LA's Singing Fiddler
What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?
The person playing it. Meet Andrew Frankel, the guy getting people excited to see and hear the untapped versatility of the violin. Rocking theaters with Pink Floyd tribute bands, charming audiences opening for live comedy shows, shredding his bow with country acts throughout the Southwest and globally during Youtube livestreams, Andrew enjoys working a crowd and toying with expectations all while singing at the same time.
"...undeniable energy, powerful voice, and doing things I didn't know where possible on the violin..."
"Really puts on a show--takes requests--I've honestly never seen anything like him"
"Refreshing interpretations of songs I was surprised he even knew"
Voice and Violin in Perfect Harmony
Playing the fiddle like you've never heard, Frankel breathes new life into your favorite songs with his unique method for singing and playing the violin, mesmerizing audiences with live performances that draw you deep into reinterpreted classics and thoughtful original songs.
A fan of everything from jazz, country, classic rock, and modern pop, Andrew gained an audience performing live online taking requests and playing original songs like "Super-human" with his six-string electric fiddle—the Viper.
As a performer, his strength is reading and reacting to the energy of the room. That, and his ability to take live requests, improvise, mashup classics, and reach deep into his early classical training for that more typical violin sound make him what an entertainer should be—fun.
As a collaborator, he knows when to take a back seat, pass solos around, and can instantly harmonize—so if you need backing vocals and strings, he's a two-fer.
