but he has such an attention to story in his music that it isn't easily forgotten and THAT is what I believe makes a great artist.
David has an incredible voice and always lifts productions to a higher level. He's an expert in songwriting and vocal engineering/production. Just listen to his songs...
