Bob Franke

“It’s his integrity. I always think of Bob as if Emerson and Thoreau had picked up acoustic guitars and gotten into songwriting. There’s touches of Mark Twain and Buddy Holly in there, too.” -Tom Paxton

“While fans from Claudia Schmidt to June Tabor may have…incredible taste in picking songs…when they sing Massachusetts-based Bob Franke’s tunes, neither they nor anyone else can come close to the emotional (and spiritual) depth Franke brings to his understated songs of the heart, from ‘Hard Love’ to ‘The Great Storm Is Over’. He continues also to dig into Robert Johnson’s blues, and songs that offer hilarious uses of everything from bicycle repair to computers as metaphors for sex. In the folk singer-songwriter realm, Franke is simply the best.” -Larry Kelp, Express, Berkeley, California
