“It’s a hot time, to be sure. The quick interplays and rhythms ring out and compels attention be paid to the musicianship.”  –PopMatters

Family made Frank Solivan’s passion for and career in music possible. Friends have come easily as he’s taken his open-hearted way with bluegrass on the road and into venues, where his conviviality (sometimes paired with his culinary gifts) leaves audiences closer to him and to one another. Heroes have guided his journey as a mandolinist, singer, songwriter and bandleader. And in many cases, those heroes have become friends and many of his friends have become like family. It’s wonderful but unsurprising to see these threads braided together on the Family, Friends & Heroes album. It’s a toast to the things that matter in life and testimony to how good music can feel when talent is fused with soul and sincerity.  – Craig Havighurst Nashville TN
