Fran & Josh [+]

Acoustic Showcase featuring Fran and Josh

Free Admission

Fran and Josh combine impressive flamenco guitar with flavours of reggae, hip hop and
latin music, vocals vary from mellow singing, to rap.

Originally their music developed from a love for jamming together.
They met at the age of 15, Josh had been writing poems since the age of 10 and first
picked up a guitar when he was 12.   Francesco was brought up amongst musicians and at an early age had classical training which allowed him an understanding in chord progressions and scales far beyond anything that josh could comprehend upon their meeting.

With Josh’s words, and Frans inspirational mind and ear for music, they created a
friendship and musical bond admiring artists such as Paco De Lucia, Paco Pena,
Rodrigo Y Gabriela and Tommy Emmanuel… Through studying these musicians and many other styles such as Gypsy Jazz and Folk, all the way to Dub step and Drum n Bass, Gabba and even all the cheesy toss we hear on a regualar basis… they began to develop their own songs.

Not long ago the first unsigned band to play on the ‘Live Drivetime’ session on ‘XFM
Manchester’ where they covered the song “Better off Alone” by Alice Deejay. They
have since been invited back to play at Clint Boon’s wife’s Tea Parties..

MTV’s Brand spanking new music website snapped them up for a session you can see
here http://www.mtv.co.uk/artists/fran-and-josh

They recieved some sneaky interest from 14th Floor Records in London, but now are
working with the big chill label towards getting signed and releasing an album. Silly
14th Floor.. Should’ve grabbed ‘um while they had the chance..
