Franky Perez Interview 22/11/21


Recorded ahead of his appearance at London's Last Man Showcase last Wednesday, today's Podcast Of The Day is Ivan De Mello's audio interview with singer-songwriter Franky Perez, who was in the UK to support his new single, ‘The Great Divide', taken from his forthcoming album and documentary film, ‘Crossing the Great Divide’, which is scheduled to debut at the 2022 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, next March. The album, which has been called, “beautiful, inspiring and very timely", will be released by Black Sea Music in Spring next year. Indeed, Franky’s incredible vocal presence and charismatic personality have allowed him to cross multiple genres and work with some of the greatest names in music including Billy Gibbons, Joe Cocker, Darius Rucker, Ringo Starr, Steven Tyler, Cody Jinks, Chris Janson and Slash. Last year, on a journey of service and self-discovery, Franky filmed the documentary as he rode across the US on his motorcycle, playing for healthcare workers and patients and meeting with musicians and friends.
