TESLA Guitarist FRANK HANNON Releases "Octopus" Single And Music Video
November 22, 2022, 4 days ago
Tesla guitarist, Frank Hannon, has released his new single, "Octopus". Watch a video for the track below.
Says Hannon: '“I have a very eclectic taste for different styles of music and I started learning to play the organ at 5 years old with my grandmother, then drums at 10 before falling in love with guitar at 12 years old in 1978. At 15 years old I got a 4-track recorder tape machine and learned that if you want to record well, it’s important to understand the role of bass guitar and how all the instruments fit together in recordings. I used a 4 track cassette machine to learn how to record overdubs, since then I’ve built studios over the years to record bands and albums. This new 'Octopus' song is a sample of my love of the art of recording and capturing “improvisation” as a way to create interesting music as a solo artist. I couldn’t think of a title for it until I saw the movie “My Octopus Teacher” which made me fall in love with the extreme intelligence and diversity of the amazing animal known as the Octopus.”
The instrumental track, "Octopus", is available via all digital streaming services here.
