Welcome to the website of Frank Robinson: Songwriter, musician, artist and author.
I write songs in many different genres and promote my country songs under the alias of Mountain Rio. All Mountain Rio songs are recorded in Nashville by producer Stacy Hogan and feature the wonderful vocals of Mike Lusk.
Other aliases I release my songs under are Athenos, The Amazing Doctor Love, Tinsel, Mixed Bag, The Snowmen and Franchesco De Rosa. All of my songs are released on my own Mountain Rio label and are available to purchase from major download stores.
In December 2019 Rockabilly Christmas featuring Mountain Rio reached number 2 in the digitaldjpool.com record pool pop chart and Christmas Festa featuring Franchesco De Rosa reached number 4 in the dance chart.An impressive achievement as digitaldjpool.com is considered one of the best record pools in the world.
I have had a number of chart entries in The Official European Independent Music Chart, which is based on the amount of air play received by a song.The highest position reached to date was in December 2015 when ‘Babes’, a pop/dance track, featuring The Amazing Doctor Love, reached number two.
In July 2016 ‘Lazing In The Summer Sun’ featuring Athenos reached number 7.
As well as writing songs I am the author of a number of books and these are listed below.All of my books are available from the Amazon Kindle store.
At the start of January 2019 I released an album called ‘Progressive House Instrumentals’ which is a collection of Progressive House Instrumentals featuring Franchesco De Rosa.
