Frank Quintero was born into a family of musicians in Caracas, Venezuela. He was one of eight children and came to love and play musical instruments at a very young age. By the time he was ten he was playing guitar, the tres (a Cuban instrument,) and the drums. By 14 he was in a formal musical school learning music theory and performance. It was at about this time that he also became a vocalist. Ten years later he studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Quintero became the first Venezuelan to record in the U.S with his own band, which helped to launch his successful career in music. He has a large discography to his credit and has traveled the world performing. He recently recorded with Don Grusin and the “all stars” on the Hang album.
