Biography

  • Frank Ocean (born October 27, 1987) is the stage name of extolled American R&B singer-songwriter Christopher Breaux, born in Long Beach, California, but raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.

    Raised on a healthy diet of local jazz and his mother’s CD collection which included Celine Dion and Anita Baker, during his teenage years Ocean would wash cars and mow lawns to pay for studio time. The singer later enrolled at the University of New Orleans before hurricane Katrina hit, which offered Frank Ocean some perspective and the singer subsequently moved to Los Angeles, California. Having recorded a number of demos at a friend’s studio, the alt-R&B singer earned a songwriting deal and began penning songs for the likes of Justin Bieber, John Legend, and Beyoncé.

    Reluctant to remain in the limelight’s shadow, Ocean joined the hype-inspiring hip-hop collective Odd Future in 2009. During his time with the group the singer’s songwriting found a new lease of life thanks to band member Tyler, the Creator, and Ocean subsequently inked a solo deal with Def Jam Recordings. In 2011 Ocean released his debut mixtape “Nostalgia, Ultra”, which was extolled by critics and fans alike. Endowed with natural R&B tones and a willingness to take experimental risks, the record introduced the singer to a new host of listeners and future collaborators. Later in 2011 the singer appeared on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album “Watch the Throne” raising the anticipation for his debut full-length.

    Frank Ocean’s released his first full-length album “Channel Orange” in July 2012, universally receiving widespread and absolute critical acclaim. Featuring hip-hop, soul and R&B influences, the record is one of powerful imagery and Ocean’s enviably confessional songwriting. Propelling the singer to the heights of musical success the record debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and produced the singles “Thinkin Bout You”, “Pyramids”, “Sweet Life”, and “Lost”. The record went on to earn Ocean six Grammy Award nominations and was supported by an extensive U.S and European tour.
