Frank Weyzig is a Dutch producer, composer, and band member known for his contribution to the original Clan of Xymox and his work for indie new wave band Born For Bliss. More recently, Weyzig is involved with Vaselyne, White Rose Transmission, and Stargazing Project. In January 2011, Weyzig founded Turmoil Music, a new music platform for Independent Artists.
Weyzig started his music career in 1985 with Dutch electronic wave legend Clan of Xymox when they were signed with the English indie label 4AD, which released their eponymous debut album that same year. The track 7th Time was picked up by John Peel, and led to the band recording two of the Peel Sessions at the BBC, in June and November 1985. Weyzig played guitar and keyboards on the famous debut album, and performed with the band on stage as live guitarist and keyboard player until 1990.
In 1995, Weyzig (vocals, guitar, editing/production) formed Dutch indie-wave band Born For Bliss along with Remco Helbers (bass, Chapman Stick) and Willem Van Antwerpen (drums). In 1996 Born For Bliss released the debut single, 'Arabia' on Nuclear Blast - Death Wish Office, a German label. The 'Arabia' single became a club hit and made its way high into the German Alternative charts. In 1997, the band released its first full length album 'Flowing with the Flu,' which also made the German Alternative charts.
In 1998, German Goth rock group Love Like Blood asked Weyzig to write a song for their ‘Snake Killer' album. This resulted in the track ‘Ylene,' which became one of their favorites during Love Like Blood’s live performances later that year.
From 1999 - 2008, Weyzig took a break from releasing albums, but returned in 2009 to join long time friend Rob Keyzer in the band White Rose Transmission - founded by Carlo van Putten (singer of Dead Guitars) and Adrian Borland (front man of English 80's cult band The Sound). As co-writer, band member, and producer, Weyzig and the band released 'Spiders in the Mind Web' (Echozone, 2010) and the live album 'Spinning Webs at Night' (Echozone, 2011).
In 2011, Weyzig founded Turmoil Music, a free Music Platform for Independent Artists. That same year, German label Echozone released the second Born For Bliss album ‘Between Living and Dreaming’. Also in 2011, Weyzig and Remco Helbers formed Stargazing Project. That same year, Echozone released a digital version of their album ‘Stargazing' - a collection of songs inspired by mysteries such as conspiracies, alien abductions, UFO encounters, and other strange events.
Weyzig's latest project is Vaselyne - a collaboration with Dutch singer Yvette Winkler, known for her contribution to Pieter Nooten's latest album, ‘Here is Why’ (2010). Vaselyne's first EP ‘Earthbound’ was released in the spring of 2012, with the full album due for release in the Spring of 2013.
In 2012, Echozone re-released the first Born For Bliss album, ‘Flowing with the Flu,' a re-mastered version of the 1997 album plus extra, never before released remixes.
In 2013, Echozone released the new Born For Bliss EP ‘Innocent’. The first new recordings from the band since 1998. Also in 2013 and on the same label, the debut album for Vaselyne, ‘The Fire Within’ was released.
