Regarded by many as one of Australia’s most important Indigenous Songwriters, Yamma’s brutally honest tales of alcohol abuse, cultural degradation, respect for the old law and the importance of country are spine tingling. Frank has the ability to cross cultural and musical boundaries and constantly sets new standards through his music.
Frank’s latest CD Countryman is the first release for the new Wantok Musik Label. Recorded at an isolated run down country house in Taralga near Goulburn, Countryman is an album full of great songs of longing, of romance, of immense beauty. Songs of imprisonment, of the desert's great beauty, of the contradictions between Frank's life as a respected initiated man and a disrespected outsider in the cities where jail, poverty and discrimination are a part of everyday life.
