Frank Migliorelli & The Dirt Nappers

Frank Migliorelli has written and published a library of music for advertising agencies, children's publishers, and video game projects. He's been a finalist in top songwriting competitions and performs either solo, or with his band, The Dirt Nappers.
He's produced recordings for Rounder Records-including the award-winning duo "Satan and Adam", Point Blank (Bill Perry-"Love Scars") and a number of other international releases. He's written and produced music that has appeared on NBC's television show "Homicide", an "X-Files" video game, numerous video games and educational programs for Scholastic and Sunburst, and even wrote a soundtrack for a "Chippendales" video. His creative work extends beyond songwriting, as he has had a successful career in interactive media as an award winning exhibit and game designer, and a college professor at New York University.
In addition to performing with The Dirt Nappers, Frank hosts a monthly songwriter showcase at The Green Growler in Croton on Hudson, NY. Starting it’s third season in the spring of 2017, the Singer- Songwriter Series features artist from Brooklyn to Boston, and beyond- performing original music, accompanied by a great selection of beer.
The influences are easy to spot in the mix of his original songs. Raised on 45s and AM radio, and an ongoing passion for great songwriting, the music has a pop sensibility that makes it easy to listen to, and easy to remember. Rooted deep in the best of American folk, rock n' roll and soul, Frank and the band bring a great show to the stage wherever they play.
Album: Bass,Drums,Guitars & Organs (2017)
New York-based singer-songwriter Frank Migliorelli, along with his band The Dirt Nappers, is gearing up to release his new album, Bass, Drums, Guitars and Organs on March 15th. Migliorelli, who has written and produced music for advertising agencies, children’s publishers, and video games began writing and performing his own material over the past decade. “When you’ve done everything from writing music for little kids, ad agencies and half-naked guys in bowties,” says Migliorelli, “you want to step back and try something different.”
With this latest project, Migliorelli is trying something different: taking a simpler approach with his song craft, something which is perfectly reflected in the album’s title – Bass, Drums, Guitars and Organs. Throughout the varied tracks, Migliorelli aimed to capture a “live” stripped down feel while balancing acoustic and electric sounds and giving you a true sense of their live show. “I didn’t want to do a bunch of overdubs-we did as much as we could in one or two takes, and then moved on.” Migliorelli said “We focused on putting down the right parts, and resisted layering overdub after overdub-I think it worked.”
Recorded in Migliorelli’s home studio, Bass, Drums, Guitars and Organs features ten self-penned tracks infused with a solid dose of what he calls “Napper rock n’ roll sensibility.” Featuring a few old favorites, including the rollicking Great American Song Contest Finalist tune “Wound Up Woman,” as well as a new acoustic, and somber, version of “Former Femmes Fatales & Romeos,” the album blends guitar-driven rock, roots, rockabilly, and soul into one seamless collection. Opening track “When She’s Walking By Your Side” begins the collection on a buoyantly joyful note with its smooth harmonies and pop melody while “I’ve Been On My Knees,” which was inspired by the deaths of people close to him, reflects on spirituality. Other highlights include the drifting, dreamlike “Rafferty Train,” a story song about leaving it all behind and “Baby Put A Dress On” a lighthearted, sweet tune about a night at the “Firecracker Lounge” with your sweetheart. Whether musing on lost love, new love, or life events, Migliorelli’s songs will capture that all important organ…your heart.
Additionally, the album features the musicianship of Tony Tino on bass, Phil Cimino on drums, Eric Puente on percussion, Jeremy Baum on organ, Andy Stack and Duncan Cleary on guitars, Sherryl Marshal, Steve Chizmadia & Dan Pelletier on vocals, and Mike “Booker” Heaphy on steel guitar.
Enclosed/Attached is a copy Bass, Drums, Guitars and Organs. We would be pleased if you would consider the album for airplay or podcast feature. Frank Migliorelli is also available for interviews and other creative media opportunities.
