A former member of punk rock band Million Dead, Frank Turner turned his attention to folkier, acoustic “musics” after the demise of the aforementioned hardcore outfit.
Born in Bahrain in 1981, Turner was educated at Eton College in England. His first foray into the world of punk and rock, with the band Kneejerk, came to an end in 2000, and he soon found himself joining up with Million Dead. Over the course of that band’s four-year lifespan, Million Dead released two critically lauded albums, but the band decided enough was enough and called it a day in 2005.
Turner decided to explore a different world after Million Dead, focusing on his love of folk and country, with acoustic guitar being the guiding force.
The Way I Tend To Be is taken from the new album Tape Deck Heart.
