Nico Franc is an LA based recording artist who has brought his design background to the world of an independent singer-songwriter. From writing to performing to designing his merch, Nico utilizes the principle of minimalism to communicate every thought or feeling clearly and simply. His music conversationally translates the moments in life where love is at stress, leading the listener to reminisce in their own experiences with love. “Music has always been therapeutic for me. It creates a little pocket for me to put down my problems for a moment, and when I shared that for the first time, I knew it was the only thing I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Music taught me how to celebrate myself, and the idea of consciously creating a present moment in people’s lives to celebrate themselves fuels everything I do…” Franc remarks. Since 2016, he has embarked on ever-growing nation-wide tours that started in his home region of New England and are now spreading to the south and midwest. Along with performing on one of LA’s most famous stages, The Troubadour, Franc has sold out The Hotel Cafe (one of LA’s most prominent music venues), opened up for Judah and the Lion at Sundance Film Festival 2019, and placed his songs movies (“The Ring of Silence” 2019) and television (ABC).
After signing to Rob Cavallo’s (producer of Green Day, Alanis Morissette, Dave Matthews) management agency, Done Deal Management in mid 2020, Franc shifted focus from performance to recording and releasing music as the world shut down due to the pandemic. Alongside Cavallo and with the help of Paris-based producer Dean Woodson, Franc embarked on creating the next chapter of his music and has begun releasing his first singles in 2021 with “Paint in the Dark”, and a powerful follow up with “Stuck” in 2022. Arjan Timmermans, Head of Editorial at Apple, wrote, “ ‘Stuck’ is one of those rare finds that has pure, unbridled hit potential. It taps into a universal sentiment that people everywhere can instantly relate to. It’s not about the individual melody, lyrics, or performance per se—it’s about the feeling those three create together.” Later in 2022, Franc sold out his first two NFT drops with his next single, “Grateful”, and now in2023, is rolling out monthly releases starting with “Forget About Us” in April, 2023, and “Leave this Room”May 2023, and “Talk” in June of 2023.
