My name is Mike Franano from Overland Park, Ks. I have released 6 albums of original music in the last 8 years. Rock, blues, and reggae but music with heart and soul. 

I am a songwriter and guitar player and have written all the lyrics for all 6 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 and the 6th album "Dreams of '72" was released in June 2020. Classic rock, blues, and reggae. 

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. 

My music is available on iTunes, Amazon,  CD Baby, for download and Spotify, Youtube and many other streaming sites. Besides music I love fishing, travel, photography, and antiques.

Thanks for listening and if you like the music please spread the word.
