PickUpSound/ Helge review of the CD "Being Frank":
"Being Frank dares...
Being Frank mixes style with success and a smile on their lips. There is art in their music, and they make beautiful ballads. My favourite song is Home Again"

Being Frank contacts the label Whiteout to get a helping hand from people who know the Danish music industry. Whiteout was founded by Emil Jørgensen from the former DK band Swan Lee and knows quite well what we are facing out there?
Being Frank are SO pleased with being appreciated by Whiteout!

London: Beatpick Records (fairplay Music) says about BF´s first album:
"NICE ALBUM!!! You sound energetic ENERGETIC and PASSIONATE! And you have a good production, too."
BeatPick will include Being Frank in their catalogue, that will be heavily promoted around early February as BeatPick goes live1/2 2006.
Beatpick normally receives 20 demos each day.
In other words: BF now has a superb platform in the UK music industry! BeatPick is a non-exclusive, internet-based music site with selected bands. Their site is also represented in Italy and Spain.
This will be the platform abroad for Being Frank. In Denmark we already enjoy the initiative PickUpSound.

PickUpSound is launched on the Internet with more than 20 bands, including Being Frank. A great effort has been made by PickUpSound to promote their site. Around 170,000 banners promoting the site have been bought on Danish music sites. This is very helpful to the bands that they have chosen to cooperate with. Thank you, PickUpSound? well done!

Kultunaut review of the album "Being Frank":
"The sound of Britain! Being Frank does not suffer from being limited to only one genre. Musical talent is evident. The song French Love is absolutely GORGEOUS! This is an IMMENSELY INTERESTING DEBUT! "

Diskant.dk review of the album "Being Frank:
"I could go on mentioning each and every song, the fact is: All songs on the CD are extremely well composed, well played and catchy!
The combination of genres is very successful. Being Frank has a UNIQUE SOUND, no other Danish bands sound like this.
It is no problem that a band is addressing a large audience as long as they stick to the art and originality of their music. Being Frank manages to do this."

Who said booking? Danish cutting edge booking company Musikformidlingen / www.danskmusik.com gives Being Frank´s music the thumbs up!
We enjoy the great company of Kashmir, Dicte, TV2, Big Fat Snake, Dodo, etc., etc :-)
This is a great honour, and we'll do whatever it takes to make this agreement a success! Being Frank is the first rockband / original music that is allowed access to their site in a year!
It's often much harder to find a really good booking company than a small record contract.

Agreement with the Danish Broadcasting Company, DR: they'll distribute the album "Being Frank" to all playlist committees, all programs ? simply all relevant people at DR. But Being Frank isn?t represented by a major record label or distributed by a big player, so we don?t expect airplay for a while.

PickUpSound: Being Frank is contacted by record label PickUpSound. It seems they picked up a CD that we distributed in September. They use the words "great potential" about Being Frank and offer to sign us. PickUpSound Records is a non-exclusive Internet record label ? a great PR platform for BF.

We have just received 1,000 digipack 11 track albums printed in Holland and 1,500 three-track minijacks printed in Denmark. Now what? Let?s get a little bit famous in no time. This week we start spreading most of the 1,500 minijack CDs to educational establishments, DTU, RUC and KUA, etc.
We will also distribute from RUST, Loppen and Stengade 30. We think this is better and easier than putting up posters and having trouble with the police. A lot of people out there will know us pretty soon!
