Biography

Like any gifted musician, Frank Bennett's appetite for music probably developed in the cradle but there was weaned on a diet of sixties and seventies radio. Yet while The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Beach Boys, The Fifth Dimension, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, and a thousand other great acts dominated the airwaves and incited change, the carefree and elegantly sentimental sounds of yesteryear were always lingering like the steamy waft of Old Spice a freshly vacated shower. As with the best of any art form, good music carries its legacies through the years and sometimes perpetuates itself in bizarre and beautiful manifestations.

Adopting the stage name Tony Sinatra, Frank began establishing a fan base of pensioners and shopping mall goers. Simultaneously the 'Lounge' movement was growing as a viable alternative pursuit for disenchanted young sophisticates and before long Tony Sinatra found himself the corporeal embodiment and vanguard of an exciting twist on retro revivalism. He rapidly became the darling of the inner city cocktail set and was inevitably approached with a recording contract. "Who the hell would give anyone called Sinatra a record contract?" mused Frank.
