Whether he's singing with gentle menace or bending new curves into a blue note, he is a master of tension and release, and his every wayward impulse is riveting. "Hotter than a Jalapeño pepper and passion from the heart of Texas, audiences have described Frank Macias as defining Texan blues in the true sense of the word."
