Frankie Boots is an award winning singer/songwriter with a penchant for painting vivid images of late nights, lost love, and the grittier side of life. Whether it be country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, or any other true form of great American music, Boots throws it all into the recipe for a dish that’s always served hot. After honing his skills and earning a devoted fan base up and down the West Coast, in 2016 the California native packed it all up and headed down to New Orleans for fresh inspiration and Southern horizons. His captivating live performances and magnetic songs earned him the North Bay Bohemian’s award for best Country/Americana act in the Bay Area two years in a row and his full ensemble was written in as the best overall band for 2016 by their readership. Frankie continues to tour nationally both solo and with a band.
“John Courage has been honing his skills as a songwriter, guitarist and producer for over 10 years in the music communities of Northern California, with stints in the Pacific Northwest and the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico. With a flair for vintage inspired rock and roll that takes cue from the Texas singer songwriter scene of the 70’s, John Courage creates a sound that at once feels familiar yet urgent.
New styles blossom and are assimilated into the songbook, and currently John Courage performs as a solo songwriter, or a raucous, guitar driven trio or quartet.
With four self produced full length albums to his credit, and guitar credits on many other records, along with touring work on bass and lead guitar, John Courage now expands into the role of producer with the addition of Gremlintone Studios, a fledgling analog based production focusing on live recording.”
