Press Reviews:

"Local one-man band Franzman does 11 tracks of acoustic-based, full-group folk with a bit of a groove to it. That puts it a hair above the folksinger/songwriter throngs. Franzman writes personal, perceptive lyrics… "The Last One" is a fine pop tune. "Blow out the Candle" is a very pretty song. Good release."

"Don't let the title “mf” fool you; New Haven's Franzman, a longtime local singer/songwriter fixture, is a nice guy, which makes his use of such a choice angry word in "Some Sunny Day" a little hard to swallow. But that's a nitpick. This collection is worth a listen."
