Frank Turner is a British singer/songwriter that was born in December 1981 in Bahrain.
He was the vocalist for the London-based hardcore punk rock band Million Dead before they disbanded in 2005.
Strangely enough, his solo stuff is nothing near his previous endeavor. His newer stuff is closer to a mix between folk and indie and from what I little I have heard of his solo stuff is reminiscent (in my opinion) of a British Violent Femmes.
