Often described as a social commentator, the Bahrain born, Meonstoke raised songwriter released his first album ‘Sleep Is for the Week’ in 2007 which was received well critically. ‘Love Ire & Song’ came in the following year and made Turner’s first dent in the UK album charts, his reputation was growing quickly as his tours began to sell out by his loyal fan base. He supported The Offspring and The Gaslight Anthem on tours which developed his reputation further.

The next album ‘Poetry of the Deed’ debuted within the UK top 40 thanks to support from the likes of Kerrang and Q Magazine. This album gained him a nomination for an NME Award in the Best Solo Artist category. He became a regular on the festival circuit, playing Two Thousand Trees, Reading & Leeds and Cambridge Folk to support the release of 2011 album ‘England Keep My Bones’. He won two AIM awards in the same year for Best Live Act and Hardest Working Artist.
In 2012 Frank and his support band The Sleeping Souls were personally invited as the warm up act to the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony where they played ‘Sailor’s Boots’ ‘Wessex Boy’ and ‘I Still Believe’. His biggest commercial album to date was released in 2013 and was titled ‘Tape Deck Heart’, it debuted in the UK at #2 and holds a MetaCritic score of 78/100. It also featured a hit single of sorts in ‘The Way I Tend To Be’ which became Turner’s second ever appearance on the UK singles chart.
Frank Turner’s album, Positive Songs For Negative People, is the singer-songwriter’s sixth album and the follow-up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed Tape Deck Heart. It was made with his trusted backing band, The Sleeping Souls, and produced by Butch Walker in Nashville. “I feel like this record is my definitive statement, a summation of the first five records,” says Turner. The first taste of the album is the single, The Next Storm, which is available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the album on iTunes. The video for The Next Storm features Turner in the boxing ring with CM Punk, the longest-reigning WWE Champion of the modern era.
It has been an eventful decade for the troubadour from Winchester who now resides in Holloway, North London. Turner released his debut album, Sleep is For The Week, in 2007 and has been on a stunning upward curve ever since. He is now one of the country’s most cherished songwriters, a man who plays the biggest venues in the land and whose records reach the higher echelons of the charts but who has never lost sight of his original MO: write, record, tour, repeat.
Like much of Turner’s work, it is a record that takes Life’s Big Issues – triumphing over the darkest adversities – and places them inside a mix of beguiling, intricate vignettes and sweeping anthems. Josephine is a punky sing along and Mittens is a fist-clenched song of defiance whilst tracks such as Glorious You and Demons pack a bittersweet emotional punch. That it begins with The Angel Islington, a tribute to North London, and ends with Song For Josh, a touching eulogy recorded live at the 9.30 Club in Washington, is an apt reflection of the journey Frank Turner has made over the past 10 years. He has made homes from home, and formed strong bonds along the way. Positive Songs For Negative People is Turner at both his most reflective and celebratory.
