Lester Franco is a singer/songwriter and performer of
Mexican/Italian descent and currently based in London.
His musical career began as a guitarist for Latin- American artists
and performing in countries such as the US, Mexico, Ecuador & Cuba.
After studying music production in California and Italy,
he then went on to become the Junior A&R for Warner Music Mexico & Latin America.
At the same time, he founded his own entertainment company “Mad Grand”
and he built his recording studio “The Hangout Studio”.
He went on to produce other artists and released his debut album
as a solo artist; “The Legba Sessions”.
His follow up album “Lowdowns, Whiskey & Live”
was recorded during his first ever live show as Lester Franco.
Something no artist has dared to do before.
His band Lester Franco & Her Majesty’s Secret Service performed
several shows around Mexico and became the official act for
Starbucks Mexico before he established in the UK.
Lester’s music is a mix of rock, pop, blues and jazz
with a latin soul which makes his sound unique, nostalgic and powerful.
His live shows are an experience and every one is different from one another.
Incorporating fire, aerial, contortion, burlesque and theatrics
while playing either with an 11 piece band, a big band, or a 4 piece band,
he has mastered the live stage and has caught the attention of the public
as well as the press with his unusual shows and exotic performances.
Lester has just released his version of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” along with his own
song “Help” which was produced by Morrissey’s musical director; Boz Boorer.
Lester Franco is currently working on his new full-length studio album
and will begin his 2020 “Horses in Transit” tour.
