Frank Velardo is a very unique blues guitarist and songwriter. Since he started playing at age 12, he has been writing songs, improvising and performing. Now, he has developed a very authentic and personal voice that stands humbly alongside those that have come before him. He plays original tunes that not only showcase his ability as a guitarist and vocalist, but also as a composer and songwriter. How he chooses to use the different elements he has at his disposal is truly innovative. Nobody is playing the blues quite like this. It is very exciting to hear something this fresh.
