Frank Turner is a British songwriting and singer who manages to combine catchy melodies and punk rock enthusiasm in his music to create a distinct blend of sounds. First getting his start as vocalist for the post-hardcore band Million Dead, Turner then decided that screaming wasn't for him and opted to be a bit more subdued with his solo acoustic material. After splitting from his band, Million Dead, he started his solo career in 2005. Since then, he has released a few albums and toured with The Offspring summer tour as a support act.He often plays with other bands, such as Architects and Flogging Molly. The singer/songwriter's debut album, Sleep is for the Week, was released in 2007 and is widely considered to be a respectable blending of folk sensibilities and hard lined punk aesthetics.
