Welcome to the website of Frank Robinson songwriter, author and musician
I write songs in many different genres and promote my country songs under the nom de plume of Mountain Rio. All Mountain Rio songs are recorded in Nashville by producer Stacy Hogan and feature the wonderful vocals of Mike Lusk.
Other nom de plumes 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.
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.
In March 2018 ‘Ballerina’, a chillout/ambient/trance track was released and continues to receive a good amount of airplay world wide.Video available to view from this site.
May saw the release of ‘America’ by Athenos to celebrate Independence Day.This too is receiving world wide airplay.Video available to view from this site.
