Born in California, Frank always found himself infused with the Optimism of the Golden State — as reflected in the music of The Beach Boys, even after their “too simple” early songs had lost popularity with a portion of its audience. (Though wasn’t it Sir Paul McCarthy who said that the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds was “the Greatest Album ever made” – and had inspired their own Sergeant Pepper’s Masterpiece?!) For Frank came to find that Brian Wilson’s unorthodox chord and melodic construction and unique harmonies transcended the initial lifestyle themes of their songs – to increasingly represent more complexity as their music matured. From this, he draws inspiration by endeavoring to find new possibilities in the words and music he creates that probe the themes of ambiguity, nuance and paradox, regret and redemption, regarding life’s choices and its possibilities. Frank’s additional musical explorations have led him to find expression in symphonic rock, young female pop, and even heavy metal genres. The exploration of common-but-deeply-felt human questions -- accompanied by the search for genuine meaning -- is attempted with each new composition.
