Frank Turner Talks About His Musical Journey In New Documentary

English folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner has had no time to recover from the popularity of his new single  “Recovery.” But, his latest confessional video isn’t a new music video; rather it’s a documentary masterminded by his good friend and Road to Wembley directer Greg Nolan. Watch the video here.

In the 16-ish minute documentary, Turner eloquently talks about his musical journey. It starts from when he was a young lad sneaking out to purchase music magazines (instead of porn like his peers) to the infamous Nanbucca club, a pivotal part of the West London folk music scene, and his hardcore/punk roots were revolutionized.

Turner talks bout the “appeal of punk rock and the kind of defiance and the rage and the rejection of society” that appealed to him. As he got older, he became very loyal to his British roots, saying that it’s time for Anglocana to become the new Americana.

Primarily, Turner’s message in the documentary is to simply make some “noise” and disregard obstacles. He did that when he proved acoustic guitar music didn’t have to be sappy.

“You can create the type of person you want to be,” says the singer-songwriter. “You’re not condemned by your background or your start or whatever.”
