Frankie Conquers Grief in Her New EP "Sta7ges"

Frankie sat down with Brent Butler to discuss the seven stages of grief, the joys of being a 90s kid, and why her high school voted her most likely to trip while walking up stairs.

Frankie has her eye on the big picture.

When the Bay Area singer released her debut EP Dreamstate, Nylon magazine called her "the musical embodiment of California." Now, the pop singer has followed up with her latest EP Sta7ges, more mature, more honest, and "raw like an open wound." For her sophomore EP, Frankie freed herself from the pressures to write "the perfect song" and allowed herself to write more freely. United by the concept of overcoming grief after a break-up, Sta7ges is a cathartic collection of Frankie's impressive guitar skills and vocals.
