Frank Moore began his life in Bay-de-Verde, Newfoundland, and grew up in Toronto from the age of seven. His quest to become a singer/songwriter began fresh out of high school, playing clubs in Yorkville in the Sixties. After being mentored by rock ‘n roll legend, Ronny Hawkins, he soon became a regular performer on the
CBC variety series, The Good Company. Frank also owes a debt of gratitude to director, the late Peter Carter, for giving him his first taste of acting on camera in the CBC short film, God’s Sparrows. Another major influence was the legendary musician/composer/arranger, the late Ron Collier, who applied his great talent and expertise to arranging Frank’s original songs for the movie, Face-Off.
After appearing in the Toronto production of the musical, HAIR, in 1969/70, Frank was hired by the late Bill Glassco, to appear in the first productions of the Tarragon Theatre. Since then, he has spent most of his time in the world of acting, but whether it be appearing in some of Toronto’s major stage musicals like, Les Miserables, or by including it in his own writing, as in his novella, The Return, music continues to be an integral part of his life and work.
