• West Coast Music

    As the name indicates West Coast Music has its origin on the American West Coast. The music emphasizes melody, harmonies and arrangements, and the vocal and instrumental performances are always with great skill and of high quality. The music is often performed by pop/rock artists from the American West Coast, but is in no way limited to any geografical area.

Smooth west coast singer…

An enormously popular performer in the late ’70s and early ’80s, though his jazz credentials are in dispute.

Franks performed folk/rock songs while in high school, then became a literature student at UCLA and a part-time performer. He taught undergraduate music courses in the early ’70s at both UCLA and Berkeley, then provided scores for the films Count Your Bullets and Zandy’s Bride.

He made his first album in 1973, then enjoyed success with a string of late ’70s albums on Warner Brothers. He has worked with the likes of Flora Purim, Kenny Rankin, Ron Carter, the Crusaders, David Sanborn, Toots Thielemans, Eric Gale, and others, and has had songs recorded by The Manhattan Transfer, Patti Labelle, Carmen McRae, and the Carpenters. – Ron Wynn All Music Guide, photo from the official Michael Franks website.
