Folk singer-songwriter Frank Turner refreshed his musical palate when his band Million Dead and the post-hardcore music scene got purposely complicated. "The discovery for me was that you could be intense without having to scream at people," says Turner. Simply playing C, G and D was revolutionary to him.

Listen to the whole in-studio session to hear Mary Lucia chat with Frank about what band got him through boarding school with a certain royal prince, what a eucalyptus smelling Koala has to do with the "The Way I Tend To Be" single and what it was like performing with The Hold Steady at the Toronto Urban Roots Festival.
