"Time Out New York"

"Hoier plays fun, mostly upbeat Americana." - Time Out New York


"Feral Foster"

"Possibly one of the greatest songwriters of our generation." - Feral Foster


"Hickory Wind"

ON LOVERS & DOLLARS
"Frank's talented songwriting and vocals recalls Josh Ritter ("Moonshiner"), Gordon Gano ("I've Made Up My Mind") and Ryan Adams ("We Both Live in Brooklyn, Babe" could be an outtake from "Gold"). "Jesus Don't Give Tax Breaks To The Rich" is a timeless tune that unfortunately never gets delivered to Washington, DC."
- Hickory Wind Blog


"Weemayk Movies"

ON LOVERS & DOLLARS
"sounds like something you'd find in a used record shop, shelved appropriately between copies of The Band's Music From Big Pink and John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band album."
- Weemayk Movies


"NPR"

"the Weber Brothers join Hoier on Lovers and Dollars, and together they've created a memorable collection of Americana songs."
-NPR Music - NPR Music


"Americana UK"

.."evokes the spirit of Woodie Guthrie. Lovers & Dollars is a fab album; upbeat, interesting and hopelessly catchy."
-AmericanaUK - Americana UK


"Brooklyn Paper"

"Let’s be frank: If there are better roots rockers than Frank Hoier, we don’t know them. Since his arrival, Hoier has become a big name on the underground folk circuit — and a bridge between the anti-folk and traditional-folk camps (he’s in both)."
-The Brooklyn Paper - Brooklyn Paper


"Pop Headwound Review"

"Hoier has that rare gift of writing a song that sounds like it's been around
forever – that mystic, instantly-classic feel." -Eric Wolfson, Pop Headwound - Eric Wolfson


"Urban Folk Review"

"Hoier has a beautiful voice that evokes all the sweetness, humility, and genuineness
that audiences have come to sense in him as a musician, and a person.
While many New York songwriters branching from the Dylan archetype come off
as hacks, Frank Hoier has a distinct magnetism, and is currently one of the
city's best in this vein." -Urban Folk Magazine Issue 9 - Urban Folk Magazine


"Deli Review"

"Songs pull smiles from even the most put-upon listener."
-The Deli Magazine NYC Winter 2007 - The Deli Magazine

Bio

Frank Hoier is a singer songwriter poised at the front of a new generation of roots Americana influenced music. Four years ago, Frank Hoier packed up his life in California and moved to NYC. After just three months on the New York music scene, Frank made the cover of the city's Urban Folk Magazine. In New York, he is a regular fixture at Jalopy Theatre's Roots n' Ruckus Americana Variety show, but can also be found performing at The Cake Shop, Mercury Lounge, and Pete's Candy Store. Frank Hoier has shared the stage with such notable acts as Jaymay, The Bowmans, Ingrid Michaelson, Creaky Boards, Shilpa Ray, Sam Shepard, Pat Conte and Calvin Johnson. Well practiced in the ragtime and slide guitar blues of Blind Willie McTell, the vocal enthusiasm of Little Richard, and Dylan's lyric delivery, Frank Hoier brings a fresh perspective and a rock'n'roll energy to Folk music. His Guthrie-esque anthem "Jesus Don't Give Tax Breaks To The Rich" has been hailed as "the most perfect protest song written yet this millennium" (PopHeadWound). The song made the Top 50 on Neil Young's anti-war website, Living with War Today.

A documentary of the recording process of his 2008 "Lovers & Dollars", aptly named "Making Lovers & Dollars" was filmed by Justin Remer, and premiered in August to a packed crowd at Sidewalk Cafe in New York City.
