Francisco Martin just released a new track, “freak show.” Check out the new song and music video below!
After his first-ever tour, and a clutch of well-received singles, Los Angeles-based, San Francisco-born pop singer-songwriter, and producer Francisco Martin realized he had an all-consuming yearning to be his authentic self in his music. To that end, he worked feverishly in his apartment at all hours of the night while facing complaints from the neighbors. He now emerges with his first true artistic statement, the 6-song EP, Manic, a bold collection of emotionally-raw pop-rock.
“I am not afraid to share what is in my heart with brash honesty,” Francisco says. “I want to push boundaries. People see one version of me, and I want them to see all of me. I am ready to come out of my shell as an artist and show who I really am as a person.”
Francisco first shot to fame with American Idol season 18 in 2020 where he placed Top 5. From there, he quickly released a few singles before embarking on a fall coast-to-coast tour. His heart-on-sleeve soulful pop has garnered favorable comparisons to songwriter artists such as James Bay, John Mayer, Maggie Rogers, and Ed Sheeran.
The new track is really well done. The energy of the song is contagious too. The real standout here is his vocals. He has such a great voice. It is really refreshing that it is pushed to the forefront of the song. Definitely a standout this week. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
