  • BIO

    Formed in 2017, Frame 42 is a 4-piece hard rock band that exemplifies the modern Gen Z mentality; offering vintage rock sensibilities with powerhouse melodies. The group represents the emerging voice of a Generation who are navigating the new normal.

    Frame 42 features Ava Morris (lead vocals), Michael Greyson (lead guitar), Brock Morris (bass) and Lucas Jacobs (drums). Ava and Michael are 20 years old, and Brock and Lucas are 18 years old.

    In 2019, legendary music producer, Toby Wright (Korn, Sevendust, Alice in Chains, KISS) took the group under his wing and began developing the group when moved by their undeniable talent. “Frame 42 is one of the most talented bands I’ve ever had the pleasure to produce. Their musical abilities outshine their youth. Ava Morris is an exceptional talent. Her voice rivals all of your favorite singers,” says Producer, Toby Wright.

    This emerging Michigan group is creating their own unique sound and brand. Their collective passion for music and entertainment is compelling and that driving force is what pushes them to take control of their future at a young age.

    Each member brings their own unique perspective to the creative process. “Lucas brings funk, Brock brings metal, Michael brings hard rock and I bring folky lyrics with classic melodies,” explains lead singer, Ava.

    “We write all of our original music as a group, and that’s how most of our songs come to life. The main thing that inspires me is to become better as a musician, to reach the level of the artists that have inspired me,” says guitarist, Michael.

    “An important factor in the band’s identity is that we function as a family. Instead of functioning like co-workers, we’re all friends, so we are able to spend time together as best friends who love making music,” adds bassist, Brock. “That is the key factor to us staying happy as a band, and it shows in the music as well. In order to consistently make music, we all have to be in a good place with each other and communicate like a family,” says drummer, Lucas.

    Their forthcoming music was recorded in December of 2022 at Big Block Sound, a private studio in Linden, Michigan. It was produced and engineered by Toby Wright. Frame 42 has developed a large following in their home state of Michigan with support from stations like Flint’s Banana 101.5 and 103.9 The Fox as well as Detroit rock giant WRIF including an interview with Meltdown on his podcast “Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown”. The band continues to grow building fans through touring with national acts Joyous Wolves, Smile Empty Soul and playing Festivals like Blue Ridge Rock Fest and Earth Day Birthday in Florida. They’re known for delivering power-packed live shows with impeccable rock n’ roll timing. Frame 42 produces organic and authentic rock music in a digital age.

    As time keeps slippin’ into the future, Frame 42 is hard at work representing the next generation of musicianship, work ethic and comradery. For more info: Frame42.com
