Franck Carducci, a multi-instrumentalist (bass, piano, guitar, drums, etc.) rose in a family where music is a way of life.
Franck produced his first melody on the keyboard of an organ at age 5.
He'll always remain attached to this instrument, specifically the Hammond B3.
He proceeds to learn the guitar - mastering Chuck Berry's ‘Rock 'n' Roll’ by age 11.
At 14, Franck discovers The Beatles and joins his first rock band.
He literally "falls into" Pink-Floyd after attending a concert at age 15.
Little by little, he strives towards a music that, while still being accessible, is also structurally more complex with different atmospheres.
The discovery of "Genesis" at age 17 embedded progressive rock into his heart and his soul.
This experience came to define his passion for a music that's both very rock and very atmospheric or psychedelic.
That's when he purchased his first 12 string guitar, an instrument of which he is quite fond.
As Franck’s musical life progressed, he took the opportunity to learn both the bass and drums providing an in depth understanding of the various instruments involved in a classic rock band.
The culmination of those experiences gives him the ability to create the various arrangements to the songs he has created.
Franck Carducci doesn't have or need a primary instrument. He is usually found playing bass in various bands because it is, according to Franck, ‘the most interesting instrument within a band, linking rhythm and melodies’.
Between the ages of 20 and 30, he'll play with upwards of 20 different bands whose genres range from folk-song to rock via funk, blues or country-music. During this time, Franck was involved in the recording of 15 different albums. Two of these found him paired with French female folk singer Yanne Matis with whom he toured with throughout Europe. This tour saw Franck opening for musicians such as Murray Head, Bill Wyman, and Albert Lee.
In 2008, Franck moves to Amsterdam where he gets into the local scene and performs regularly in the famous clubs of the city. He participates in several bands with styles varying between funk, soul, pop and rock music.
Then in 2010, a dream comes true: Franck opens a gig for one of his heroes, Steve Hackett (Genesis).
Steve watches the concert from backstage and would come to congratulate Franck in the dressing-room before going onstage himself.
Some days later, a discussion with Steve will convince Franck to focus on producing his own solo album.
The goal - to produce an album accurate, of his own, without concessions but being sincere.
And there was ODDITY...
