ABOUT

I am a transplant from sunny California I am looking to collaborate, produce, engineer, write and or play on other artists songs as well as have other artists work on my music. I have written over 100 songs. I play all kinds of music and am open to most genres as long as it is a constructive situation. If you play any instrument or perhaps no instrument and you just like to write and sing I would be interested in working with you. Please no guitar wankers. No Jam sessions. I work out of my home studio where I write and play all instruments on my songs. As well I collaborate with Rich Sanders on Americana/accoustic music. I am committed as much as the reality of the situation calls for and I never try to take my life too seriously, lest I become a parody. If you would like to collaborate, contact me here at Bandmix if you are a premier member or I can be contacted at: frankiezmole.....rhymes with hahoo!
P.S. Over 70 tracks of mental musings can be heard at Soundclick as “ThegreatConstantini”

But today I listen to such a variety of artists such as Amy Mann, Wilco, Ween, Bare Naked Ladies, Radiohead, Mitchell Froom, Modest Mouse,Michael Penn, Amy LaVere, A Blue October, Shawn Colvin, Lisa Germano, Leonard Cohen, Wasis Diop,Sparkle horse,Paramore,The Belle Brigade,Bad Lieutenant, Father John Misty.
