American Proust

Frank Marzano

In cart Not available Out of stock

Produced by Mike Miller (Acoustic Ear Candy), Frank's third album reprises familiar elements (catchy melodies, quirky chord changes, clever lyrics) while drawing from a wider palette (blues, funk, country, jazz).

Thematically, the lyrics paint a picture of middle-age angst: missed opportunities ("Love's the Only Way Home", "Don't Throw Your Love Away"), difficulties of finding romantic partners later in life ("Slow and Steady"), and the ever-present specter of old age ("Golden Years").

Features Joshua Mayes (The King's Express) on bass, John Caruso (Tennessee Backporch) on drums, and Adam McKillip (The Probables) on mandolin.

The Boy Who Always Got Picked Last

Frank Marzano

In cart Not available Out of stock

Beatlesque power pop with quirky chord changes and clever lyrics. Mainly classic rock, but also incorporating elements of other styles (i.e. folk, grunge, hip-hop).

With his third CD, Frank progresses beyond Merseybeat and incorporates elements from other genres (folk, grunge, hip-hop). The focus has been sharpened (the disc clocks in at a lean 50:06), yet classic Marzano trademarks still remain (memorable melodies, hook-laden riffs, and clever lyrics). If you prefer three-chord country-folk songs, THE BOY WHO ALWAYS GOT PICKED LAST probably won't win you over, but if you like well-produced pop music with an emphasis on songwriting, this is an indispensable addition to your CD collection.
