“Brian Franke’s brand of upbeat, melodic pop gets the quality production it deserves on his latest album, “Six Blocks Down.” The soaring, briskly-paced rocker “I’m Just Sayin’” conjures fond memories of Barenaked Ladies while “You Got All You Want (Girl)” is a pretty ballad that showcases Franke’s vocal range and ability to convey genuine emotion. Throughout the record, Franke’s crisp, assured guitar playing stands out. The entire album represents a strong effort from a talented local artist.”
“Brian's just an awesome, awesome singer/songwriter. Talented guy just through and through.”
“The music is a mixture of indie rock and pop and stands out as both crisp and sharp musically, however what really makes it for the Beehive are Brian's vocals which suit perfectly the punch and delivery of his songs.”
“I have been impressed with how Brian's music comes from such a sincere and authentic place. I always enjoy hearing his well-crafted songs, with solid hooks, and I always buy in to his rootsy/rock/folk style. I wish him the best of luck in what could be a long and rewarding career in music.”
“I've been producing music for Brian Franke since 2007, and it's been exciting to watch him define his signature sound - combining sensitive yet brutally honest lyrics tackling personal and societal issues with hard rockin' rhythms and catchy melodies.”
“Brian is a very professional and talented musician to book shows with. He's reliable and flexible with scheduling and performs an entertaining show for the audience.”
