Bio, Quotes

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.

Frank has worked with many of the entertainment industry’s giants including but not limited to: 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, 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.​

Signed 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, F​rank 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 in 2005 earn him a spotlight with Jill Scott in Oprah Winfrey’s highly respected “O Magazine” as one of Ms. Scott's favorite CD's.
“Straight From The Vault” was followed by ​twelve​ album releases between 2006 and 201​4 under Frank’s own Boobeescoot Music label.​

"One of the 27 greatest keyboard players of all time". ~ Music Radar 

"No one has a more soulful, unique sound and style than Frank McComb. His knowledge of the history of various musical styles has allowed him to express whatever is on his mind with freedom and honesty." ~Terence Blanchard, Grammy Award Winning Jazz Trumpeter and Composer

"Frank McComb is one of the most gifted musicians I know! He has an amazing voice and can play anything! Blessed with so much talent but such a wonderful human being as well!" ~ Nathan East, Grammy Award Winning Bassist/Composer (Fourplay)

"Words fall short of describing the disarming wonder and enchanted awe
of seeing Frank McComb hijack the full-house show of Roy Ayers Ubiquity at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club. His virtuosic power and creative charisma channelled through "For All We Know". Left us all, including Roy, with the distinct awareness that we were in the company of a great and rare talent. Roy didn't let him off stage for the rest of the performance! Nor the audience couldn't get enough. I had to book him to perform the very next night!"  ~ Megg Evans, 22 years of managing Bennetts Lane Jazz Club/Melbourne Australia
