Frank Horvat is one of the most inventive songwriters to come out of the contemporary scene in Canada (WholeNote Magazine). This award-winning composer’s music is emotional and intense. As a pianist and multi-genre composer, Frank Horvat has made the tricky musical leap that allows him to pursue a niche of his own (Edmonton Journal) exploring themes in his music from love to the environment, mental health and social injustices. His instrumental compositions tell deeply personal stories while permitting audiences to ponder their own.
He has been featured on over a dozen albums on labels including ATMA Classique, Really Records, and Centrediscs. With composition premieres on four continents, his works have been showcased internationally in theatre, feature films, and radio/TV networks including the CBC, CBS, Discovery, HBO, Vice & Bravo.
He ignores boundaries and isn’t afraid to mix politics with art (Ludwig van Toronto) as many of his composition projects revolve around social issues. His artivist projects include the Green Keys Tour, Earth Hour, #music4HRDs, Piano Therapy Tour, and Music for Self-Isolation. Discover Frank’s discography and latest projects at www.frankhorvat.com
