Fran Roz’s upbringing is a testament to his artistry. He was born in the Figaró-Monmany region of Spain to an Algerian father and a Basque mother, relocating to LA when he was a young child. A core memory of his youth includes his frequent trips back to the Basque country, which is where his grandmother introduced him to his first love, the piano.

In high school, Fran Roz picked up both guitar and drums, simultaneously discovering his passion for both grunge music and the skater scene. He channeled the rockstar vision early on; Fran Roz was a part of numerous alt-rock bands across the LA music scene while he was in high school (usually on bass, guitar, or vocals), and before he knew it, he was touring across America. He began penning his own songs at age 17, quickly realizing that he had his own artistic vision that he was itching to see through, leading to the launch of his solo career.

“Summer Sunshine” follows Fran Roz’s breakthrough singles “BODY BAG (ft. Point North)” and “DOUBTS (feat. Ryan Oakes)”, both of which solidified the rising act’s place as an artist to watch. Fran Roz is known for his captivating live shows, with fans from near and far pouring into iconic LA venues to witness the eccentric performer in his element. He has sold out the House Of Blues in Anaheim with Point North, Jeris Johnson & JordyPurp, and headlined a nearly sold out show at The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood. Fran Roz also has a show coming up this summer with Ryan Oakes, Layto & True North in Los Angeles (tickets for purchase here, media passes available upon request).
