About
Hey all, Francesco here. I am a recent graduate of Icon Collective, a production school in California. I currently reside on the East coast, and am looking for someone to collaborate with. Ideally, I would like to work with someone who is more interested in composing, and producing tracks, where as I can then focus on lyrics and melodies. Yet, I am open to collaborate in all areas of the song. Before writing songs, I have also written poetry, prose, stories, etc. and am currently looking to let those breathe, accompanied by sound. I have only just started experimenting with recording my voice in the last year or so, but am currently studying with a vocal coach.

Above is a link to one of my final projects at school, a 3 song EP composed with two classmates. For all three songs, I wrote the lyrics, crafted the vocal melodies, and sang the tracks.
Additionally, I was apart of the recording process, playing guitar, piano and synthesizers. We were all apart of the mixing and mastering process, and all agreed on what we felt that songs needed, respectively.

I feel that these songs respect us three individuals coming together to write three songs. I would not say that this sound is representative of my solo work, though I do feel the lyrics and vocal ideas are something I am pleased with.
Personal Songwriting Goals:
To become a stronger lyricist, singer, and overall songwriter.
Collaboration Goals:
sync placement (film, TV, video games), niche/independent artist release, just for fun
