Many artists are molded from someone else’s vision; others like Frank Famous, were born to create their own. His musical genius is shown through his ability to fulfill multiple roles. Along with being an accomplished pianist, he is a dynamic singer, songwriter and producer with a catalog holding hundreds of songs. He is also the founder and CEO of Inkredibly Famous Publishing. Since his early childhood, Famous has known that his purpose is to make music. The South Florida native is living proof that it’s not how your story begins— it’s how it ends.
Rising above a troubled home life, the millennial musician struck out on his own at the age of 17. He started performing locally under the moniker, Smoove and released his first project, “Love To Hate.” Eventually, Famous connected with a songwriter at Island Def Jam records and relocated to Atlanta for a year. While in ATL, Famous wrote and produced, exploring experiences with producers such as Miykal Snoddy (Diddy, Trey Songz, Estelle), Chris Hines (Trey Songz) and Aktual (Young Jeezy). He has also worked with multi-platinum selling artist, Flo Rida.
Unfortunately, Famous’ time in ATL was cut short after failure to reach a final agreement with his contract. Instead of quitting, Famous used that setback as a stepping stone to his comeback. In 2012, he returned home with a changed perspective on how to turn his dreams into his purpose and released his second project, “More Than Music.”
Driven to hone his craft, Famous is versed in the business and technical end of music. He earned an Associate’s Degree in Music Technology & Sound Engineering from Broward College while serving as its Grammy U Ambassador. He is currently working on earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business from Berklee College of Music.
Famous notes friend and Grammy Award winning producer, Supa Dups as one of his inspirations.
Consumed by music, Famous is poised to command the industry with his fusion of 90’s R&B and Trap Soul. The latest from his arsenal includes his new single, “Real One.” His vision is his destiny: “Music has always been more than just notes and lyrics for me, it has been my survival … I live to make music, so the goal is to make music for a living … the end game for me is to be an Entertainment Mogul.”
