"Embracingfranki is Joe Jackson, Gavin Friday, Engelbert Humperdinck, Marianne Faithfull & the virgin Mary united in one singer ! (Radio 1 Belgium)"
Gifted with a unique voice, the Ghent-based popcrooner Embracingfranki has been regularly swooning Belgian audiences since the late 90s. Can you imagine a mix of the cabaret-like pop of Gavin Friday or Marc Almond, the passionate stage presence of Jacques Brel and a flair for tragic torch-songs inherited from Abba-singer Agnetha Fältskog? Getting pretty close! However, EmbracingFranki is also just Franki: a flamboyant and strong personality, with a tinge of camp and a splash of melancholy but always ending on a hopeful note.
