National Endowment for the Arts Award Winner and Stylish Jazz Vocalist
....“With a voice at times similar to Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and bluesman Johnny Adams, Senior, blind from birth, swings naturally and tells a lyric story without forcing it. He is certain that his blindness has only enhanced his musical (and all other) senses, and has made him into a soulful story teller and accomplished vocalist.”
Senior’s blindness makes him stand-out in the crowd, creating a unique distinction among scores of nameless artists. Mostly all blind musicians in New York have the protective armor of an instrument between them and the audience. However, Frank communicates directly with the crowd. Everyone knows him, and just about everyone loves him.
