“I don’t do ‘covers,’ I reinterpret songs. If I can’t put my own spin on something, I won’t do it…”

Without question, popular performer Frank Shiner (winner of two L.A. Music Critic Awards) has demonstrated his finely-honed ability to put his own unique stamp on classic material previously recorded by others via his sophomore album, LONELY TOWN, LONELY STREET. Turning in stellar performances on songs popularized by such artists as The Rascals, Brook Benton, Sam & Dave, Elton John, Bill Withers and Donny Hathaway, Frank has created a tour-de-force collection of twelve songs from the songbooks of legendary writers such as Randy Newman, Doc Pomus, Isaac Hayes & David Porter and Tony Joe White among others.

“I decided to do ‘blue-eyed soul’ for my second album,” explains the New York resident, using a term that was first coined by renowned black radio personality Georgie Woods in the mid-‘60s when referencing The Righteous Brothers. “I’ve always been intrigued by and loved the genre which has really morphed into including artists like my heroes Hall & Oates, Amy Winehouse and others.”

Indeed, with LONELY TOWN, LONELY STREET, Frank can most assuredly add his name to the list of bona fide ‘blue-eyed soul’ purveyors thanks to his passionate reading of such songs as “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know” (written by Al Kooper of Blood, Sweat & Tears, who first recorded it and best known for a 1973 recording by late Donny Hathaway) and “Love Is A Losing Game” from the catalog of Amy Winehouse. Notes Frank, “There is a little Donny Hathaway influence in my singing of that song. I think we brought even more passion to it. I’m a trained Shakespearian actor so I need to have a special focus on the lyrics in my songs. With the song by Amy, well, it’s heart wrenching. I can’t imagine what kind of pain she was going through when she wrote it. It has that feeling of someone who’s ‘lost’ and I well-up nearly every time I sing the song…”

THE MAN CAN SING!

Shiner’s style encompasses blues, a touch of jazz and healthy dollops of R&B. He takes all three influences, mashes them up in a musical mixing bowl and then frappes it. The resulting sound is of Jovian potency. And I should add that the sound orbits Shiner’s voice, a superlative tenor asserting its vitality. Yet at the same time, there exists a charming air of simplicity to his vocals. He’s not straining, thereby diluting the intensity of the music. It’s a rich voice, under exquisite lilting control. The Man Can Sing!

PURE ARTISTRY

Frank Shiner comes out of this song as a performer determined to claim everything he sings as his own and appeal to his potential audience in a wide and broad-based way. It isn’t hard to pull that off when you have pipes like this and artistry to match. Shiner’s voice, despite this being a studio recording, clearly needs no post production trickery to reach its goals. His confident and rich baritone deceptively masks a wide range that allows him to explore moments of great sensitivity and shows a muscular edge at other key points. “Please Come Home for Christmas” is a resounding success.

A YULETIDE CLASSIC

The true beauty of Frank Shiner’s “Please Come Home for Christmas” comes from his utter fearlessness in claiming the song as his own. Many, fine vocalists have taken turns with this Yuletide classic, but no one in this writer’s memory has ever dispatched this song with the fervent, yet understated, passion that Shiner summons here. This is far more soulful than any rendition of the song you’ve likely heard.

A UNIQUE AND POWERFUL CHRISTMAS CLASSIC

Frank Shiner’s release of the single, “Please Come Home for Christmas”, takes this Christmas standard in a powerful new direction. This is full of the blood and heart of human experience and never takes any pandering short cuts to appeal to its audience. Instead, Frank Shiner emerges from this performance of “Please Come Home for Christmas” as a wonderfully well-rounded performer who understands how to marry his vocals to the musical arrangement for maximum effect and gives us as individualistic of a rendition of this Xmas classics as we are ever likely to hear.
