 ALL ABOUT FRANK was founded in March 2015 with Andy Purcell (Electric Groove Temple) on vocals 
but in June 2016, he left and was replaced by Ashley Stone.
 
Ashley  has been hitting notes for over 30 years now, fronting that big metal band "School for the gifted" which took his voice to another level 15 years ago captivating worlwide audiences, but still 
keeping his foot in the door waiting for that next big sound.
15 years is a long time  to watch a big voice slip away in hibernation.
Now he s been reborn again thanks to the sound of All About Frank.
"This is fresh new sound coming from his old school Berkshire lad ."
