Fran Cruz was born in 1975, in Seville, Spain. In 1983, being only 8 years old, Fran is deeply impressed by Michael Jackson's “Thriller” video. That is the precise moment when Music breaks into Fran´s life, and from then on it stayed forever.

It is not until two years later when Fran has his first contact with studies on musical theory and with different musical instruments, joining the small local school orchestra. From that point on, Fran´s interest for the art of combining tones and sounds with the right tempo has been growing without limits.

Fran learns to play guitar in a self-taught way at the age of 12, learning songs from The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson... and others.

But something happened in a natural way when one day Fran begins to write his own songs. Something that he would continue to develop and work on to this day. In 1991, along with some friends, Fran creates his first band and begins to perform live. From that moment on, and with different bands and various musicians from all over the world, the act of performing live becomes his daily life, his school, his way of making a living, and ultimately his door to discover other angles, features, and twists in music. He has been playing and composing for and with other bands and other artists during these last 28 years, taking him through the stages all over Spain, England, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Germany, USA and Switzerland (the country where Fran has currently set his residence).

Fran has written songs not only for the bands he has collaborated with, but also composed specifically for many other Spanish and Latin American artists. He has always combined live performances with musical composition, not only writing songs of various styles for various other artists, but also composing jingles and music themes for radio, television and films. Because of this, Fran has developed a vast experience with orchestration, arrangements, and musical production. Although he can play several instruments, and has studies in orchestration and violin, Fran has always considered himself above all a vocal singer and a composer rather than an instrumentalist.

To compose and write scores for the film and motion picture industry is one of Fran´s greatest passions. A passion that unfortunately has never been easy for Fran to develop because of the time-consuming effort that has always been required in traveling through different countries, to prepare so many different repertoires, and to polish the work of his live stage performances.

Fran now feels more than ever that the time has come to concentrate more on this passion... to be a composer and create music for everything related to the audiovisual world.
