"She doesn't just push boundaries but smashes them out of the solar system” – Tony Birch, FATEA

Frankie Archer has exploded onto the electrofolk scene with music that transcends stereotypes using a combination of manipulated samples, synths, drum tracks and earthy Northumbrian fiddle and voice to capture her audience. Her aim? To shake up genres and traditions, challenge perspectives and call for a fairer future.

Winner of the 2023 Christian Raphael Prize, Frankie has been featured on Later… With Jools Holland and championed by tastemakers at BBC Radio 2 and 6Music. Following the release of her debut EP Never So Red (November, 2023), she has supported the likes of Futureheadsand The Last Dinner Party. With her unique live set turning heads wherever she goes, Frankie is quickly establishing herself as “one to watch” in the alternative space.
