One of our favorite things to do is get to know the artists we work with. One of those artists is Frankie Ballard. Not only is Frankie a talented singer, and musician but he’s really just a cool, class act type of guy. In 2010 Ballard released his first single “Tell me you get lonely,” followed by “A buncha girls” in 2011 but they didn’t quite take off as well as he had hoped. He went back into the studio, regrouped and about four years later came back with the #1 hit “Helluva Life.” Since then it seems the sky is the limit for Frankie. We have really enjoyed seeing his career grow, and have been truly honored to work with him at a few different events. The last two events we worked with him at were the House of Blues Event in San Diego, and the more recent Jugfest hosted by 106.7 KJUG in Visalia, California May 31st.
Frankie’s high energy set featured 9 songs plus a segment where he brought a few kids onstage to help him sing “Old Time Rock’n Roll” by Bob Seger. He started his set with “This is how I feel about you” as he sat on bar stools, but that didn’t last long as he kicked it into high gear and got the crowds energy levels up. His #1 single “Helluva Life” and his new single “Sunshine and Whiskey” were crowd favorites. We caught up with Frankie at the event, and had a few questions for him.
We want to wish Frankie Ballard continued success on his musical journey, and encourage you to support his music and go see him live! You definitely will not be disappointed. He is one of those artists that sounds just as good, if not better, than they do on the radio.
