Music Bio: Fletcher
My full name is Franklin Fletcher Avant, but my stage name is “Fletcher”.
I am a songwriter/singer from Georgia. I started writing songs in the mid 80’s and my songs are about everyday working class themes. I have always enjoyed writing songs and now I have the opportunity to sing them. My musical beginnings started at an early age when my family would play and sing at different outings and gatherings. My musical artist influences would be Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. I always valued well written songs that told a story or message. My style of music, or genre, would be a combination of Outlaw Country/Country Christian/Rockabilly.
Finally, my bio would not be complete if I did not mention how the Lord has blessed me with words and music all of my life. He has given me the ability to write some great songs and I hope when people hear my songs they identify with them and hear the truth and sincerity behind them. I would hope that when people hear these songs that they would receive something they never had or find something that they have lost along the way. Great songs are what get us through life from day to day. I’ve always said, “The best sermon I ever heard was from the power of a song”.
