Home Town

In the personal, storytelling style long associated with traditional folk music, Frank Meyer sings of his very real life in Upstate New York with thoughtful, and thought provoking, lyrics. That life, defined as English teacher by day and performing musician by night, is brought to us in "songs (that) relate a bittersweet poetry and philosophy of life..." says Jack Jones, of Gannett Rochester Newspapers.

Meyer defies categorizing into simply "folk" however. With the fiddle, banjo, and mandolin playing of the popular Dady Brothers, as well as the guitar picking of Maynard Penlon, Frank's guitar and vocals range through the sounds and tempos of bluegrass and country styles, too. And the lyrics are expressed by the melodies - the mournful violin on Set Yourself Free emphasizes the lonesome feelings of a relationship at an end. Additionally, the influence of Buffett, Dylan, Guthrie, Kristopherson, and others, can be heard on this album. In fact, Frank's voice is reminiscent of Kristopherson, lending a sincere reality to his lyrics - you know that he has met a few Bruce Weavers, has suffered the frustrations of the Underrated One, savors the Seasons with his long time partner Siobhan, and, as narrated in the uptempo Crystals, sometimes his days come up blue - sometimes they come up gray.
