I am posting a song today by another artist from England. Frank Turner is a singer-songwriter who attended Eton College. He got his start in punk rock, but when his band broke up in 2005, he started a solo career that was based on his love of acoustic and folk music. He is backed by his band called “The Sleeping Souls.”
According to an article in The Telegraph on February 13, 2014, he was described as a great live performer who has a sense of community among his fans. The article says:
“Turner is British music’s secret star. He’s a bearded, posh, 32-year-old former hardcore punk who has stealthily built up an incredibly loyal audience who respond to his directness, inclusiveness, sweaty commitment to performance and simple, uplifting songs. He’s not quite a British Bruce Springsteen, although there is something of the Boss’s charismatic commitment to the audience and the communal rituals of performance.”
I really like this song and hope you enjoy it. I think it is great song writing and I love the music and the lyrics.
