Frank-O Johnson

Everybody down south knows about Frank-O, host of the radio show, The Frank-O Smooth Soul Show. He's also a columnist/record producer/label owner/singer/songwriter. Possessing a rich, classic soul voice ala Johnnie Taylor he is responsible for some great modern soul. His songs have been covered by greats like Bobby "Blue" Bland, Willie Clayton & many more. He first recorded when he was only 14 and was eventually on the Motown team and wrote songs for the likes of The Supremes and Bobby Womack. The Temptations' "Gonna' Get You," Aretha Franklin's "I'm Not Strong Enough" and Thelma Houston's "I've Been Doing Wrong So Long, It Just Comes Natural" were nominated for Grammy awards. He went on to produce artists like Johnnie Taylor, Ernie Johnson and Gwen McCrae and set up his own label called Phat Sound Records. One of the most underrated modern soul singers we have.
