Every song starts with a story. Singer/songwriter Frank Dicker believes the best songs are usually crafted around good stories. Inspired by great musicians like James Taylor and Dave Mason, Frank has developed his own songwriting style that combines elements of soft rock, country, and pop. Franks song "Ridin' on That Train" was 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 Dicker has been singing all his life. In high school he was nicknamed Eddie because of his singing resemblance to popular crooner 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. Frank continues to perform as a solo act. His CD's are available for purchase, and individual songs can be downloaded from the Music Store.
