Frank Javois is a second generation Crucian-American from the DMV area.  He began his musical journey at the age of 15 by studying the trombone at Fairmont Heights High School in Capitol Heights, MD.  Like many musicians he nurtured his musical passion in church more specifically, the New Home Baptist Church. His passion for music afforded him the opportunity to study music at the Bowie State University where he performed in the marching, jazz, and concert bands. While a student at Bowie State, Frank became a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated, while honing his musical skills on and off campus.

Shortly thereafter, Frank made a contentious decision to postpone his collegiate plans and pursue other endeavors. Frank soon found himself working a nine to five. During this period of time he started to make a name for him self as a go-to bassist within the DC area.  While living the comfortable life working for PEPCO and gaining benefits, he soon found himself in a dilemma that many artists face. His true passion and strong affinity for the bass was being side railed, as his energy was being split. He knew all along that his ultimate goal was to become a successful musician, Therefore; he courageously dedicated himself to the art form of music. He left the cushy day job and distinguished himself as a full-time musician. This sacrificial decision, while not an easy one, proved to be one of his greatest declarations. Not long thereafter, he made his way to become the bassist at The Ebenezer AME Church (Ft. Washington, MD) under the direction of gospel recording artist, Byron Cage.

Through hard work and dedication, Frank found himself performing with national and international recording artists such as: Byron Cage, Q Parker (of R&B group, 112), Kurt Karr, and Donnie McClurkin, to name a few. He has also made multiple television appearances on BET Network's Bobby Jones Gospel. Frank is currently producing and performing on a few recording projects with independent artists, and making his name known, as one of the premier bassists on the east coast. He's becoming a better musician by experimenting with multiple genres." One of his favorites quotes are, "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." Frank's work ethic and undying loyalty to his instrument will prove him to be one of the great bassists of his generation. And to those of you who will have an opportunity to see him perform live, buckle your seat belts as you are in for a thrill.
