Frank Vieira is a country musician from Pittsburgh. Hard work and craftsmanship defines Frank’s music career. A direct reflection of the way it started. It’s been a decade since first making his own acoustic guitar piece by piece in Kevin LaDue’s luthier class at Vestal High School. A class, and a guitar that sparked a journey across the country performing at some of the best Honky Tonks and festivals east of the Mississippi. Over the past 7 years Frank has built a resume and a buzz opening for some of the nation’s best while honing his own craft. With creative takes on lyrics, big radio hooks, and a live show that ooze with polish and confidence Frank is poised for a future as big as his heart. His latest release, “Heart Broke” from February of 2020, is currently charting on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart (Secondary Radio). I want to thank Frank for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
