Frank Turner: DoTM

Frank Turner is a singer/songwriter that was born in December 1981 in Bahrain, although he is British.

He was the vocalist for the London-based hardcore punk rock band Million Dead before they disbanded in 2005.

Strangely enough, his solo stuff is nothing near his previous endeavor. His newer stuff is closer to a mix between folk and indie and from what I little I have heard of his solo stuff is reminiscent (in my opinion) of a British Violent Femmes.

  1. England Keep My Bones is probably the best record to come out this year, IMHO.
