Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey! I am Frank Moyo. A 26-year-old singer-songwriter born and bred in Toronto, Ontario. I have been gigging and writing since I was 11 and just released my single called “Friend of Mine” on all platforms. I draw inspiration from my heritage, which is rooted in Italy as well as certain aspects of Canadian life. Songwriting has become such an important aspect of my life and has solidified itself as my main passion and probably the only thing I think I am really good at!
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music has often been referred to as somewhat jazzy and alternative indie. I draw inspiration from other singer-songwriters such as Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver, Johnny Cash, and Lucio Dalla. Telling a story and being able to translate what I’m feeling into song is my main goal as a songwriter.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
My next shows will be supporting the iconic Bif Naked on her “Songs and Stories” tour. After that, I will be performing at the Burdock as support to Pat Robitaille in Toronto. For those who haven’t gotten a chance to see me perform I would say that my live shows are usually divided into acoustic or full band. Both allow listeners to grasp the meaning and emotions behind the songs. Performing acoustic allows me to focus more on the passion and lyrical meaning behind the songs whereas full band performances really bring out the true instrumental life of the recorded work.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I think I would suggest my new single Friend of Mine! it’s a true testament to where I’m at in my songwriting these days.
