The Sleeping Souls

Official Website

Welcome to the website of the The Sleeping Souls - Frank Turner's live and studio band since 2006. The Sleeping Souls are Ben Lloyd, Matt Nasir, Nigel Powell and Tarrant Anderson; we're the guys who put the music behind the voice and the acoustic guitar.

This is a home for some of the mountain of Frank related material we've accumulated over the years: visual, musical, anecdotal. It's not officially Frank Turner, but it's official us for sure. For those of you who want to know a bit more about what goes on behind the scenes with Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, here it is.

Bass Tabs

We've got lots of stuff to put on the site. Tarrant has opened the bidding with a couple of Frank's songs tabbed out for bass, for those of a low-end persuasion.
