This is ME
My name is Frank Renfordt, I live in a small-town called Hohenlimburg in Germany. I started to be enthusiastic about music when I listened to recordings that belonged to my older brother, it was the time of the Beatles, Monkeys, Bee Gees and many others. I sang along without having a clue what the songs were about. Some of these great songs are still among my favorites today.
At some point my parents bought me a guitar and before I could play the chords properly, I had written my first song. On my musical journey I've liked and listened to all kinds of genres, but I was always in favor for melodic songs and l liked to hear guitars playing, so it's no wonder I fell in love with Country Music.
Occasional business trips to America strengthened my connection to Country Music. I got involved with the Nashville songwriting scene, became a member of SongU.com and NSAI (Nashville Songwriter Association International) and enjoyed learning so much about the craft of songwriting and started to see some success. I placed in the NSAI charts, won second place in a lyric competition of the 'American Songwriter' magazine. I also reached the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) with three of my songs and I established some personal contacts to Nashville's 'Music Row'. Some of my songs have been shortlisted for a 'major project'. I hope the journey will continue for a long time...and I believe the best is yet to come.
