(CelebrityAccess) – Cult singer-songwriter Bob Frank has passed away at the age of 75.

Light in the Attic, who reissued his debut self-titled album in 2014, confirmed the news in a statement.

Born and raised in Memphis, Tennesse, Frank was a Vietnam vet. Upon his return home in 1968, he moved around the country, working on a ranch in Colorado and a cannery in Washington state and living on communes in Northern California. Eventually, he moved to Nashville, where he was hired to write commercial country songs for the Tree music publishing company.

Frank soon signed to Vanguard Records, which released his self-titled debut in 1972. The album wasn’t a commercial success, however, was considered a rare collector’s item. His songs touched on things like homelessness, drugs use and prostitution.

He reemerged in 2001 with a series of albums released on his label Bowstring Records. Frank’s last album was 2018’s Dancing in Dallas.
