Francisco Martin is a singer-songwriter who creates music that blends neo-soul, soft rock, and adult contemporary styles. He is known for his soulful and vibrant vocals, which he showcases in his latest single "Passenger Princess," a lullaby for the long-distance driver that celebrates the joy and beauty of new love. The song features mesmerizing melodies and a free, radical-like soundscape that bridges the gap between Francisco's influences of indie rock and soul.
Francisco was born and raised in the Bay Area and was self-taught in several instruments, including drums, guitar, and piano. He gained a following on SoundCloud for his renditions of favorite covers before shooting to fame with American Idol season 18 in 2020, where he placed Top 5. Since then, he has released several hit singles, including "Swollen" and "If U Need Me," and his debut EP, 'Beautiful Ramblings of a Restless Mind.'
In 2022, Francisco released his first true artistic statement, a 6-song EP called 'Manic,' which explores themes of mental health, relationships, and human disconnection. Now, he is ready to release a series of new singles throughout 2023, showcasing his softer, more sensitive side and paying homage to the viral internet trend of girls who don't drive but get driven spoiledly.
