The best kept secret in music


"Treva Blomquist"

"…hilarious…a bucket of laughs!"

- Nashville Recording Academy

"Ellis Long"

" 'I'm a dork and that's the way it goes?' Extra credit for having the cahones to use that line! Good Job."

- Thomasville, Georgia

"Monica Rabago"

"…his [Franco's] grotesquely charismatic presence was more than a little distracting. My only saving grace was when he played the piano...being hypnotized by keys and fingers, that I'm almost certain, were one. " - Seattle, WA

Feeling a bit camera shy


Shall we face the truth? Humanity is awkward. That means that you and I are awkward in at least some small way. Day in and day out we live and grapple with this awkwardness that afflicts us and also rescues us. Some of us may have a harder time of it than others, some of us embrace the struggle and some of us are in denial.

Some of us do all we can to conceal our inner awkwardness beneath a mask of normality...or in the case of certain rock stars who take themselves more seriously than small pox; beneath a mask of pretentious and wholly ludicrous angst.

But Franco Bertucci is not in denial. No, this young professional goofball and songwriter who sports a rich and surprising baritone voice, as well as nine younger siblings, stands on the curb at his full height of five feet seven inches and unabashedly bares his soul to the world, making his piano and guitar dance a graceful, quirky dance while out of his rather large throat soar songs of truth, beauty, awkwardness and oatmeal.

Be forewarned that when you listen to Franco you will feel so refreshed, relieved and vindicated that you will literally, "lift yourself up by your own boot straps and kick yourself out the door," to quote his song, "Ballad of Finding One's Self." You will feel such happiness at having discovered this strange music, so exceptionally human and humorous, so powerfully moving and so perfectly awkward that your life will undoubtedly be irreversibly changed for at least a week.
