Frank Zappia: piano player, singer, songwriter, composer

Frank Zappia is an Australian/Italian musician, based in Canberra, who creates his own version of "alt-pop". His songs might be delivered to you with a direct hit or subtly sneak up on you from beneath the radar, sometimes with elements of humour and Frank's own personal philosophy and observations thrown in for good measure. Frank spends a majority of his spare time in his small home studio making and recording music, however he sometimes plays live. Often it's a solo gig or one of a few and has occassionaly been involved in playing the music in local theatre productions. His instrumental compositions have featured as the soundtrack to some local short films. Frank’s love of all things piano and keys coincided with him learning to walk. He started singing for the first time ever in 2015, then gradually ventured into songwriting and released his debut album as a singer/songwriter in 2017, π™Žπ™–π™«π™žπ™£π™œ π™Žπ™€π™‘π™™π™žπ™šπ™§π™¨, produced by Freestone Productions in Canberra. In December 2019, Frank released a follow up album, entitled π™Žπ™©π™§π™–π™£π™œπ™š π™‡π™žπ™›π™š which he wrote, recorded and produced. On 11 November 2021, Frank released his third album, π™’π™š π˜Όπ™§π™š π™π™π™š π™Žπ™–π™’π™š, written during and inspired by the pandemic. The album was recorded by Frank in his home studio and mixed/mastered at Cubico Sound in Spain. It features Frank's first officially recorded cover song, Tears for Fears' π˜”π˜’π˜₯ 𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭π˜₯.”
