Musician Frank Bramble is a Birmingham/Leicester-based composer and producer who has worked with local musicians including Space Toast and Dan Hewitt on recordings and mixes for their albums.
After a new start and a transfer to Birmingham, Frank began creating his own songs. Hip-hop beats, casual rapping, and an indie-like vocal style naturally drew him to the genre.
Frank’s producing approach is the result of constant experimenting with acoustic instruments and synthesisers. Please join me on this quest of self-discovery.
I spoke with him in-depth, and he released his new song Pain on Music Arena Gh as an exclusive.
In order to better understand Frank’s personal life, Pain takes a step back. Frank’s favourite “Indie-Hop” genre, which he’s been creating, is taken a step closer to Oliver Tree’s vocal and instrumentation approach in this song.
A betrayal from a close friend is well shown in the tale of Pain. Pain is peppered with these emotional jewels in the lyrics, and this properly reflects how this incident affected Frank.
What is your real and showbiz name?
They are one and the same, Frank Bramble
Where are you from (hometown)?
I’m from Twycross Zoo, born and raised!
How did you get into music?
Well, I’d always been into music as a kid, but I didn’t have the patience for theory, I attempted to learn guitar from a young age but never succeeded.
What field or genre are you into and give a brief description of what your field feels like?
My music overlaps with Hip-Hop, indie and a flavour of electronic, trying to develop a unique blend from all my tastes that I listen to daily. I’m starting to incorporate punk elements into my newer tracks because I love the attitude and ‘grittiness’.
Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why??
Well for the past year I’ve been living with another indie artist – Hanwell, we’ve worked together on a couple of tracks and we work in similar genres. Well, we were constantly writing and producing songs together and the constant feedback and conversations, I believe, pushed us both to improve to a more professional level.
What does your current song/album mean to you?
‘Pain’ is a very personal track, it’s about the ending of two relationships concurrently, and how the words I’m saying could apply to either person. Each lyric and each layer is coated in meaning, so I urge you to give it a listen!
What are your hobbies?
Music is and always will be my main outlet, but I play football, I LOVE to game and have always had a passion for electronics, I built the PC that this track was written and produced on, and it is a passion I’ve had for even longer than my passion for production.
