It Could Be Franky
Electronica \ Pop
Computer music meets dance music in this minimalism-infused synthpop project with arpeggiators and quirky vocals by Danielle Hamel (from Land of the Lakes) based out of St. John’s, NL. After playing in indie rock bands for over a decade, Danielle released her first solo album in March 2016, an electronic album entitled Your Friends Don’t Buy It At All.
It Could Be Franky played the Breakout Stage at the 2018 ECMA Conference, was nominated for a 2017 ECMA Award for Electronic Recording of the Year and for a 2017 MusicNL Award for Music Video of the Year, won the 2016 MusicNL Urban/Electronic Artist of the Year award, was nominated for 2016 MusicNL Female Artist of the Year, was longlisted for the 2016 Borealis Music Prize, and voted the People’s Choice Award for Electronic Artist of the Year with The Overcast in 2016 and 2017. Previous music placements include the 2016 St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival trailer and campaign, several short films and webisodes, and the nominee bumpers at the 2017 ECMA Awards Show and 2018 MusicNL Awards Show.
Her next album, an eclectic collection of cover songs reimagined as synthpop tunes, will be released in Winter 2019.
