About Michael Franks

Michael Franks's distinctive, smooth croon and breezy songwriting style combine old-school Cole Porter wit with the jazz fusion and light bossa nova sound emblematic of the 1970s and '80s. In addition to being a consistently popular recording artist since his debut album was released in 1973, Franks has written songs for artists such as the Manhattan Transfer. His laid-back style also lends itself well to film soundtracks, to which he has contributed richly. ~ Rovi Staff
