Bio

PACO ALDEBARAN

-Being a founding member and the main composer of Montreal sensation Skyjuice, lead singer Cisco Frank (a.k.a. Paco Aldebaran) never lost his groove. With this new solo venture Paco needed to explore the slow tempos of Soul, Reggae, Jazz, Samba and Latin rhythms. Coming from a mixed cultural background, Paco feels at home in a fusion of musical styles refusing to be trapped in a particular genre or form. Bare beats, various percussive instruments and dubby bass lines result in an undertow effect pulling in the listener. Enhanced by the gentle, rocking waves of the harmonic arrangements-- pick-pluck wah guitars; floating Fender-Rhodes piano; bubbling analog synths and tidal horn & flute sections-- the vibe is simply irresistible.

-Intuitive approach to composition

-Paco is also a busy Selector (Franky Selector) hosting his own night (Sunday Shining) at the Quartier Latin Pub in Montreal. You'll also catch him at several other clubs around town spinning his trademark rare groove gems. He collaborates with various producers and D.J.'s on House/Club tracks. He is also the keyboard player and co-founder of Future Shock, an instrumental live electronic music project. He produces and writes for various other artists and singers as well. Paco's signature vocal tone is much in demand for various features and collaborations--guest vocalist etc.

-Lyrical aspect -CONSCIOUS VIBIN'
-The Lyrical aspect of Paco's work is closely related to the Spoken Word tradition in terms of form and content--introspective poetry; social awareness; rhythmic phonetic combinations and a tongue in cheek kind of humor would be his trademark signature. Paco uses words the way a painter would use colors to harmonize the vibrational shades of the music they accompany; would you be surprised to know that he is a skilled visual artist as well?!

Following the legendary reputation of his other band Skyjuice, Paco Aldebaran's music reaches another level during a live performance. The team of extremely talented musicians surrounding Paco on stage gives the impression of a lively family reunion: song structures stretch; grooves are born on impulse; word is morphed into melody; inspiration is celebrated.
