It Could Be Franky
Pop \ Electronica
This minimalism-infused synthpop project with arpeggiators and quirky vocals is the brain child of Danielle Hamel of St. John’s, NL. After playing in indie rock bands for over a decade, Danielle released her first solo record in March 2016, an electronic album entitled Your Friends Don’t Buy It At All. As a follow-up in March 2019, she released an album of indie favourites from the 80’s to today re-imagined as synthpop tunes, We All Know How This Will End.
It Could Be Franky played the Breakout Stage at the 2018 ECMA Conference, was nominated for a 2018 MusicNL Award for Music Video of the Year, 2017 ECMA Award for Electronic Recording of the Year and for a 2017 MusicNL Award for Music Video of the Year, won the 2016 MusicNL Urban/Electronic Artist of the Year award, was nominated for 2016 MusicNL Female Artist of the Year, was longlisted for the 2016 Borealis Music Prize, and voted the People’s Choice Award for Electronic Artist of the Year with The Overcast in 2016 and 2017.
