Album Notes
Franklin’s Wheel creates music that takes you on a journey through various moods, sounds and textures; from soothing ambiance to dynamic crescendos and percussive, upbeat grooves. The music created by Franklin's Wheel is filtered through influences that include Santana, Billy Joel, Steely Dan, Weather Report, and Miles Davis.

Franklin’s Wheel is a jazz/rock fusion jam band from Miami, FL, featuring Juan Gil on vocals, Mike Matthews on guitar, Brian Smith on keyboard, Axel Aleman on bass, Robert Barcelo on drums, and Rey "Conga" Diaz on percussion. The band was born out of a desire to explore jazz/rock fusion in a contemporary alternative rock/jam band format that pays homage to the rootsy fusion sound of the 1970s. The band members are all seasoned veterans of the South Florida music scene and beyond, and bring their diverse influences together in a unique blend of styles.

"Now" is the first full-length release from the band. Recorded and mixed from July, 2011 through June, 2012 by Ferny Coipel at The Shack, in Hialeah, FL, "Now" features the band's original tunes as well as their own version of the standard "Summertime". Over a year in the making, this album shows the musicality with which Franklin's Wheel is quickly making a name for themselves.
