My Life In Music – Frank Turner
Most of us know Frank Turner as one of the most popular contemporary singer/songwriters of recent years. He has mixed a rocky sounding vibe with acoustic folk, providing a great backdrop for others to follow. Whilst the Hampshire born singer may not consider himself a trailblazer, we genuinely believe the success of some of the current belt of folk-esque singers can only have been helped by Frank Turner and the reaction he received from fans and critics alike.
We thought it was only right, as a friend of Music Eyz, that we ask Frank Turner to kick off our new feature. Frank Turner, “This is Your Life” well in music anyway.
