Frankie Bourne

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
rootsy-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, and his song “21st Century” won 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, Bonnie Raitt), 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.
“Troubadour Frankie Bourne is one to watch as a burgeoning solo act. So tune in and
behold…He’s part Johnny Cash, part Eagles, part Steve Earle, part…Frankie Bourne”
– Christopher Millard, San Jose Rock Music Examiner
“Frankie is California through and through. But then there’s so much more…It’s real
music, plated by a real singer/songwriter with real instruments for real people”
– Michael Rauch, View From The Cheap Seats
“Bourne definitely has a way with a hook, and his infectious songs are both easy to
absorb and easy to like…He’s going for earthiness rather than slickness to display that
organic type of sound”
– Alex Henderson, Music Journalist SPIN, Billboard, LA Weekly
