Hans Frank "El Gallo" / Bio

“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)

“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)”

“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)”
