About Michael Franks

Jazz musician Michael Franks grew up listening to his parents' music, which had a profound influence on his future career. With musicians like Nat King Cole, Irving Berlin, Peggy Lee, and Jonny Mercer played around his house, it seemed only natural that Michael Franks would later pursue jazz as a professional career. When he was 14 years old, he went ahead and bought his first guitar that included six private lessons. Astonishingly, this was the extent of his music education. While attending high school, Michael Franks began singing folk rock and playing guitar, and he was later influenced in college by the music of Patti Page, Stan Getz, Miles Davis, and Joao Gilberto. After graduating from college, he obtained a master's degree, and then started teaching part time at UCLA. During this time, he started writing songs, including songs for the films Zandy's Bride, Count Your Bullets, and Cockfighter.

Michael Franks went on to release his debut album, which included the hit "Can't Seem to Shake This Rock 'n Roll." A few years later, he released his second album "The Art of Tea" in 1976, which was more successful than his debut, and included songs like "Nightmoves," "St. Elmo's Fire," and "Jive." This album also featured artists like Larry Carlton and Wilton Felder from The Crusaders. Franks released his third album in 1977, "Sleeping Gypsy," which features the song "The Lady Wants to Know."

Michael Franks' Breakthrough Album

Michael Franks got his start when he started composing music for films, but he got his big break with his second album, "The Art of Tea." The success of his second album set the stage for the album releases that followed, and he finally got scored a hit with his 1983 single "When Sly Calls (Don't Touch That Phone)" which was from his album, "Passionfruit." Other hits that enjoyed airplay on the radio include "Island Life" from the album "The Camera Never Lies," and also "Your Secret's Safe With Me" from "Skin Dive." Throughout the years that followed, Michael Franks continued to tour and collaborate with other artists. Now he is kicking off another tour, and you will definitely want to check him out when he visits a venue near your city.
