Frank McComb

Often compared to Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder, McComb has collaborated with many renowned recording artists including Prince, Chaka Khan, Teddy Pendergrass, Gerald Levert, and Teena Marie.

Soul/Jazz

Frank McComb is a divine soul man who speaks with the native tongue of soul, jazz, blues and pop. His virtuoso vocal and piano work has made him not only an indispensable and highly sought after session musician, but a favorite on the soul, jazz and R&B scenes.

His fans affectionately describe his work as the perfect combination of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Frank has worked with many of the entertainment industry's giants including but not limited to: Prince, Branford Marsalis, George Duke, Patrice Rushen, The Rude Boys, Phil Perry, Tommy Davidson, Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Songwriting duo Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, rap duo D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (Will Smith), Frankie Beverly and Maze, Teena Marie, Lalah Hathaway, Terri Lynn Carrington, Phyllis Hyman, Valerie Simpson, Philip Bailey, and more.

After signing to Motown's short-lived jazz label "MoJazz" from 1992 until 1994, Frank was able to lend his vocal chops to the Buckshot LeFonque (Featuring Branford Marsalis) hit song "Another Day". It was this featured performance that would lead to a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1998 where Frank would record and release his debut CD "Love Stories" in 2000. In 2003, Frank would go on to sign with Malibu Sessions for the release of his 2nd CD entitled "The Truth Vol.1"

After a bit of soul searching, Frank decided to release his works independently and in 2004 he released his 3rd CD, "Straight From The Vault", an entirely self-written, self-produced and self-recorded CD that would win him the "SoulTracks Readers Choice Award" for "Best Album of the Year" and earn him a spotlight with Jill Scott in an August 2005 publication Oprah Winfrey's highly respected "O Magazine" as one of Ms. Scott's favorite CD's. "Straight From The Vault" also became Prince's favorite body of work by Frank McComb at the time. "Straight From The Vault" was followed by twelve album releases between 2006 and 2017 under Frank's own Boobeescoot Music label, the latest CD being his first with his Amsterdam based quartet "No Rehearsal/Live in Amsterdam". Frank McComb was honored by Music Radar as the 27th greatest keyboard player of all time.
