HAVING EVOLVED from the hardcore punk genre into folk and rock, singer-songwriter Frank Turner released his seventh album in November.
Entitled Songbook, it features a collection of the Eton-educated singer’s re-recorded favourite songs, as well as new single There She Is.
A prolific touring artiste, Turner has played more than 2,000 live shows and appeared at Reading (cap. 90,000) and Leeds (80,000) festivals a record 10 times in a row.
He is currently performing at venues such as Glasgow’s King Tuts Wah Wah Hut (300), Manchester’s Academy 2 (900), Birmingham’s O2 Institute 2 (600) and The Scala (980) in London. In May Turner will play four nights at Camden’s Roundhouse (3,100).
“Frank is one of the hardest-working artistes I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” says his international agent Nick Storch of Artist Group International in New York.
“He makes amazing and inspiring music, but also embraces a collaborative and creative approach to touring. It’s easier to build a strategy when the music continues to connect with fans on a deep level. To say it’s a dream every single day is a vast understatement.”
Turner is managed by Charlie Caplowe at Xtra Mile Recordings in London.
