Frank Lenz needs no introduction, especially if you've been listening to independent music for a good amount of time. His amazing drumming, arranging, and producing talents have been lent to musical efforts such as Starflyer 59, The Lassie Foundation, Charity Empressa, Cush, Richard Swift, Kat Jones, The Dingees, Pony Express, Fold Zandura, as well as many more.
Lenz's music has been played on TV, and he has crisscrossed the continent touring in support of the many projects he’s been involved with. It comes as a shock that a musician held in such high regard by so many other bands actually has the time and creativity to come up with his own music, but Lenz has found a way to do just that. Lenz has impressed with his sporadic solo efforts, such as his neo-soul The Hot Stuff released on Northern Records, and his self-released stoner-folk full-length The Last Temptation of Frank Lenz. However, with his latest release for California label Velvet Blue Music, psych-folk-pop full-length Conquest Slaughter, Frank Lenz truly comes into his own. The CD finds Lenz writing his most memorable songs and infusing them with the near-rampant experimentalism that marked his previous solo releases.
