NL - To Be Frank Records is een feit en trapt af met maar liefs 4 artiesten!

To Be Frank Records is een nieuw Internationaal platen label opgericht door de Nederlander Frank Lenselink samen met de Engelsman Tom Pearce, die zijn sporen ruim verdient heeft met artiesten als Elton John, George Harrison, Eric Clapton en vele anderen. To Be Frank records trapt af met de lancering van 4 artiesten die allen potentieel hebben om op wereld niveau door te breken. In Engeland zijn ze met veel enthousisme ontvangen. We hebben het over de Amerikaanse Wé McDonald, Nomden, de leading muzikant van “The Analogues”, AVERTO, een vernieuwend muziek consortium, en Zuid-Afrikaan Jeremy Olivier, die oa heeft opgenomen met Ladysmith Black Mambazo en Will Calhoun van rock legends Living Colour. 

De Artiesten hebben bewust gekozen voor To Be Frank Records om de persoonlijke en unieke benadering van het label.

To Be Frank Records is een complete nieuwe benadering van de muziek wereld, de artiesten blijven zelf eigenaar van hun muziek, hetgeen tot nu altijd over ging naar het platen Label. “Meer artistieke vrijheid en nooit onenigheid hierover” aldus Frank. “We zijn ook de Agent van de artiest, zodat we de muzikant qua ontwikkeling integraal benaderen, en uiteraard bieden we publishing in ons diensten pakket”  “Tom Pearce heeft een enorme ervaring en credibility in de muziekwereld, en bovendien gouden oren, bijzonder om met hem het label verder uit te bouwen”, aldus Lenselink. “In deze tijden zijn we natuurlijk ook bezig concepten te ontwikkelen die de artiest weer “Live” bij het publiek kan brengen, we blijven creatief”

EN - To Be Frank Records is a fact and kicks off with no less than 4 artists!

To Be Frank Records is a new international record label founded by the Dutchman Frank Lenselink together with the Englishman Tom Pearce, who has earned his spurs with artists such as Elton John, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and many others. To Be Frank Records kicks off with the launch of 4 artists who all have the potential to break through on a world level. In England they have been received with great enthusiasm. We're talking about the American Wé McDonald, Nomden, the leading musician of “The Analogues”, AVERTO, an innovative music consortium, and South African Jeremy Olivier, who has recorded with Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Will Calhoun of rock legends Living Color.

Our artists have chosen To Be Frank Records because of our personal and unique approach, we are more than a label, we are a family.

To Be Frank Records is a completely new approach to the music world, the artists themselves remain the owners of their music, which until now always went to the record label. "More artistic freedom and never disagreement about this" says Frank. "We are also the artists agent, so that we approach the musician integrally in terms of development, and of course we offer publishing in our service package" "Tom Pearce has enormous experience and credibility in the music world, as well as golden ears, which is special to further expand the label with him," said Lenselink. “In these times we are, of course, also busy developing concepts that the artist can bring to a live audience again, we remain creative”
