Ryan Tedder’s absence may have just been the break Frankmusik was looking for here in America. The OneRepublic singer-songwriter croons on Far East Movement’s current Top 40 single “Rocketeer.” But during FM’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! gig last night, up-and-comer (on these shores, at least) Vincent Frank—aka British electro whiz Frankmusik—filled in for Tedder by tickling the ivories and knocking the “Rocketeer” chorus out of the park with his quite beautiful falsetto. Watch below.
If you like what you hear, Frankmusik’s free EP Long Live Frankmusik is up for download ahead of the release of his forthcoming U.S. debut LP.
In the meantime, his 2009 UK album Complete Me and new single “The Fear Inside” are available on iTunes.
