Frankie South is a session guitarist based in Brighton. After completing her Professional Musicianship degree in 2019, she was promptly swept onto the scene of musical theatre, performing as a dep guitarist in the award-winning West End show; Six The Musical. From here she was selected to perform as the official guitarist for the UK Tour production (2019/2020), showing in theatre venues of up to 2.5K capacity. This has continued post pandemic, meaning Frankie is currently touring with Six until 2022. During this tour, she also got involved in a televised performance at Wimbledon Studios as lead guitarist for Iranian artist ‘GOLA’, who was protesting for women’s rights in Iran 

Throughout the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, Frankie continued to work from home, performing remote sessions for songwriters and artists from her home studio. This includes being approached to remotely film and record a session for LA drag queen, Vicky Vox, for her recent YouTube series, The Vicky Vox Project. 

Frankie has also recently been involved with band ‘Remember Monday’ in one of their projects, and is currently working on an upcoming EP with country artist ‘Vicki Manser’, as well as other projects with her producer, Tim Prottey-Jones. 

After studying ‘Music Teaching Practise’ for a year, Frankie offers private tuition through online lessons and from her home in Brighton. See more about her teaching experience and methodologies on the ‘Tuition’ page.

Brighton is where Frankie has an abundance of experience playing in well known venues. Prior to completing her studies, she has worked with many bands and artists honing her technical skills in a variety of styles and genres. Being involved in multiple projects has enhanced her awareness as a guitarist and a musician.

Having performed in studios, gig venues, large theatres across the country, and taking part in multiple songwriter workshops, Frankie can adapt her playing to a variety of scenarios and environments.
