“If you’ve been reading the site for some time, you may remember that we featured Frank Vieira in our first ever Stray Plectrums post – well now he’s released his debut album, ‘Three Little Words’. With a sound that’s firmly rooted in both southern rock and mainstream country rock, Frank’s life up until now has not been a traditional inroad into country, and neither is his sound. Born in New York state, he spent most of his youth into sports, playing competitive football, hockey and baseball, with music taking a backseat. However, it was his senior year of high school that saw him take a guitar-building elective and simultaneously fall in love with the instrument. Frank says, “I haven’t put it down since.” Yet, nearly six years on, and you’d be forgiven for assuming that Frank had been pursuing music his whole life. His songs are well-written and well-constructed, and cover a variety of topics, including love, heartbreak, nostalgia and stories that appeal to ordin”

“Vestal High School grad Frank Vieira has been building an audience for his brand of country music in the Pittsburgh area for the past few years, and Friday night he’ll return to the region to share tunes from his recent debut album, “Three Little Words.” The show is set for 10 p.m. Friday night at The Ranch Bar and Grill, 299 Conklin Ave., Binghamton. The 10 original tunes on “Three Little Words” — all written or co-written by Vieira — range from the heartfelt title track to the everyman anthem “Warm Beer.” The record was produced by Jason Levis and David J. Holman at SET Records.”

Press & Sun Bulletin

“Upcoming artist Frank Vieira has a refreshing blend of gritty vocals and crafty song writing skills. There's a bit of everything on his SET Records debut starting with the high energy 'Ain't Too Crowded'. Electric, rock-infused guitar solos are a staple throughout much of the album; with a stand out effort on 'Jekyll & Hyde'. Frank's ability to switch gears with strong conviction on the slower tempo songs is another highlight of his work. The title track '3 Little Words' has chart-topping hit written all over it, with the relatable revelation of regret. In short, I highly recommend this album to all... You will not be disappointed! Other favorite tracks: Love, Bad Habits, Son”

“Check out our awesome interview with the talented, Frank Vieira. Be sure and get Frank’s single, (Place That Ain’t) “Too Crowded”!”

“Vastly different again to the other acts featured today, Frank Vieira instantly evokes a strong comparison to Eric Church, but with a rougher finish and more of a growl that sets him apart as his own artist. One glance at his influences confirms this comparison, and offerings such as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley further make sense of this country rocker. This New York native has just been signed, with a debut single and an exciting album due for release in the fall. ”

“Every musician has a unique story of how he or she started singing or playing an instrument. For Robert Morris University senior, Frank Vieira, it all started when he took a guitar making class his senior year of high school year. “That was the major factor in me picking up the guitar and being really driven to do it,” recalled Vieira. Shortly after beginning to learn how to play the guitar, he started singing.11”

“When Frank Vieira was a sophomore in high school, country music was the last thing on his mind. But by the time the New York-native enrolled at Robert Morris University, he'd already begun penning his own country-tinged songs. Last spring, Vieira helped organize RMU's weekly Open Mic Night events, and he's since released his first country album, "Over, Over You," with producer Dave Rice. Vieira spent some time talking to Patch about his passion for country music and future as a musician. Catch Vieira’s next Open Mic Night performance at 9 p.m. Feb. 22 in the Nicholson Center Food Court on RMU's campus.....”

“I love country music. Even though some is twangy and whiney, I’ll never be disappointed with a Frank Vieira show. My friends and I saw Frank Vieira perform at the Rex Theatre in the South Side on Sunday, January 15. He chose to cover a few popular country songs and successfully added his own style into them. As an emerging artist, he also performed original songs, which seemed to be a bigger hit than the covered songs.....”
