ABOUT FRANKLYNE

FRANKLYNE'S BIOGRAPHy

Singer / Songwriter / Composer / Director / Producer / DJ

Born in Montreal on January 26th, 1962, this versatile self-taught artist picked up the guitar at the age of eight. By the time she was twelve she was already performing top-40 repertoire in the local bars. In 1980 she recorded two albums, “Le Maraudeur” and “Térapi Primal” with her punk rock band Térapi who went on to open for major artists such as Nina Hagen, Gang of Four, The Fixx and Rough Trade. She was later invited to join Michael Lemieux on his 1988 “Mutation” world tour.

 

Fast forward to 1989, Frankline won the Musique Plus People’s Choice award (as part of their Rock Envol series) for her song Rock’N’Roll Girl, recorded and performed with her own band Frankline et les Fleurs Sauvages. Shortly after, in 1992 she directed and produced two videos, Rock’N’Roll Girl and Prends une Chance avec Moi from the self-titled album Frankline et les Fleurs Sauvages. Six of the tracks from the album were broadcast across Canada and distributed in Europe by Warner Brothers France.

 

In 2007 Franklyne produced and directed yet another album Nouveau Scénario featuring twelve new songs with a departure from her usual edgy rock style. The album incorporated a variation of styles including some waltz, cha-cha, samba, rumba, love ballads, reggae and country.  With the album release in October of 2007 Franklyne was invited to play a string of concerts at the famous UU Theatre in Provincetown USA where she was featured on the cover of Banner, a popular local news publication. This was soon followed up with several other concert appearances in various venues across Canada including Vancouver’s Gabrielle Roy Theatre (Surrey B.C.) and Montreal’s own Place des Arts to name a few. She would later appear as a guest on Patrick Norman’s show “Pour L’Amour du Country” in 2010 (New Brunswick).

 

As a lifelong aficionado of folk & country music Franlyne decided it was time to record and produce her first country album in 2015 titled Country Junky, featuring twelve tracks all written and arranged by the former blond rocker. Five of the tracks (Country Junky, I Love U, Je Prends la Route, La Valse du Plateau and Avant de Partir) made their way to the Quebec radio airwaves as well as earning some well-deserved positions on the digital charts.

 

Franklyne has since won 2nd place in the Stingray Rising Stars competition in the *country pop/folk singer/songwriter category at the last edition of the Festival Wester de St-Tite, an event that takes place annually. While performing her title track Country Junkie before a packed audience, this blond powerhouse managed to mesmerize the judges with her infectious rhythms and unique brand of dynamic energy on stage.

IMG_1741.JPG

"As radio DJ this CD hits it out of the ballpark for my weekly show.

With rich diversity of musical styles and incredible vocals. Keep the beat alive!!"

THERESA REYNOLDS, KZFR-FM 90.1, Chico, Californie, 2020

"Franklyne (Canada) is one of the greatest singers and artists I know, especially when it comes to country music. I hope that she will be a guest singer at the Country music festival in Italy in 2021. ¨Country Music & Line Dance Sicily¨.

ANGELO CARNEMOLLA / Italie 2020

 

"The fiery artist, in her early fifties, is bursting with energy and will have everyone fall head over heels. Franklyne offers us this Country Junky, a 12-track opus entirely written and composed by the blond rocker. The first single I Love U is already floating on the radio waves… However, it is the track Rock U due to its passion, not to mention the new version of Rock N’Roll Girl … dashing and festive, this album is enjoyed even at full gallop."

LOUIS COSTA, Fugue/Montréal

 

"You must hear it live! This soft-hearted bohemian who, despite the hardships, is bound to put us in a good mood when she picks up her guitar and harmonica to perform her own compositions, or a few great rock, rhythm & blues, or country classics!"

SYLVAIN BAZINET, Revue Baz

 

"Out of sight since the Fleurs Sauvages and Teraoi, Franklyne comes back to life with an album, spiced with rumba, samba, cha-cha, and even country! Impeccably executed, intimate, confessional, ambient. She has reworked some of her previous material and offers some new, smooth, and moving tunes. A solid voice that sure is convincing. A great album that leaves you satisfied."

SERGE PARADIS, Choix CD Du Ici

 

"Some may recall Térapi, from the ’80s, or Franklyne et les Fleurs Sauvages, from the ’90s If you do, in both cases, you’ll hear the voice of Franklyne humming in your ears, with that typical colourful grain. She offers a new sound, along with some great souvenirs: reggae, samba, waltz or neo-country. Accompanied by excellent musicians (Éric West on bass, Bernard Cormier on violin, Mario Labrosse on percussions, etc.), Franklyne happily sings in French, English, or Spanish, and she sure swings in any language!."

REJEAN BEAUCAGE, Voir

 

"Franklyne, the energy that from deep within with the urgency of living. She moves us with her intensity and her throaty, grain-textured voice. They are also moving, and the lyrics are meaningful. To discover."

YOLAINE MOTTET, Radio-Canada, Vancouver

Nouveau Scenario is a mix of international sounds and rhythm, and it’s definitely the kind of music you can get up and dance to, especially if you can samba!  The group’s smooth vocal style and memorable harmonies are easy-going and diverse, with approachable lyrics that will please the Women’s Week crowd.

LAUREN JOHNSON, Provincetown Banner – New England, USA

wFranklyne creates a colourful galaxy that goes from waltz to samba, from French to Spanish, with rage at heart but wisdom in the voice."

LAURE MARTIN, La Tribune, Sherbrooke

 

The CD is rich and well produced, with strains of a violin and full band. Her voice is strong, the songs pleasant.

MARY J. MARTIN SCHEAFER, Provincetown magazine, MA, USA
