Recording and performing his music has been his life long dream. Frank hopes that everyone enjoys his songs and finds a connection to each and everyone of them. Frank's first introduction to music came at the age of three. He remembers sneaking into his grandfather's closet to strum his old acoustic guitar. Later, at the age of six, his family relocated from North Africa to Rome where he was able to enjoy the romantic sounds produced by his father's accordion. Next, at the age of eight he found himself, along with his family, relocating to the good old USA.
Finally, at the age of thirteen, Frank was introduced to the great sounds of, a well known band known as, the "Beatles". After that, life as he knew it would never be the same.
his new CD entitled "Sleepwalk" was released and available since October 1, 2011. It is a combination of jazz, smooth jazz, and easy listening
