Having spent years trailing the UK hardcore circuit in politically-charged rock bands, Frank Turner grabbed an acoustic guitar in 2005 and dug deep for personal, introspective, and rousing folk tunes. Loyal to Xtra Mile after Million Dead's split, his steady rise from pubs and people's bedrooms has seen him play in places as far removed as the US and China, support Green Day at Wembley Stadium, play the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, and headline the O2. Yet, he's never turned his back on his roots, and continues to support independent venues, play smaller towns, and work with a host of of rising musicians. With a top three charting album to his name in Tape Deck Heart,
a silver album in Love Ire & Song
, and a gold album in England Keep My Bones,
Frank is not only the hardest working musician from the UK, he is probably one of the most inspiring and successful independent musical entertainers around.
