"Frans Schuman Rocks Shed Showcase"

This week Fishbowl Records had the opportunity to talk with Frans
Schuman of New Orleans, Louisiana who had a killer performance at The
Shed TONIGHT! If you ever get a chance, listen to this Indie Folkster
who has played and traveled around various parts of France and the
United States. Read a little about him here and be sure to check him out
on facebook

Records: Thanks so much for talking with us today Frans! To start out,
where are you from, what is your background, and where did you get your
start in music?

Frans Schuman: I’m from New Orleans. I started out in Paris, France.

FR: How would you describe your music? Do you write your own songs?

FS: It’s myself with my guitar and a harmonica, so I would say it’s
folk. I do write my songs.

FR: How long/far will you be traveling to play at The Shed this Thursday?

FS: From Tupelo.

FR: That’s a pretty long drive! You’ve traveled a lot though,
internationally so it probably doesn’t seem so bad. What is the longest
or farthest you have traveled to play? Where is your favorite place to play?

FS: I drove from Memphis to Nashville and back on Thursday. I like to
play in bars.

FR: Well that makes the drive from Tupelo seem like nothing. Who are
your favorite artists/bands?

FS: Peter Doherty, Bob Dylan.

FR: Do you have any albums, or any albums in the making? If so, what are
they all about or what do we have to look forward to?

FS: I have one album self produced in 2009, and will start to record the
next one hopefully within a couple of months.

FR: That’s awesome, we will look forward to hearing it. So what is your
favorite part about music and performing?

FS: Playing live and writing.

FR: What do you do outside of performing?

FS: I work to finance my music.

FR: What can we expect from your performance at The Shed?

FS: Listen to original songs, something new.

FR: Well thanks so much for talking to us and we look forward to your
performance at The Shed tonight! - Fishbowl Records


Frans Schuman, 2009, LP



Frans Schuman is an Indie Folkster from New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. He plays his raw sound with a broken guitar and a harmonica. He performed his first concerts in Europe where he played from drunkards joints to packed venues such as La Bellevilloise.
On a shoestring budget he recorded his debut album in July 2009 in a basement rehearsal room outside Paris. It will be released in May 2010.
“Sincerity, rather rare these days” comes out from his folk songs, inhabited by a “true spirit”. As one listener puts it: “I woke up this morning with the grey sky, put the radio on and poured myself a cup of coffee. As I heard that sweet folk ballad called Neon Dirt Road with this soothing voice all of a sudden the day didn’t seem that bad. Even my coffee has taste this morning!”

He has just started recording his new album to be released by the end of the year.
They call me Franz, They call me Zimmy, They call me Franck, They call me Hans, That's not my name!
That's not my name!
That's not my name!
