FRANK GET BAND
Lead Vocals, Guitars, Mandolin and Piano
Frank Get is a multitalented singer, guitar, piano and bass player, and also a composer, from Trieste, yet well known to the Italian and European public. In his forty years long music career he took part in a lot of different projects and collaborated with many international artists. He’s a multi-ethnic musician (he’s Istrian, Slavic, and Hungarian) who has been able to enhance Blues and Rock in every facet. During his forty-year career he felt the need to investigate in depth his roots: he studied the events happened in his land which suffered over the years incredible derangement with two World Wars, migrations, and many administrative changes. Characterized by a dense lyricism, rich in history and curiosity, Frank Get continues the journey already begun with the album “Gray Wolf” preserving the historical memory of the roots through lyrics and melodies that speak of events, men and characters lived in his city and in the neighbouring areas.
He has won many awards and participated to a lot of music festivals in Italy like the well known Sanremo festival plus other music competition in Italy and around the world like “Light of Day”, the benefit event organized by Bruce Springsteen for Parkinson fund-raising that take place in Stone Pony, Asbury Park, New Jersey.
“False Flag”, the fifteenth record published by Frank Get, will be released on the last day of 2019. In this new album, the artist explores and analyzes the historical truths of his birthplace, a cosmopolitan land with a great tradition of secular cohabitation, but also hard conflicts. The songs tell the story of some characters who stood out thanks to their own deeds and discoveries in different cultural and social contexts.
Frank Get, on the road since 1979, celebrates these 40 years of music career with “False Flag”, a great cultural product pervaded with historical memory and love for deep local roots. The explorer Richard Francis Burton and the astronomer Johann Nepomuk Krieger are just some of the main characters of the new songs. “False Flag” is a record that wants to pay tribute to the great people from Trieste and surroundings, pushing the listener to actively oppose those who manipulate and rewrite history, destroy monuments and vestiges of the places in which we live.
