Frank Amanze
A Layered Modern Blend of Rustic Pop




The Man
A rustic blend of modern pop from a jack of all, master of none singer-songwriter, best sums up Frank Amanze. His music, lyrics and laid-back approach showcase a sarcastic modern balladeer and an ancient troubadour all in one. With an array of influences from Elvis Costello to Boys 2 Men and Robert Johnson to Meatloaf, Frank’s music hits the mark between love and sorrow as his lyrics mix the social and romantic observations from the view on a barstool. A familiar and similar tone of artists such as John Mayer, BabyFace and Damien Rice resonate in Frank’s sound as he shares his voice, his ideas and his stories in song. Topped off with a neo-folk touch and a disarming shy confidence, Singer- Songwriter Frank Amanze delivers a Layered Modern Blend of Rustic Pop.

The Studio
“Frank Amanze’s CD “Without Regrets” winds personally and poetic through guitar and piano based singer/songwriter tunes. Troubadour vocal style with darkly sad and personal lyrics spark the imagination as Amanze disguises regret in melody and message…’Ohio’ is a gem of a tune that begins with lyrics, ‘You can’t feed every bum you meet’…You can’t help but hear narrative reflections ala Springsteen…One of the more lyrical on the record is track 11’s, “It’s Not Me”. Amanze travis-picks as he contemplates, ‘I sat through the worst of what you dished out baby, I’m sorry, it’s not me that calls each night at 2am, and I can’t make you skip a beat, and it’s not me that holds you close while you’re asleep’… Amanze’s tenor-blessed voice soars high in the verses, ‘when she finds herself far away from that place, and she becomes a memory of a drifter lost in space’ in a timbre that gives a Neil Young empathy. And so it ends…The artist leaves the listener without any resolution…in a secret dark place where we relate.” - Earbuzz.com
