"No Plan B" says Frank Palangi, an Indie American recording artist homegrown from the Capital Region of NY serving up a feeding frenzy of gritty, raw, powerful vocals mixing energetic, driving, positive rock music. Palangi's creativity is freshly fueled with a kick of modern rock and a hint of old school good stuff. As a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, his work and determination has opened up to working with industry producers and musicians along with opening for a variety of national shows. Grounded from a solid support system from his upbringing, his motivation is focused not by the temptations of partying every day and every night. Growing up he had to adapt to medical illnesses that impacted his lifestyle, but he took what could of been a negative and rerouted it into a strength. - " I have no plan b in backing down on my dreams" - Frank Palangi

"Palangi’s positivity extends beyond his music into the way he interacts with his fans. " - Guitar World.

Influenced from hardrock/metal bands from the 80's (Metallica), grunge bands from the 90's (Creed), to modern bands from the 2000's (Daughtry), his taste in music is spread out as a millennial but Frank has developed his own sound, image, attitude and following. Landing acoustic and band shows opening for 3 Doors Down, Red Sun Rising, Buckcherry, Candlebox, Aaron Lewis (Staind), Starset, Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf), FUEL / Marcy Playground, TRAPT with Smile Empty Soul / Candlelight Red / Veer Union, Powerman 5000 with HEDPE, Young Guns, HURT, Jess Malin (Former D-Generation singer), and supporting acts IM5, Spiritual Rez, Prospect Hill, Bad Axis, Hindenberg, Sirsy, Deluka, Silversyde.

BACKGROUND: In 2010, fate crossed paths handing a demo CD to the Grammy Nominated Christian rock band, “Day Of Fire” at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY. Singer Josh Brown (also from Full Devil Jacket) saw the potential and drive Frank had and forwarded it over to their Nashville producer Rogers Masson. After receiving an email, plans were on the way travel to TN to record his 1st 5 song EP at music mecca. Masson said, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance from Josh, Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing." Frank says "The first EP was an amazing experience that pushed me to see the industry side. I felt a platform to stand on with support from these awesome people and drove me to new opportunities from national shows, steady local gigs, and getting internet/local radio play."
