Frankie Bourne


On his debut album “Californicana”, native Californian singer-songwriter Frankie Bourne tells lyrical tales of wanderlust adventure along the California coast with infectious roots-rock songs that blend a unique range of influence. Equipped with an authentic indie sound that, "combines the style of new Americana with all the things you loved about 90s adult alternative bands" (, and "a smoky, quick-tongued lyrical quality that can change speeds like a Zack Greinke change-up" (San Jose Rock Music Examiner), Bourne`s first solo effort has been incredibly well-received by Indie, Rock and Americana radio stations nationwide, winning an award for best love song on the Jango Radio 2015 Valentine`s Day Playlist, who call it, "a refreshing roots rock record for the 21st Century". Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Frankie became infatuated with music at a young age, teaching himself the drums, harmonica and guitar, playing in bands and beginning to write songs at age 13. After high school he made his way down the California coast through Santa Cruz, writing songs, jamming in garages and performing at every open mic he could find before eventually moving to Los Angeles where he wrote and arranged his 13-track, acoustic-laced debut studio album, “Californicana”. The album was co-produced by Bourne and LA producer Marc Danzeisen (Riverdogs, Powerslide, Gilby Clarke), and features saxophonist Jeremy Trezona (Saint Motel), as well as guitarists Johnny Hawthorn (Johnny Hawthorn Band) and Manny Alvarez (Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams), among others. The album just released independently under Bourne’s own Robotic Records with a successful sold out record release show at the infamous House of Blues on the Sunset Strip, and a 15-date California Tour. Frankie continues to aggressively play shows throughout the West Coast in support of the album, both solo and with his band, with a follow up record in the works and an eagerness to keep pushing his music to bigger stages. His album “Californicana” is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CD Baby and BandCamp, and is now featured on radio stations Sonoma Sun FM, Jango Radio, Indie Radio Music, Relax Free Radio, The Mad Music Asylum, War Stories Radio, and UK based XRP Radio.
