Frank Hoier Announces Tour w/The Weber Brothers
NPR's Song of The Day: "I've Made Up My Mind"
Frank Hoier is poised at the front of a new wave of modern Americana roots music. His song "I've Made Up My Mind" was just made NPR's Song of The Day on October 15th. Then, backed by rock'n'roll prodigy siblings, The Weber Brothers, Frank's self released album Lovers & Dollars will see it's national debut on November 11th. Now, Frank is taking his songs on the road this winter with The Weber Brothers, beginning December 7th at Union Pool with the internet-famous Creaky Boards.

Just three years ago, Frank Hoier packed up his life in SoCal and moved towards SoHo. After just three months on the New York music scene, Frank made the cover of the city's Urban Folk Magazine. In New York, he's a regular fixture at The Sidewalk Café and Roots n'Ruckus, but can also be found performing at The Cake Shop, Piano's, and Pete's Candy Store. Frank Hoier has shared the stage with such notable acts as Jaymay, The Bowmans, Sam Shepard, The Powder Kegs, and Calvin Johnson. Well practiced in the ragtime and slide guitar blues of Blind Willie McTell, the vocal enthusiasm of Little Richard, and Bob Dylan's skillful lyrics, Frank Hoier is poised to take the position of Anti-Folk royalty. His Guthrie-esque anthem "Jesus Don't Give Tax Breaks To The Rich" has been hailed as "the most perfect protest song written yet this millennium" (PopHeadWound). The song made the Top 50 on Neil Young's anti-war website, Living with War Today.
