Fiery Scottish vocalist Frankie Miller is one of the legends of the British music scene, with a powerful voice that has drawn numerous comparisons. His distinctive voice and song writing ability have earned him the respect of his peers and that is reflected in the number of world-renowned artists, including Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Etta James, Cher, The Everly Brothers and Ray Charles, who have covered his songs.

Frankie enjoyed a full career that took him round the globe and saw him sing and write for the very best in the music biz and score hits in the States with songs like “Ain’t Got No Money” and co write the rock ballad anthem “Still In Love with You” for Thin Lizzy.

Sadly due to ill health Frankie can no longer tour, but his former band are generating funds for him with a series of one off shows.
Back in 1976 Frankie had returned to the UK after recording on Alkatraz Island in San Francisco to put together his new “Full House”. The result was a year of hard graft on the road beginning with a 50 date UK tour, kicking off in May 1976 and finishing with a triumphant show at London’s Victoria Palace on 27th June. Frankie had featured Ray Imminent on lead guitar and recordings for the ” Full House” album began in November 1976 and combined Miller originals with choice covers including John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy” which Frankie sings with great feeling and a first ever UK chart single - Andy Fraser’s “Be Good to Yourself”.
