A good country song will have a story.
A lot of Frank's songs are crafted around good stories. Inspired by great musicians like James Taylor, Dave Mason, and Steve Winwood, Frank has developed his own songwriting style that combines elements of soft rock, country, Jazz, R&B and pop.
Franks song "Ridin' on That Train" was originally published by NBT Publishing in West Virginia and included in the CD "Ride The Train." Many other artists have recorded his original songs, which range from upbeat rock tunes to mellow ballads. Frank is a registered ASCAP writer and publisher.
Frank has been singing all his life. He was inspired by the balladers of the 50's, especially Eddie Fisher. Once Frank discovered James Taylor in the 70s, he knew he wanted to write his own music, and he has been writing and performing ever since.
His CD's are available for purchase, and his songs and albums can be downloaded from the Music Store as well as CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify and many more.
