Last week I was lucky enough to get an invite to see Fr√É¬†n√É¬ßois play an intimate show in a Brooklyn loft. Fr√É¬†n√É¬ßois is an auxiliary player in the indie rock outfit Camera Obscura , where he spends most of his time touring the world. When he is not on the road he is writing abstract pop tunes under his name own name.

Fr√É¬†n√É¬ßois is a French native that moved to Bristol to pursue his music career in 2003. By the sound of his tunes he made the right decision. Last week’s performance was a solo stripped down set from his usual arrangements. He only performed with a guitar and a sampler. The sampler set off an array of ambient sounds, melodies and background noise beneath his melodies that gave him a fuller sound and really made it seem as if he had his own mini orchestra in a box. In short, it was a great performance and I expect big things in the future from Fr√É¬†n√É¬ßois. You can find out more about him on his website or on his myspace.
