In 2013 Francesca took the year off from University, primarily to give music a shot. The aim of the year was to find "her sound" and decide if she really wanted to take being a musician seriously. She did a lot of song writing and played around with a few sounds for the first half of the year.
Starting with garage band, and through trial an error Francesca came up with something she was happy to share with the world. The step from there was to do it live.
She was given a loop pedal and spent time experimenting with vocal loops, deciding to incorporate it into her live music performance.
Francesca has been playing live for over 10 months now; from playing mostly covers to now all originals.
She also worked with Tom Iansek from Big Scary, talking about where recording can take her in the future.
She is currently in the middle of writing her first EP, will hopefully be out later in the year.
