Frankie Bourne is a singer-songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area.
On his 2015 acoustic-laced debut studio album, Californicana, Frankie took a stance as a solo artist and emerged on the scene equipped with infectious roots-rock songs, and an authentic indie sound that, "combines the style of new Americana with all the things you loved about 90s adult alternative bands" (TourWorthy.com), and "a smoky, quick-tongued lyrical quality that can change speeds like a Zack Greinke change-up" (San Jose Rock Music Examiner).
Produced by LA producer Marc Danzeisen (Riverdogs), and featuring guitarists Johnny Hawthorn (Toad The Wet Sprocket, Everclear) and Manny Alvarez (Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, The Black Crowes), his first solo effort has been incredibly well-received by Indie, Rock and Americana radio stations nationwide, and won an award for best love song on the Jango Radio 2015 Valentine's Day Playlist, who call it, "a refreshing roots rock record for the 21st Century".
After a sold out record release show at the historic (and now permanently closed) House of Blues on the Sunset Strip, and a 15 city California tour, Frankie supported the record with a sporadically changing group of players in the LA club scene. At times his band included keyboardist Carey Frank (Tedeschi Trucks Band), saxophonist Jeremy Trezona (Saint Motel), bassists Andrew Perusi (Hanson) and Rusty Lowrey, and drummer Clinton Cameron (Fishbone), to name a few.
After six years in the Los Angeles music scene, Frankie returned to his native San Francisco Bay Area in 2016, where his new band has quickly begun to make a name for themselves in the North Bay for their explosive live shows, and their melodic roots-rock music that bridges eras of influence. Featuring drummer Jeff Nassi (Meredith Brooks, Fillmore Slim, Unauthorized Rolling Stones), guitarist Sunil Sharma (Alison Harris, Reality Check), and bassist Matt Pasquale (Gravity Hill), Frankie Bourne Band is his primary focus of late.
In March 2018 they entered the legendary Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County to track a 12-song roots-rock album, which is expected to release by end of the year. Simultaneously he is finishing an Americana album titled Pay To Play, which will be his first full-length follow up to Californicana. Produced by keyboard tech mastermind Peter Wiltz (Eagles, Rolling Stones, Madonna), the acoustic-driven record is planned to release in the near future.
