The best kept secret in music


"Frank McComb ... The Truth"

Frank Mccomb is by far one of the best vocalists to come along since Donny Hathaway (to whom he is most often compared). Born in Cleveland and now residing in Los Angeles, Mccomb may be best known for his work as the lead vocalist in Branford Marsalis's group Buckshot LeFonque.

Mccomb's professional musical career dates back to the early 90's when he became the keyboardist and musical director for the (Gerald Levert produced) Rude Boys. In early 2000 the world was introduced to Frank Mccomb the solo artist. He released "Love Stories" on Columbia Records but due to promotion and marketing pitfalls "Love Stories" suffered in sales domestically. "Love Stories" is well worth the find and Mccomb deserves much more credit and praise for that project than he received.

In 2003 he returned to the scene with "The Truth" on U.K. Expansion Records. Mccomb joined forces with producer Steve Harvey who most recently produced Donnie's "The Colored Section." "The Truth" features a number of great artists like Billy Preston, Percussionist Paulinho De Costa and vocal diva Ledisi. Currently "The Truth" is not available domestically but if you are a serious Frank Mccomb fan, like I am, you can seek and find "The Truth" at

"Frank McComb"

Contemporary jazz singer/keyboardist Frank McComb was born in Cleveland on July 15, 1970, beginning his piano studies at age 12 and forming his first trio five years later.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Holding down his first jazz trio at 17, Frank McComb has been a music master since he first tickled the ivory keys at age 12 under the tutelage of an aunt.

Frank counts Herbie Hancock and Oscar Peterson as musical heroes. After one listen you can also throw Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Chick Corea into the potpourri of influences heard through Frank's various bodies of work.

He has recorded and performed with many of music's giants including: Frankie Beverly and Maze, Teena Marie, Chaka Khan, Lalah Hathaway, Terri Lynn Carrington, Phyllis Hyman and Teddy Pendergrass just to list a few.

He has also performed double duty with music and directing starting his career with Gerald Levert's Rude Boys “Written All Over Your Face” and most recently with Pop Diva, Anastacia.

The world got a taste of his genius on wax and on the road when young lion Branford Marsalis laid down his seminal Hip Hop Jazz recording Buckshot LeFonque which featured DJ Premier and Maya Angelou alongside his legendary ensemble of sidemen and artists. On the release of Buckshot LeFonque's second recording "Music Evolution" Frank handled the vocals on a hit called "Another Day".

Frank McComb has however defied all efforts to shut him down by remaining an active fixture on the live music scene performing around the world from London to Japan. Frank is confronted by fans everywhere that can't get his music and are left to purchase bootlegs off the Black Market.

Frank McComb, like so many artists, has gone the way of an independent warrior. After the exclusive European and Japanese release of his album "The Truth" which partnered him with producer Steve Harvey (Donnie's Welcome to the Colored Section) and showcased music legends Billy Preston, Paulinho DaCosta alongside Bay area favorite Ledisi; Frank culled together unreleased recordings from his vault and has presented them for the masses, worldwide.
