frank thewes Bio:

Frank Thewes Starts With A Step Frank Thewes’ first full-length solo CD, “Starts With A Stept was released in June of 2004. A labor of love and recorded live in New Hope, Pennsylvania above the New Hope Candle Shop, the11 song “Starts With A Stept is Frank’s first official output. As a balanced and creative work, “Starts With A Stept stands out because of its original flavor. Dylan-esque overtones, a few tunings borrowed from the Nick Drake cannon, mild similarities to Eddie Vedder, Leonard Cohen and Elvis Costello, and a subtle pop sensibility color this record. Subtle pop sensibilities aside, “Starts With A Stept is more of a singer/songwriter record. Mature and interesting evocations of experience and life, told through the various narratives of would-be love songs. “People have heard a few tracks and have said ‘she must have been some girl’. Well, she is. But these songs are about me, as with any writer’s songs. You are the filter, it came through you, and has to be of you. Emotional change of any kind can be a catalyst all kinds of songs. Besides, it’s always good to look under the lyrics for a better view.t We get a better view of Frank Thewes with “Starts With A Stept.
