“EVERY SONG STARTS WITH A STORY”
Frank has been singing all of his life. His love for music started at an early age in Fresno, CA where he was a singer in the local Cub Scout band.
In high school (Alameda CA) he was an Eddie Fisher “sound a like” singing at local “gig’s.”
In the early 70’s he seriously began writing after hearing James Taylor’s first album and has never stopped.
Frank has been married since “58’ and has two boys, both terrific musicians themselves.
Frank believes the best songs are always crafted around good story-telling.This is probably why many of his songs take on a “Country” type feel. Take his song “Ridin’ on That Train,” tells the story of a young lad on the train to clear his head. We find out that the tracks on his body leads to a sad ending. “LA Town” is a story about Frank’s career as a San Francisco banker and how he loved to go south and learn. His northern bosses didn’t always like the changes he made. “Drag The Main” is a Hagar type rocker that tells a story about driving his car down main street with his girl.”Run Jack Run’ is a dog lover’s story about man’s best friend and how the dog didn’t back down on the trail when he was confronted by a large cat. “Sweet Honey Pie” is a love story done to a blues beat. You can see that Frank’s stories are a central point of his songs.
Recently Frank was joined by Polo Jones whom has produced ten of Frank’s songs. Polo is well know for his bass playing with The Zucchero Band, Sting, Eric Clapton and Pavarotti just to name a few.
Frank is an ascap writer and publisher (Frank A.Dicker Music).
