•• Frank Turner (Solo) ••

31 January 2019

A former member of punk rock band Million Dead, Frank Turner turned his attention to folkier, acoustic music after the demise of the hardcore outfit.

He has since transformed himself into a singer and songwriter of consequential folk-punk rebel songs (that cover topics as such atheism, excessive drinking, and the power of rock & roll).

Drawing press comparisons to Billy Bragg and Bruce Springsteen, among others, Turner nonetheless occupies a niche of his own in British popular music, and has developed a large international following.

"The provocative singer-songwriter balances the profane and the polite with a set that triggers a joyous mass sing-along" The Guardian
