Guest performer: Frankly

Quirky and eclectic, 25 year old Frankly, has been creating intimate performances across the East End and Festival scenes for the better part of a decade. Likened to Amanda Palmer and Regina Spektor, her compositions dance between whimsical and delicate, to dark and emotive. Accompanied by dynamic vocal textures and playful showmanship, audiences are absorbed by Frankly’s animated presence and candid approach to storytelling that centers around personal stories, mental health, feminism, the occult and the ridiculousness of life.
