I am a musician originally from New Orleans. I sing and play guitar. I have been playing music all over Louisiana for many years and played in rock bands, metal bands, funk bands and alternative rock bands doing both covers and originals. Right now I’m working solo doing acoustic/ vocal shows.
Frank Anthony Caronna’s The Meaning of Happiness: A combination of many styles of music that creates, shapes, and molds, this unique form of acoustic/vocal rock with presence, power, and emotion.
A little insight on the songs in The Meaning Of Happiness.
Smile: This is a positive song that I wrote about my personal experience with life. I believe that no amount of success is worth it if you are always upset or unhappy. So no matter what life throws at you, keep a smile on your face. It’s the best armor against bitterness.
Smoke Remains: When things seem really bad, and appear to get worse, as long as there is hope, good will over come, the bad guys will be defeated, and only the smoke remains.
The Life I Almost Missed: This song is about self discovery. Disconnecting from what you are only to connect with what you are meant to be. A life of fulfillment, love and happiness. A life I almost missed.
The Meaning of Happiness: What is the meaning of happiness? This is my discovery from my own experiences. Listen to the words carefully and you might hear something that will answer a question that has been burning in your mind for years. The more you listen to this song the more the meaning of happiness becomes clear.
Not Of This World: There is nothing worse than to be so close to something, yet be so far away. Many people experience a time in their life when they want something so badly, but they know that they will never get it because of who they are or where they come from. To feel Alien. To feel not of this world.
No Rest: Sometimes you feel like everyone is against you. No one is your friend. You are tired, confused and all alone. Everyone has experienced this at one point in their lives. That is why everyone can truly relate to this song. This song is not to upset you or bring you down. Just to remind you that things have been bad before and you survived. If you find your self in trouble now, relax, you will survive this as well.

Senti Mio Quode: Both of my parents are Sicilian so I learned to speak Italian at a very young age. Actually I learned the Sicilian dialect and had to adjust to speaking Italian. Not too many people speak the Sicilian dialect any more, so when I’ve visited my relatives in Sicily, I’ve had to learn to break away from the Sicilian dialect and speak straight Italian. Senti Mio Quode is straight Italian. It means “Hear my heart”. It is a true modern Italian love song.
I Will Never Be Afraid: There are many people in this world who are more then happy to crush your hopes and dreams and plant fear in your heart. Remember that the possibilities are endless as long as you have hope. Only you can allow just the good influences inside you and shield yourself from the venom sent by those who hate.
Realistic Dream: This is a song about a weird vivid dream that I had. Vivid dreams can be fun, scary or puzzling. My favorite vivid dreams are of flying. It is a very freeing experience to fly, hover, and go where ever you want to go. The only bad part about it is to wake up and realize that it was just a dream and you can’t really fly. The peculiar thing about vivid dreams is that although you are doing something that goes against all logic (Flying without a plane), your mind accepts it as reality without question as long as you are dreaming.
