Frankie Chavez’s music, surfer and rocker from Lisbon (Portugal), is a mix between different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences it’s hard to define his music in a single word.
But we can say for sure that it sounds like rock, folk, blues and surf with a Portuguese soul
