Frank Penner A little History From the show stages of Reno Nevada USA to the burley wilds of the Yukon Territory in Canada, Frank has been writing and performing original songs for the past forty five odd years with his music of diverse styles from Roots and Blues, Jazz Fusion, Rickety Tick, and Progressive Country styles, and continues to implement and introduce an assonance with uplifting lyrics and melody into Lullaby's, ballads, odes, love songs, and the psalms, hymns and spiritual songs of gospel. Weaving the song blanket by the hands of faith and keeping the foot gear on a solid rock foundation, and the roots of life anchored by the water fed chorale streams in spiritual and earth treading songs. The celestial and terrestrial combine and elope with perceptive lyrics to portray the many decisions, variables and diversities of life . With his wife Joan, they have performed hundreds of times over the past thirty five years and have recorded five albums and continue to sing their song at festivals, rodeos, individual concerts, country halls, theaters, banquets rooms, churches and the many assorted venues throughout the country. Inspired by the people like "The Mighty King David", "Blood Sweat And Tears," "Phil Driscol," "Waylon Jennings", "Ray Price", "BJ Thomas", "Charlie Daniels Band" and the likes, Frank developed his own style with an "out on a limb" attitude of challenge knowing that God has placed gifts and abilities in you for people and to give back some of what's been given. Franks songs have been recorded by various other artists and now is putting his music out in a variety of albums for the listeners who enjoy the various styles of his music. "The acknowledgement to realize there's nothing really New under the Sun, you just give it our own design and twist and honor what uniqueness is available through those that compose and reveal music in their personal styles and ability"
