Her distinctive vocal ability consisting of a broad melodic range of both contemporary and world techniques, has been praised by many for its originality and style.

Many of her original songs have been licensed for television and film.

Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Frances Byrne, "Frankie", has been producing compelling original music in a wide variety of genres her entire life.

Sweeping instrumentals with a world flavor, enhanced with captivating middle eastern style vocals is what she excels in. With rock, blues, and electronica not far behind.


Katreece Montgomery, "The Kat", has been drumming for several years. With experience in Japanese Taiko, the Middle Eastern doumbek, and African djembe. Katreece enjoys an eclectic combination of electronic drum triggers, and hand drums. Tribal rhythms, and delicate military style beats on the snare drum are what she loves most.

When she's not drumming, she's doodling and shooting video.

Both Frances and Katreece have performed in the past at many local San Francisco venues, including the legendary San Francisco Fillmore. And many other bay area hot spots.

After a long music hiatus, Frances Byrne and Katreece Montgomery are rockin' it with a new 2015 live show as Frankie and The Kat. Featuring covers from the 50's and 60's.
