Hans Frank "El Gallo" / Press

“Appalachia-raised/San Antonio-based Hans Frank knows his way around all kinds of music. . .Frank also is unafraid of working solo as Hans Frank “El Gallo,” pulling from a repertoire of old-time songs and originals that sound like they could have been written decades ago.”

“. . .Hans Frank’s latest project, “El Gallo” (the rooster), is a completely different offering: stripped-down, rootsy originals . . . (complete with a deep, nasal voice coming from the center of the earth).”

““Frank boasts real deal hillbilly credentials thanks to his birth and formative years in Meigs County, Ohio in the Appalachian hills where the Buckeye State merges with Kentucky and West Virginia. So it’s no wonder that his musical creativity reflects a similar rebel spirit to such locally bred country talents as Johnny Paycheck, David Allan Coe and Bobby Bare as well as a keen-eyed wit not unlike that of acclaimed American literary satirist Ambrose Bierce, who also hailed from Meigs County.” – Rob Patterson ”

GLAMBILLY bio for Saustex

““Always a prolific songwriter, the combination of rough and refined contributes to the dissonance in Hans’ music. His lyrics experiment on the continuum of kitschy, desperation, and painful introspection while his songwriting is bittersweet and full of nuance.” – Steve Circeo (Americana Music Times) ”

Americana Music TImes

““Frank is a fine songwriter, he takes his honky tonk and his rock and roll seriously and melds them close to perfectly. . .” Thom Jurek (All Music Guide)”
