"Pop Headwound Quote"

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


"NPR Quote"

"the Weber Brothers join Hoier on Lovers and Dollars, and together they've created a memorable collection of Americana songs. The music on the album draws from traditional folk and blues while displaying distinct rock and roll flair."
-NPR Music - NPR


"Urban Folk Quote"

"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 - Urban Folk Magazine


"AmericanaUK Quote"

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

Bio

Frank Hoier is a singer songwriter of a new generation of Americana roots influenced music.  Four years ago, Frank Hoier packed up his life in Southern 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’s a regular fixture at The Sidewalk Café, The Downstairs Dustup, & Roots n’ Ruckus, but can also be found performing at The Cake Shop, Mercury Lounge, Piano’s, and Pete’s Candy Store. Frank Hoier has shared the stage with such notable acts as Jaymay, The Bowmans, 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. Backed by rock'n'roll prodigy siblings, The Weber Brothers, Frank's album Lovers & Dollars was self released on November 11, 2008. The December 2008 North American tour with The Weber Brothers went from Vermont, to South Carolina, to Chicago and back to Brooklyn.
Frank's internet show "Rhythm & News" on Brooklynpaper.com features an original folk song bi-weekly on local Brooklyn topics.
In 2009 he was nominated by The Brooklyn Paper to be Poet Laureate of Brooklyn.
