About Johnny Franco

Powerful singer-songwriter

Johnny Franco

 "I worked as an actor for most of my life, which got me an electric guitar and a way into the music business in Brazil. I had wrote 50 songs by the time I was 16. I wrote songs for advertisements, short films, soccer teams and highschool crushes. I sang them to friends at their apartments or home-studios, then I sang them on TV with my band. Now I sing them in the streets to make a living. I had to fall in love to understand what's real. Then I had to leave my country and follow her to Portland."
