My name is Mike Franano from Overland Park, Ks. I have released 5 albums of original music in the last 6 years. Rock, blues, and reggae but music with heart and soul.

I am a song writer and guitar player and have written all the lyrics for all 5 albums and Co-wrote the music with Chas Evans. "Songs for a Girl" was my first album in 2013, followed by "Rough Diamond" in 2015 and "I Want to Know" in 2016. In 2018 I released my 4th album of original music "A Year in the Life". Each album is a unique blend of rock, rock ballads, reggae, and a little blues.

My 5th Album titled "Clouds and Mist" was released in February, 2019.

For me music is not a business. I write what I want and hope that others enjoy the results. That's the beauty of modern music, no one is telling me what I can or should be writing it is complete artistic freedom. 

If you like my music I'd love to hear from you at newtime87@hushmail.com and my music is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby for download and Spotify, Youtube and many other streaming sites. Thanks for listening.

Mike
