[Lead Guitar - Rhthym Guitar - Bass Guitar]
Frank is a unique and gifted musician with an ear for the finer details of music production, chunky riffs and catchy melodies.
Frank worked with Jan-Marie on the album called Back 2 Back for a whole year in and out of the studio in 2011. This album was finally released in the second half of 2013. Frank's guitar style sounds heavily influenced by rock and blues with a white man funk twist. Using his mixed eastern and western mixed origins and a familiar American rock sound blended with the folk roots of Jan-Marie gives the music on the album a rich meloday and strong solid upbeat tempo. Frank is also based on the Gold Coast and performs when Jan-Marie is doing large tours and plays material from the album Back 2 Back.
