RRR Podcast #217 ft. Paulo Emilio Franco Londoño

Paulo Franco is a Richmond, Virginia based bilingual singer/songwriter.Paulo’s music is a reflection of growing up a first generationAmerican. Although he was born and raised in the United States, Paulo’s parents hail from Medellin, Colombia. He grew up with American music, but the music of his parent’s homeland was also a part of that soundtrack. His Americana music is a blend of rock, old school country, alt-country and blues. The music draws heavily from influences like Steve Earle, Hank Williams, John Hiatt, Slaid Cleaves, Chris Knight, the Gram Parsons inspired music of the Rolling Stones, the Drive By Truckers and The Grateful Dead. Paulo has also begun writing songs in Spanish, fusing traditional Latin and Colombian rhythms with American Rock and Roll. That fusion can be heard on his homage to Medellín, La Estrella del País. The heart of his music is storytelling, and his family is a great source of inspiration – from the love story of Paulo’s parents in “Married in a Black Dress” to the roller coaster emotions of leaving his daughter behind for her first year of college in “Rolling Back to Raleigh.” Paulo is a songwriter who proudly wears all of his emotions on his sleeves.
