I started writing short stories and poems since my teenage years. At age 11 I asked my parents to buy me a guitar and not too long after I received it as a gift that I started to write my own melodies and lyrics. Since then, I have never stopped.
My early song writing has been mainly influenced by the Italian melodic sound, as I was born in Rome and I have lived in Italy until my early 20s. I then moved to New York to be exposed to a larger music scene, and it was during my years in New York City that I naturally gravitated to the underground rock scene and subsequently evolved my sound to what I call Melodic Rock.
I formed a band, Francesca Love & The Beating Hearts, and we been performing my original songs live in numerous iconic venues for original music including Tobacco Roads, Piano’s, Earlene’s Grocery, the Bitter End, The Shrine, The Side Walk Café, Desmond’s Tavern, and Klub 45, among others.
I have often declared favoring live performances over studio recording as I believe that singing directly to my fans conveys a more connecting experience for both; I am however working on my well overdue first EP to be released soon, but you can already find my single releases on main streaming platforms, such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc… See you around!
