Frank-ly Lovin’ Folk/Punk

I love discovering new music and WXPN is a great place to do that.  As a member, I try to get to a Free at Noon concert at the World Café Live at least once a month.  Last Friday I checked out a great act, Frank Turner and his band The Sleeping Souls.  Turner’s described by Wikipedia as an English folk/punk singer-songwriter, and as strange as that may sound, his sound is strangely fantastic.

I love any kind of music with an edge and Tuner and his band definitely delivered with some hard rock riffs that you just had to move to but he also had a couple softer, more folky songs with lyrics that evoked feelings and that listeners could relate. I especially liked his songs “Losing Days” and “The Way I Tend to Be.” I’m including a link to a live performance of “Losing Days” here so you can check him out too.

Despite having just released his fifth studio album, Tape Deck Heart in April,  I shamefully had never heard of Frank Turner until last week. He is now an artist I will keep on my radar.
