Franki is an independent producer and video dj who has spent much time supporting smaller unsigned independent bands to get recognition with her online TV show called "FRANKI DOLL'S TOYBOX" on FLASHROCK.COM. She also does guest interviews for HOLLYWOOD MUSIC TV as well.
Franki helps throw cancer benefits and spends time talking to people about the trials she has undergone, she is a survivor of a suicide she witnessed 3 months after turning 18 and has been an advocate for helping prevent teen suicides since then. Franki Doll is affectionately known for her altruistic heart and actions any place she can help raise awareness & heal.
She is what she calls "using her gifts for the reason they were given to her". Franki believes that we are all unique and amazing, some of us have found our greatness, some are still looking, and she invites you to read her lyrics, listen to Franki Doll & The Broken Toys music - "You may find yourself there too"...
WELCOME TO THE BROKEN TOY ARMY!!!
I watch this little girl... 5 feet tall, covered in tattoos - teeny little girl - stand up at the microphone, smile at us, and yell with all her might to the crowd: "You may love us... and... You may hate us! But you WILL f**king remember us tomorrow!!!" As the band blows my face off with the first song... and they were right... I REMEMBERED THEM... fell in love with them, and have been a fan ever since. They were the best live band I had seen in years.
Franki Doll & The Broken Toys have been called "The Hardest Working Unsigned Band" in the US, won the OC Music Awards "BEST LIVE BAND IN ORANGE COUNTY" award & "Most Memorable Front Person Award", and called "The most incredible live band you've never heard of"... but truth be told, they are just 5 friends, who love to be with each other and play music.
Based out of Orange County, CA. these 5 musicians have set out to do the impossible, and it seems they are well on their way. They have no record deal to speak of, they have no financial backing, they all work regular 9-5 jobs and pour their heart and soul (and paychecks) into every song they make. Their music isn't polished or written for them, it is raw, and real and from within... the music comes from real life experience of pain and loss and life and new chances and the ability to say "So What, yeah, that happened, "NOW WHAT?!" Their singer Franki Doll has been a staple in the music scene for many years and is known underground for her online TV Show "Franki Doll's Toybox", and guest appearances with some of the greats.
Thanks to the "Local Static" program across the US with ShockHound and Hot Topic, Franki Doll & The Broken Toys was able to place their very first CD, "Step Right Up" in select stores across the US. Franki Doll & The Broken Toys is scheduled to be Hot Topics "Unsigned Band Of The Month" for January 2011.
Franki Doll & The Broken Toys have opened for bands like The Misfits, Escape The Fate, Story Of The Year, TSOL, The Adicts, I Am Ghost, Authority Zero, Rufio, Face To Face and many many more... they have won the OC Music Awards Best Live Band category, and have won every single Battle Of The Bands they have entered.
Their fans - called "The Broken Toy Army" are some of the most loyal fans you will ever meet. They invite you to join the Broken Toy Army... and find yourself a home with the rest of the Broken Toys of this world. If you've never been broken, you won't get it... but if you have... every song that pours from their instruments will touch your heart.
Franki Doll & The Broken Toys are one of the most energetic and amazing acts you can experience live. Get their CD's at HOT TOPIC across the U.S., on iTunes or your favorite online store... you won't be dissapointed!!! JOIN THE BROKEN TOY ARMY
