Frank Tribes is a songwriter/performer based in Chicago. For several years prior to going solo in 2001, he was a member of the well established and eclectic Garden Bower, a band that regularly performed in Chicago and steadily released their music. In 2002 he released his debut self-titled album, followed by his well- received 2nd album, âBy All Means,â released in 2004. (both available at CDbaby.com)
âGalleryâ is his newest recording. The creation of this album began when Frank started demoing new songs heâd been working on. Knowing another album was in the works, some friends and other musicians suggested that he work with Ellis Clark (Epicycle, Kevin Tihista, Le Concorde.) Sharing very similar influences, along with a love for songwriting, the two hit it off immediately and began working steadily on an album.
Along with engineering, Ellis would add backup vocals, piano, keyboards and his production skills. Frank in turn pushed both his vocals and guitar playing to new heights. Each song, arrangement and production in general benefited. The first five completed songs became a promo release called, âBlade E.P.â Steady work over the next year brought forth the completion of the full-length album, âGallery.â
The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Syd Barrett, Echo & the Bunnymen, the Kinks and early BeeGees. Elements of such artists are borrowed, yet the songs make their own statement. Well crafted music, strong melodies and insightful lyrics come together in a unique way. Many lovers of rock music will want to have this album among their collection.
REVIEWS FOR THE BLADE E.P. (5 tracks of this GALLERY album)
Major Chicago FM Radio Station
93.1 WXRT's Local Anesthetic
"[The new Blade EP] struck me as easily the best work that Frank has done on his own, through and through. Five songs, and from the opening notes I just thought, man here you go, you're sounding really good on this stuff." - R. Milne
CHICAGO MUSIC GUIDE
Review for "Blade EP" by Jason Steinmeier
"Frank Tribes has a nice voice. He has a solid sense of timing and of classic melody and arrangement. This EP starts strong, getting nearly right into the first catchy chorus of the recording. It's well executed. Strong playing, and an expanding arrangement that includes acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, keys, and strings, all jamming through a classic rock style guitar solo bridge/outchorus. Good sense of direction... Its well done overall. As an exercise in songwriting, "On My Way" is quite good..."â
ILLINOIS ENTERTAINER (July 2006)
"Around Hear" Review for "Blade EP" by Penelope Biver
"His strongest songs are the opening track, "On My Way," with folk rock jangle a la early R.E.M. or The Byrds, and "Hands," which has warm layers of vocal harmonies over cool, '70s-radio rock minor chords...Tribes is on to something with this EP, and perhaps he'll gain momentum from here.â
Review for "Blade EP" by Jeremy Searle
"Chicagoan Frank Tribes latest offering [Blade EP] is a step up from his last albumâ¦five songs of intense melodic indie-popâ¦His take on Spectorâs Wall of Sound is excellentâ
