ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FRANK McCOMB BIO

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: Prince, Branford Marsalis, George Duke, Patrice Rushen, Gerald Levert, The Rude Boys, Phil Perry, Tommy Davidson, Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Chaka Khan, 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, American Idol's Rickey Minor, Philip Bailey, Teddy Pendergrass and so many more.

Record Signing’s: Signed to Motown’s short-lived jazz label “MoJazz” from 1992 until 1994. In 1994, Frank left Motown and joined Branford Marsalis' versatile and eclectic band Buckshot LeFonque where he was able to lend his vocal chops to the 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”.

Flying Solo: 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 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 eleven album releases between 2006 and today under Frank’s own Boobeescoot Music label. Frank's soulful offering, "Soulmate" (released November 18, 2014) is a 4-song EP that is currently gaining the recognition and respect of some of music's top critics. The complete CD "Soulmate: Another Love Story" will be released on Frank's birthday, July 15, 2016. Frank was also named one of the 27 greatest keyboard players of all time by “Music Radar”.

What the music industry need
Just bought ' Soulmate: Another Love Story' by Frank McComb. I had high expectations because his music never let me down before. But this one is more than I could have expected. For instance; Muse, Mustard seed (feat. Najee) Labelled as love (feat Maysa Leak) and We're gonna be on our own...just a few songs that really touch your soul and stay on your mind. High level music (as always) and really beautiful lyrics too. In my opinion this is really what the music industry, the world needs. Honestly. You won't be dissapointed if you buy this beautiful album.

Phenomenal Work!
Frank McComb does it again! He never disappoints and this masterpiece just might be his BEST work! There's so much here with the generous number of songs included. Many of his songs touch me emotionally as we've all gone through things in life whether it be about good love, the lack of it, family values and our spirituality with a high power. Frank's smooth voice just puts me a feel good mood as he masters the keyboard with depth and energy. This album is a must have in every music lover's collection. Highly Recommended!

A concept album that deserves your attention
15 years ago, I can remember surfing the net and exploring new music. I came across this album entitled "Love Stories" by Frank McComb and after previewing it I went to a record store (remember those?) and bought the CD (remember THOSE?). What amazed me about that album was that there was so much to like. From the musicianship, to the vocals, to the melodies to the lyrics to the cohesiveness, it was a concept album based on forms of love that ended up being one of my favorite albums of the aughts.

15 years and 10 albums later, we get the unofficial sequel, entitled "Soulmate: Another Love Story." It is a project that is not only focused on giving fans of McComb what they are looking for, but expanding sounds and ideas to help bring new fans on board. The catch is, there are various forms of love discussed. The album starts off with a song entitled "Mustard Seed" that is woven throughout the 17 tracks, including versions featuring great solos by Najee and David P. Stevens. Focusing on the familiar scripture of Mathew 17:30, McComb’s refrain of “all you need…is faith the size of a mustard seed” is a simple yet effective reinforcement of God’s love for us and ours for him allowing us to do what others may deem impossible.

Another concept of love that permeates throughout the album is the romantic love between man and woman. One of the highlights of this form comes from one of the songs that share the name of the album. On “Another Love Story,” McComb is able to effortlessly tie in the majority of song titles from the afore-mentioned Love Stories album while illustrating the importance of taking the time to find the right love:

“Listen to your heart. If they’re not your soulmate you’ll be wasting your time.
So keep pushin’ on. If you do you’re bound to find the right one some other time.”

“You Will Know When Love Is Real” is another song that serves as a guide to love. On this song, McComb write’s from a male’s point of view the tale of how you feel when you first fall in love., and knowing that it’s the right love to feel. This will be one of the songs that will get the repeat treatment often. From the great melody and hook, to Stevens again commanding a great guitar performance, to McComb’s layering of vocals and harmonies. “Feelin” Some Kinda Way” features Avery’Sunshine and Najee, and also tells of the initial feelings of love and captures the emotions one can feel when meeting that special someone.

One concept of love that is an undercurrent throughout this album, in both direct and indirect ways, is McComb’s obvious love for musicianship. One look at the liner notes and you see an A-List of guest appearances, including Deborah Bond, on “There Are No Words” and Maysa on the duet “Labelled as Love”, but this album is clearly crafted in a way that puts McComb in the forefront of true musicianship. The instrumental jam “Like Chicken” showcases his true keyboard and Rhodes chops. There is also a unique take on Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” that will leave your ears speechless, but it’s the song “We’re Gonna Be On Our Own” that may show McComb’s love for music the most. It’s a plea for all of us to show love and appreciation for music and to protect its value and the legends that have paved the way.

“There was once a time, when the music made the song and lyrics spoke of love right or wrong.
And when falling in love, you could use the words of any love song and send to the one you wanted to call your own.
Music gave people life, diffused the biggest fights, and helped a lot of men find their wives.”

In 2016, concept albums that hit the mark are quite rare, but Frank McComb was able to deliver one with this latest offering. Soulmate: Another Love Story is a true concept album centering on various forms of love that exists in our lives. Love of God, people, and music are made easy to discover through McComb’s vocals and arrangements, guests and lyrics. This album has the makings of being on many a best of 2016 list when it’s all said and done, and promises to be a musical story that many will want to hear for years to come.
