Lester Franco is a Mexican / Italian singer/songwriter and performer currently based in London.
His background in music goes back a long time when he began working as a guitar for Latin- American artists and performing in countries like the US, Ecuador, Cuba, and many more.
After studying music in California and Italy, he then went on to become the Junior A&R for Warner Music Mexico making Grammy award winning albums and learning the music business. At the same time, he founded his own record label “Mad Grand” and he built his own recording studio “The Hangout”, where he’s produced several albums for different artists as well as his own musical productions.
“The Legba Sessions” was his first studio album released in 2013 followed by his live album “Lowdowns, Whiskey & Live”. He’s currently working on his third musical production and still producing other artists.
His band Lester Franco & Her Majesty’s Secret Service performed many shows around Mexico and became the official act for Starbucks Mexico.
His live shows are an experience and every one is different from the other. Collaborating with fire, aerial, contortion, burlesque and belly dancers and playing either with an 11 piece band, big band, or a 4 piece blues-rock band, he has mastered the stage to the point that he knows what kind of show the audience is asking for.
Lester Franco offers different types of shows. Whether is an acoustic show with just him on piano, guitar and vocals for a more intimate scenario or a blues/rock show with a band backing him or a full big band show.
His big band show includes an extended repertoire of cover songs from various genres. From swing, latin, bolero, soul, blues, jazz, rock and pop and all with original arrangements.
He’s currently recording his new musical production, producing other artists as well as performing live across the UK and Europe.
