about

Frankie McQueen is a Calgary based power blues trio. Taking the “balls out” approach when it comes to their live show, Frankie McQueen likes to leave the stage and their audience whisky and beer soaked. Encompassing the attitude of Seattle grunge and the swagger of ZZ-Top, these guys are not afraid to take risks and are more likely to have a beer with a fan rather than sign an autograph. The stage is where this trio feels most at home and their onstage chemistry shows true brotherhood. Formed in 2007 by vocalist Scotty Charles and drummer Connor Muth, this bluesy three piece has worked hard to get their music across the country. The addition of bassist Corey Adams was a huge stepping stone in creating the sound that they now posses and was the catalyst to turn this rock group into a band of brothers playing groove based rock n’ roll with soulful melodies, tight drums, and groovy bass lines with the odd screaming solo peppered in. Since the release of their self titled EP in the spring of 2012 Frankie McQueen has had the opportunity to open for the likes of The Sam Roberts Band, Flash Lightnin’, Bedouin Soundclash, and Daniel Wesley to name a few and have also teamed up with Art Szabo of Sfear Management. Having the philosophy that they have to get out and cut their teeth on the road FMQ is not afraid to work day and night. The boy’s in Frankie have big plans for the future including a Canada wide tour and the release of their second EP in the spring of 2014 produced by Kirill Telichev.

Track Name: Drown the Sound
I'll tell you one thing, your words mean nothing
I'll tell you one thing, our time is coming

I'm on the outside looking in
Seems like that's where I've always been
Taking a risk is like a sin
I'm yelling are you listening?
Every time the bitter cold
It chills and it grabs ahold
It knocks you down on your knees
And makes you pray for sweet release

Oh, Drown out the sound

I'll tell you one thing, your words mean nothing
I'll tell you one thing, our time is coming

Am I worth less than you?
You must be taking me for a fool
You judge and smile your crooked eyes
They've got me everything but hypnotized

Oh, Drown out the sound

I'll tell you one thing, your words mean nothing
I'll tell you one thing, our time is coming
Track Name: Black Horse
You might just tell me I drink too much
Because I'm your lover
You might just think that way because
Because of your mother
You might just think that I'm feeding you
Some kind of lie
Hell, girl you know I'm not telling you
Any lines
You might just think this is all some
Some kind of plan
Hell, girl you know my plans were all
All made of sand

When the black horse has been put away I see the
Bright lights as they start to fade but when I
See you I'm in a whole new way
I see the beauty in life

The way you would look at me the
Next day we fought
Had me questioning all your
Motives and thoughts
I loved you for who I thought you were
Without knowing the facts
The way you would look at me and then stop
Me dead in my tracks

When the black horse has been put away I see the
Bright lights as they start to fade but when I
See you I'm in a whole new way
I see the beauty in life

Oh, how I would melt when I caught you staring at me
Now all I see is a broken picture of what used to be
Take this for what it was intended to be
Your love, truly set me free

When the black horse has been put away I see the
Bright lights as they start to fade but when I
See you I'm in a whole new way
I see the beauty in life
Track Name: Revolution
I see a man that wants to trade his soul
Before the twilight starts to take control
He tried to run before he couldn't walk
The battle's over, now this is war

Now we're taking the chance to get higher

I see a revolution coming from a gun
Are you proud enough to know when your time has come?
The evolution after life, your rising sun

The silence that surrounds his existence
Only a name is left as evidence
Beauty in his eyes fades with eventide
Take honour with you when you leave tonight

I see a revolution coming from a gun
Are you proud enough to know when your time has come?
The evolution after life, your rising sun
Now we're taking the chance to get higher

Take me higher, take me higher
Now we're taking the chance to get higher
Take me higher, take me higher
Now we're taking the chance, now we're taking the...

I see a revolution coming from a gun
Are you proud enough to know when your time has come?
The evolution after life, your rising sun
Now we're taking the chance to get higher
Track Name: When You're Gone
A silhouette blurs, lies are disguised
With light in your eyes
Your hollow embrace, leaves a decadent taste
Of bitter demise

Where will you be, when you put love at risk
Where will you be, when I'm betrayed with a kiss
Where will you be, one year from now
Where will you be, where will you be

I ask myself why, in all my life
Was my heart so blind
Up comes the night, devours the light
Eclipsing my mind

Where will you be, when you put love at risk
Where will you be, when I'm betrayed with a kiss
Where will you be, one year from now
Where will you be, where will you be
