Over the course of an astonishing career spanning 20 years + – during which he has to date sold in excess 1 million records and played to over 2 million people – Frank Turner’s popular-ity has grown with his artistry. From the ferocious, sweaty box venues of rock band Million Dead and starting from scratch with an acoustic guitar in pubs and bedrooms in 2005, to his name now routinely appearing in the largest font on ticket stubs that permit entry to such venues as Wembley Arena, The O2 or the Royal Albert Hall. Frank was personally asked by Danny Boyle to perform at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony; ASCAP awarded him their Vanguard Award for emerging talent in 2012; he played his tenth consecutive slot at Reading and Leeds festival in 2016, an unprecedented achievement; he released his Amazon number 1 bestseller The Road Beneath My Feet in paperback in February 2016 (also a Times #1 best-seller in hardback), followed by his Top 5 best-selling memoir, Try This At Home – Adventures In Songwriting. ‘Tape Deck Heart’, ‘England Keep My Bones’ and ‘Love Ire & Song’ are all certified Gold for sales in the UK (with ‘Positive Songs For Negative People’ on the brink of going Silver), and in 2017 Turner released a documentary feature film, Get Better, charting a turbulent year in the singer’s life.
He has carved out a career as a hard-touring, punk-folk troubadour with a diehard fanbase drawn to a singer-songwriter who refuses to play the game and does things on his own terms.
