“Just one tightly written tune after another ...holy prolific!”
— Sean O'grady, drummer and lead producer of windchilfacter
"This debut album, Hard Echoes is a stellar, powerhouse collection of prog rock, underscored by Klinger's Tom Petty-esque vocals and killer guitar solos"
-Marc Skulnick, Hamilton Magazine
“I've listened to Hard Echoes.... Excellent”
— Anonymous music industry top executive
Windchilfacter, a project lead by Frank Klinger, is a Hamilton, Ontario, Canada based all original band. Almost 5 decades of writing are now being produced, recorded and played by the top local session/live musicians in the region.
In September 2017, less than 5 months after their first meeting in Frank's basement rehearsal studio, they recorded their first Album, "Hard Echoes" at the world renowned Grant Avenue Studio in downtown Hamilton.
Mix together influences from Rock to Blues to Pop, throw in the amazing playing talents and production input from Sean O'grady(lead producer, drums, percussion), Joel Banks (producer, bass), Miles Evans(producer/keyboards/backup vocals) and Chris Ayries(producer,back up vocals) and you arrive at Canada's newest and perhaps most prolific all original band.
They are back in the studio April/May 2018 with 8 more tunes, with dozens more on the back burner to record over the next 18 months. They began playing live on June 23rd 2018 with more gigs to follow....
Prior to final pressing, a copy of Hard Echoes made it's way to a top executive at a major record label. An email was received in response, saying the album was "excellent", but the label could not get involved with an artist who could not give a huge commitment to a label. The addition of backup singers was highly recommended. This person asked not to be identified, as they were doing Windchilfacter a huge favour by simply giving feedback. Frank was encouraged to keep pursuing an audience.
