Do you know who Frank Skott is? No? That is because Frank is one of Europe’s best kept secrets.
With nearly 13 years as a singer/songwriter, a major record deal, UK tour, major single release, 2 album releases and countless live performances all over the world, Frank still feels as though he’s just getting started.
As a songwriter, Frank has worked with some of music’s most respected names, and has the rave reviews to prove it. Frank’s soulful voice has been likened by many to greats such as Stevie Wonder, Terence Trent D’Arby and D’Angelo, and his song writing has taken him to some of the worlds most famous recording studios, including Lobo Studios on New York’s Long Island, home to the likes of 50 Cent, J-Lo and Marc Anthony. He has written songs for best selling UK girl group the ‘Sugababes’, and multi platinum UK boyband ‘Blue’, as well as co-writing with some real music pros such as Jez Larder, producer for Estelle, One Eskimo and David Bowie, among others. He’s written with David Faulk ( Mystikal ), Stevie Lange ( Bon Jovi, Blue, Sugababes, LuLu ), Jeff Scantlebury ( Stevie Wonder ) and the list goes on. With a song catalogue of some 160 plus songs, there is no end to the creative well Frank can draw from, or to the number of people who want to work with him.
Frank was born 30 years ago in Copenhagen, Denmark. Having a Danish mother and a Spanish father meant Frank’s life was destined to be international from the start. As well as English, Frank speaks and writes French and his own native Spanish, and having friends from all over the world allows him to practice his languages regularly. His schooling took him from Northern Ireland, to the Isle of Man, to southern England, where he finished university in Worcester with a degree in Outdoor Rec Management. His life since then has taken him everywhere, and he has followed his passion and his dream with a tenacity and desire to succeed and improve.
He will always describe Marbella as ‘home,’ but is still desperate to explore more of the world, and surround himself with what gives him the inspiration for most of his songs; people! People that is, of all different shapes, sizes, colours and creeds. Frank is at home around pretty much anyone, and it shows when you talk to him. He seems very laid back, and almost unshockable, and his love and affection for those close to him is something he says he is too honest to hide. He lost his ‘British stiff upper lip’ many years ago, and is much happier embracing his more open, emotional Latino side now.
Frank Skott is a man of many contrasts; the intellectual, the thinker, the philosopher, the writer, singer and poet, the Casanova, the epitome of the ladies man. He spent 16 years of his life in boarding schools and was, in his words, ‘raised by an old school system with old school values.’ But there’s the side of him that gave him the muscles, the scars, the tattoos and that long blond hair, his love of rugby, mixed martial arts, rally driving and weight lifting. You can tell from the soul in his voice, and the thought behind his lyrics, that this man has really lived, loved and lost. ‘Looks like a fallen angel, sounds like heaven,’ is how some would describe this talented mystery man.
Frank is now in the process of writing and recording his third album, coming out sometime later this year. His work can be found on iTunes and most other major internet music download sites. His albums, ‘Hard To Say’ and ‘Under The Streetlight’ are a must for music fans.
At present, he is in his hometown of Marbella, on Spain’s Costa Del Sol, and will soon be performing there and throughout Europe whilst promoting his up and coming album release. His smooth, heavy RnB and Soul grooves and his truly excellent vocal performances are something not to be missed.
