New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Rhea Francani bursts onto the music scene with the release of her first single "Dizzy" on January 20, 2015. The single, from the debut EP "I Want You To Know
" due out in February 2015, is accompanied by a high-energy music video capturing the escapades of a girls' night out. An interactive campaign coincides with the releases on Instagram inviting fans to share their favorite things about #DizzyNightOut.
Francani readily admits she's not your typical country music artist as she was raised in Western NY and now lives in New York City. "I am drawn to the southern charm of country music's heartfelt lyrics - songs about love, life and good times," she explains. "I wanted to create an authentic country album drawing on the talents of the Nashville music industry, and those seasoned professionals that could bring my music to life."
The finessed singer/songwriter/performer co-produced the four self-penned tracks at Omni Sound Studios in Nashville with Omni's own Mike Walter, utilizing some of the industry's top studio musicians. LA/Nashville-based music videographer, Jeff Johnson, shot the high-energy music video for "Dizzy" on the streets of Music
City's Lower Broad and its honky tonks and Karaoke bars. "I'm following my heart's highway from NY to Nashville. My fans know me as a city girl with a country heart. I'm thriving in two completely different worlds!"
Rhea has performed various styles of music on numerous stages of theatre. She is an honors graduate of Wagner College, NYC in Musical Theatre Performance. She resides in New York City and is a soon-to-be alumna of Teachers College, Columbia University, NYC with a Master's Degree in Music
Education. Upon graduating, May 2015, Rhea will look to reside in Nashville.
