FRANKIE JOBLING - 'Grateful'
Frankie Jobling sings about heartbreak and self-love on ‘Grateful’
The 29th of April sees the release of ‘Grateful’, the latest track from Newcastle based Neo-soul singer and songwriter, Frankie Jobling. Coming a year after her previous offering, Jobling has ensured that it was well worth the wait, fashioning a track that exhibits her best qualities.
Frankie Jobling sings with a confidence and charisma that elevates her compositions to new heights. The subtle backing provided by Jobling’s band places her vocals at the forefront of the track. Jazzy guitar playing, laidback beats and a smooth bassline are the perfect accompaniment for her strong and soulful voice. When this is combined with gorgeous melodies, it is the perfect instrument for conveying her potent lyrics about rediscovering self-love.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the lyrics and the effect she hopes the track will have on others, Jobling explained: “I wrote this track from the experience of the darkest times of my life when I didn’t think I’d ever be happy again because of an awful relationship, but like the song says, I took a date with my self-worth, it was the sweetest breakthrough - I fell in love with myself and my life again, and listening to the song now makes me emotional and reminds me of how far I’ve come and how proud I am of myself - and I hope it can do this for others.”
‘Grateful’ is available to stream from 29th of April. Jobling’s exceptional voice as well as her talent for songcraft are clear for all to see on this song. Frankie and her band are sure to light up the stage during her upcoming live performances at Lindisfarne Festival and the inaugural A Stone’s Throw Festival.
