"Frank Viele sings with such urgency that it is as if his very soul hangs in the balance of every note. His ravaged, blue collar vocals convey a poignant desperation. But he's not a victim, he's a victor, an advocate for surviving, a champion to all who have sacrificed and struggled just to get by." (AXS.com)

Making "New Music With An Old Soul", Frank Viele may very well be the "everyman" of Singer/Songwriters.

A bourbon drinking, cartoon watching, blue-collar entrepreneur; his musical roots started on his grandmother's piano as a young child, developed as a teen tailgating with an acoustic guitar in the parking lots of Dave Matthews Band concerts, and blossomed on the road as a young adult performing as the quintessential "weekend warrior" in the East Coast Jam and Singer/Songwriter scenes.

Now with the 2015 release of his first full-length album, Fall Your Way, Viele has found himself singing his heart out on stages and radio stations across the country supporting a range of acts as eclectic as his song catalog.

At home on stage with nothing but a stool, glass of bourbon, and an acoustic guitar, or side by side with his power house band, Viele has found himself on stage with modern singer/songwriters such as Pat McGee, Ryan Montbleau, Gavin Degraw, and Tony Lucca, Jam and Rock oriented bands including Blues Traveler, Eric Lindell, Turkuaz, The London Souls, and Zach Myers of Shinedown, as well classic rock legends including The Marshal Tucker Band, Foreigner, Ambrosia, Bret Michaels, and Bob Marley's Wailers.

As a songwriter, on Fall Your Way, "Viele's true strength lies in letting you into his world with vivid storytelling. The tracks alternate seamlessly between jazzy versus more "nitty-gritty" blues while all staying relatable, through a constant theme of "romance gone wrong." (No Depression)

This stylistically eclectic use of instrumentation combined with his perspective as a story teller rooted in traditional folk and blues music finds him not only supporting amazing acts in the live arena, but also performing alongside some of the most talented musicians playing today — In fact, Fall Your Way finds artists the likes of blues guitar great Joe Bonamassa, jam guitar ace Tim Palmieri of Kung Fu, and saxophonist Bill Holloman of Chic, Elton John, and The E Street Band adding their talents to Viele' s music.

Consistently referring to his artistic endeavors as a true "journey" Viele's experience and dedication to the art of the live show and touring finds him on the road regularly performing over 150 shows a year earning him the title of The New England Music Award's 2014 "Live Act Of The Year".

But since the release of Fall Your Way on April 7th 2015, Viele has been gaining the support of critics too.

With 5-Star reviews of Fall Your Way, drawing comparisons to artists ranging from Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, and Bill Withers to Jason Aldean, Bob Seger, and Ray Lamontagne, it's still the 2014 New England Music Awards' "Live Act of The Year", Frank Viele's live show that has been winning audiences over one stage at a time.

In an ever-changing, genre defying, musical climate, Viele has found a home on stages and in stereos across the country as an independent artist. Whether pulling at heart strings with an acoustic love song or bringing a crowd to their feet with his unique blend of soul, funk, and rock, the music of Frank Viele is simply a sound all his own...
