Welcome to the official website of composer, producer and jazz pianist Rodney Franklin.
Rodney Franklin has spent a lifetime developing his art. From his earliest years as a child prodigy his music bypasses genre interweaving soulful, lightly textured fusion and funk with R&B, soul and, crowd pleasing dance and club hits. His talents, both as a composer and soloist are filled with infectious hooks and the rich production value of a life dedicated to musical genius.
“Music is an international language of peace.
No matter where I have traveled in the world, it has always allowed me to make friends and bring joy
-An understanding that runs deeper than words.”
The Fender Rhodes Concert – August 22, Oxnard California
The Fender Rhodes electric piano has played a large part in the history of funk and jazz music. Its signature tones helped make the sound of an era. As part of an anniversary celebration, Rodney (and countless celebrity players) participated in a soon to be released documentary. You can see a clip at the bottom of this page.
The first annual Rhodes concert will be held this year in Oxnard California on August 22. This is your chance to hear it live and experience the joy and mastery of some of the world’s greatest players first hand.
