Frank Meyer

Frank Meyer is a songwriter-musician from Long Beach. Known for his vocal work with Rock n Roll Hall of Famer James Williamson (Iggy and the Stooges), his rock band The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, his LBC band Blind House, and his work with everyone from heavy metal cult hero Thor to New York alt-metal act Warrior Soul to Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti, Frank Meyer is a man of many hats, both literally and figuratively.

In addition to being in the spotlight, Meyer has a diverse professional career behind the scenes. While serving as Sr. Content Producer at Fender Musical Instruments from 2016 to 2020, Frank played a key role in creating the look, style, production and post workflow of the legendary guitar maker’s award-winning and highly successful Fender Play app. Before that Frank was Sr. Interactive Content Producer at NBC’s Esquire Network and G4tv, where he fine-tuned his skills as a director of TV commercials (Dyson, Sonic), promotional spots (Jurassic World, State Farm, Little Caesars) and campaigns (American Ninja Warrior, Knife Fight), while racking up multiple Telly, Webby, and W3 awards along the way. He also morphed into an ace digital content producer and field producer, covering red carpets and events around the world such as Tokyo Game Show in Japan, San Diego’s Comic-Con, GDC in San Francisco, PAX West in Seattle, C.E.S. in Las Vegas, E3 in Los Angeles and many, many others. Yet more Telly and Webby awards were nabbed when he created G4tv’s web series Freestyle 101, as well as digital shoulder programming for TV shows like American Ninja Warrior, Attack of the Show, X-Play, Friday Night Tykes, Best Bars in America, and others.

Additionally, Frank is a published author, writing rock ‘n’ roll biographies such as On the Road with the Ramones (Bobcat/Omnibus) and When the Wall of Sound Met The New York Underground (Rhino/WB), and editing Van Halen: A Visual History 1978 – 1985 (Chronicle). His latest books, Diaper Dude and From Dude to Dad: The Diaper Dude Guide to Pregnancy are both on Penguin/Random House.

Along the way, Frank directed a documentary film about a Wu-Tang Clan affiliate rapper who suffered a near-fatal brain aneurysm and his road to recovery, the award-winning Risen: The Story of Chron “Hell Razah” Smith.
