ABout

 

Frank LoCrasto is a Texas born, Brooklyn-based musician, specializing in piano and synthesizers. He studied music at The New School and has toured and recorded  extensively as a side man and leader since arriving in New York City in 2001. He has also composed and recorded original scores for independent films.
He has released three solo albums, "When You're There" (Maxjazz 2006), "El Dorado" (Hundred Pockets 2011), and "LoCrasto" (Storytime 2015). "When You're There" is a mostly acoustic jazz record featuring a small chamber orchestra on 4 out of the 9 tracks. "El Dorado" was recorded in his basement apartment in Brooklyn and utilizes tube amps, drum machines, tape echo, pianos and vintage synths to create an alchemy of psychedelic and ambient music. "LoCrasto" was recorded with a similar approach but with a live band  in a recording studio. A fourth album is in the works for a 2017  fall release.
In addition to solo projects, LoCrasto has recorded and toured internationally with several established artist including Jeremy Pelt, Nicholas Payton, Pat Martino, Greg Osby, Wallace Roney, and James Iha. Other collaborators include: Lapland, Breastfist, Nightlands, Cass McCombs, and Julian Velard. He has appeared on over 40 records as a side man.
