Franklin Sane has written hundreds of songs and has performed his original music on the college and club circuit, on network television, and had his original songs featured on college and modern rock radio, and played supporting slots with national touring acts. He has released two albums of original material, REVOLUTION DAY and LIFT, as well as REMIXAMOOZA, an album of 60’s pop/rock refashioned as 80’s dance floor favorites. Franklin has also been active collaborating on originals with artists from New York, England, Holland, Australia and beyond and he has had scored a top 5 hit on London indie radio charts.
After years of close calls with his own brush with fame through various record labels and music industry contracts both here in the states and in the U.K., FRANKLIN SANE aka ZIGGY MOONDUST enlisted a talented band of mates to form the act BOWIE’S ALIVE!: ZIGGY MOONDUST & THE SPIDERS FROM MARS. With a background in classical voice, mime, dance, theatre and performance art Franklin is uniquely qualified to “play the part” in this theatrical show featuring film, slide projections and live band performance. Mr. MOONDUST comes with a fairly complete BOWIE pedigree, a personal career inspired by the starman himself, with all the trappings minus the global fortune and fame of course, but then who’s counting? Even before launching this act those who heard his original recordings had begun to refer to him as THE AMERICAN BOWIE. This act gives FRANKLIN a chance to perform the songs that rocked his world as a fan and a developing artist. A chance to shimmy across the stage with that sense of melodramatic verve which is distinctively BOWIE.
