Carlier's music is the kind that plants its heels into the earth and digs,The kind that takes a troubled story and twines it around a handful of eager carefully honed instruments like a flowering vine twisted among barbed voice is sandy and his picking is hypnotic, and the music it all makes together is something rooted in the dirt and in the https://www.tradebit.comic carefully put together and deeply https://www.tradebit.comic with stories and a craft behind it.

Darryl Few-Birch Radio Rochdale

There are times when a band hits their stride and delivers a set that is beyond anything that you expect and believe me those sets are extremely rare. But the Frank Carlier Band did it over and over again.

Carlier is a down to earth enormously talented musician. The four part harmony of his masterful band created a concert that will be remembered as one of the best at the Midtown Theater.

Sandy Katz Post& Courier

Frank Carlier is a walking enigma. Those who know him casually view him as a rough edged perverse biker type. Those who know him well know that he has a sensitive side that rarely shows up in everyday conversation. "Born Again" is an example of the enigma. The cover art features a Bible, a gun and a drink which would make someone shopping the local music bin at their favorite music store wonder just what Frank is up to.

In a recent interview he described this project as his therapy. Everyone knows that he is one of the finest guitar players in the area and that he released one of the best local CDs several years ago with "Night Breed" which highlighted his musicianship as he traded licks with mandolin whiz George Pearce.

On "Born Again" Frank exhibits another of his musical strengths, songwriting. This CD runs a gamut of emotions from the sadness of personal loss in songs like "The Golden Boy" and "Sacred Vow," to the signature humor of "Love Is Gone" and "Judgement Day." I couldn't mention the latter without mentioning the line, "Even in a lion's den I won't be standin' holding my breath, cayuse I already slept with the angel of death...My Judgement Day is through baby, God already damned me when he gave me you." And that's the tip of the iceberg.

Although this CD is a collection of very personal stories, it is augmented by excellent instrumentation with the help of drummer Steve Kent, cellsit Matt Walker and vocals by Carol O'Quinn. Also lending a hand, among many others, are Jay Miley . O'Quinn and Carlier team up on what could possibly be one of the most marketable songs on the CD, "Wasted Time," on which her voice closely resembles that of Emmylou Harris and lends soft reponse to Carlier's whiskey vocal.

The title track continues the enigma with a somber song laced with clever, and hilarious lyrics. "Sacred Vow" is one tune which will definitely bring a tear to the eyes of the most hardened individual. It's the story of the death of an old friend and the mix of emotions when old friends get together at a funeral. Don't be scared away because it happens to be a sad song; it's best described as a song which each of us can relate to.

Rcorded at Jay Miley's Charleston Recording Studio with some work done by Steve Green and Keith Bradshaw, "Born Again" proves once again what a special talent Frank Carlier is. Any collection of songs that makes you laugh and cry at the same time are well worth the price of the CD. Editor Charleston Free Times


I didn't know what to expect with the Frank Carlier Band, billed as "celtic, folk, gypsy and jazz." My car broke down on the way to the show, but it was perfect --they started a half hour late. "Sorry guys. We jsut never got out of the '60's," joked Carlier to the packed, young crowd.

The night started out with an acoustic guitar/cello duet of nicely varying rhythms, wonderfully flowing arpeggios and creative use of rests. Matt Walker could turn that cello into a rocking bass guitar, stand-up jazzy bass, bluegrass fiddle or classical cello at will. The next tune was an irish jig and yes, they got jiggy with it. This song broke unexpectedly and delightfully into some heavy metal sounding noise, then leaped to some serious fast fiddling and picking. It was a great display of the band's eclecticism.

Screamin' Jay says in "Constipation Blues" that "most people write songs about love, heartbreak, loneliness and being broke." From Carlier's songs about a sexy bartender, an old girlfriend in a photograph and divorce (where he jokes, "It's great being a musician getting a divorce--they don't get much!") Carlier's lyrics are no exception to Jay's rule. For all the genres of music played, the night was rooted in bluesy barfly sensibility. Best to get yerself a tall one.

Besides playing an excellent gee-tar, Frank could howl with the best of 'em. His 12-bar blues song that placed his girlfriend in the book of Genesis was almost as scraggly as Tom Waits. -S.E. Barcus Performance Review
