Frank Swart (born September 5, 1961) is an American musician, composer, producer, and audio engineer. He is best known in the music community for his experimental blues jam band, Funkwrench and for being a founding member of American rock band SIMO. Swart also served as the audio engineer for American alternative rock band Pixies, creating the band's first recordings.

Swart was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Nathan and Irma Swart. His older sister Debbie gave him a bass guitar for his 13th birthday, which, combined with her record collection, launched his lifelong obsession for music. Upon graduating high school, Swart attended Berklee College of Music.

Swart began performing with and recording local bands in the Boston area in the early 1980’s. In 1987 he formed the group, Who Be Dat?, a punk funk outfit with future G Love & Special Sauce drummer, Jeffrey Clemens and poet/frontman Nate Solod. In 1988, he formed Ultra Blue, a band with Robert Holmes, guitarist of the band 'Til Tuesday. Later that same year, Swart formed a band called the Immortals with former Face to Face drummer, Billy Beard, and singer, guitarist, and future Kings of Leon producer, Angelo Petraglia (Angelo). In 1989, Swart formed one final band during his time in Boston called Candy Bar with Mark Sandman of the alternative rock bands Morphine and Treat Her Right. Swart engineered and mixed Treat Her Right's 1991 release titled "What's Good For You?". He later collaborated on Morphine's The Jury and Birthday Cake.
