Fran
A Private Picture
Out November 15th, 2019 Buy

Chicago-based project Fran began when artist Maria Jacobson taught herself guitar as a way to process change. Following a disillusioning season as a theatre actor and a few failed relationships, Jacobson took a job teaching English in Mexico, which afforded her the downtime to write. Returning to Chicaco, she formed a band—vulnerable, honest indie rock—which Buffablog recommends "for fans of Alvvays, Hop Along, or Jay Som." Their debut LP sees release on Fire Talk Records.
