"No Plan B" says Frank Palangi. An Indie American Recording Artist homegrown from the Upstate NY / Capital Region serving up a feeding frenzy of gritty, raw powerhouse vocals seasoned with rich energetic positive rock music. Palangi's creativity freshly fuels in a kick of the modern with an aftertaste of the old school good stuff influenced from hard rock/metal bands from the 80's (Metallica, Ozzy), grunge bands from the 90's (Creed, Godsmack), to modern bands from the 2000's (Daughtry, Three Days Grace),
A songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, his determination has opened up his dreams to working with industry producers (Rogers Masson, Rob Coates, Robert Venable) and bands (Pillar, Day Of Fire, Daughtry Guitarist Brian Craddock) along with receiving an LA Music Awards Nomination for I Am Ready, an Akademia Music Award for Break These Chains and Unsigned Only Finalist. Instilled from a young age with a solid support system from his parents, Frank's motivation is focused not by the temptations of partying every day and every night. One major hurdle growing up was to adapt to his medical illnesses that impacted his lifestyle and turned them from being a negative into a rerouted strength. - " I have no plan b in backing down on my dreams" - FP

BACKGROUND: In 2010, fate crossed paths handing a demo CD to the Grammy Nominated Christian rock band, “Day Of Fire” at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY. Singer Josh Brown (also from Full Devil Jacket) saw the potential and drive Frank had and forwarded it over to their Nashville producer Rogers Masson. After receiving an email, plans were on the way travel to TN to record his 1st 5 song EP at music mecca. Masson said, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance from Josh, Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing." Frank says "The first EP was an amazing experience that pushed me to see the industry side. I felt a platform to stand on with support from these awesome people and drove me to new opportunities from national shows, steady local gigs, and getting internet/local radio play."
