PENARTH teenager Frankie Wood has released her debut single to help raise awareness of mental health in young people.

The Stanwell School pupil has just released 'Thoughts Inside My Head'.

Even though she is just 14, Frankie is no stranger to the stage having performed at concert venues including the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and St David’s Hall, Cardiff.

The 14-year-old musician, a family member of local Penarth band ‘The Woods’, is working her way through her grades in Guitar and Clarinet, and is also a member of the Mark Jermin Stage School. 

On the release of 'Thoughts Inside My Head', Frankie said: "There are a lot of young people experiencing mental health issues, and I just wanted to let them know they're not alone.

“I have heard lots of stories about people my age really struggling with their mental health. I hope this song will help spread awareness of mental health issues in young people."

About her musical upbringing, Frankie said she was fortunate to come from such a talented family.

"I'm very lucky to come from a musical family with both my parents being musicians,” said Frankie.

“There's not a room in our house that doesn't have an instrument of some kind. I love playing music and writing songs." 

The new track is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes & Amazon Music. Go to for more information.

Frankie will also be appearing on stage at the Penarth Lawn Tennis Club Music and Food festival alongside her father, uncles and grandfather in ‘The Woods’ on Saturday, May 27.
