With the help of three indie albums so far and a bunch of other compositions getting ready to be released later, emerging artist Frances Ancheta is bringing a new wave in the scene of tropical music
San Francisco, California – August 24th, 2021 – Up-and-coming artist Frances Ancheta is a true force to be reckoned with in the world of music. Excelling in a bunch of genres including Pop, Rock, and Indie, the artist is well-equipped and has what it takes to excel in the scene of music. She released her brand new album titled ‘Hidden Gems’ in early 2020, hoping for her developed and matured sound to reach places around the world.
The album was released last year after a long break in France’s musical career. Making a return in the music world, ‘Hidden Gems’ is her first album in 8.5 years. She started her musical journey a long time ago and has been in the industry for quite a while now. Garnering expertise in all sorts of genres and musical styles over the years, Frances Ancheta has gained considerate experience so far. Learning and adapting all this time, the talented artist has released a total of 3 albums to date. Her first album titled ‘Now We’re Here’ was released back in 2008. This was followed by her second album titled ‘Patterns’, released in 2011.
After 2 back to back albums, Frances Ancheta was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo treatment. Even during that time, Frances didn’t let go of her undying love and passion for music and kept making music in her free time. The album ‘Hidden Gems’ contains songs that were written and completed during her cancer treatment and recovery. Her survival of cancer helped her turn back to music as a way of healing, coping, staying well, and having renewed strength and confidence in herself and in her music.
Produced by Chris von Sneidern, the brand new album was recorded at the legendary Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco. The bass on the album is played by Gavin Jones, while Matt Sather and Bill Moya are on the drums. Originally planning to promote the album through live performances and regional touring of the West Coast and Hawaii, Frances had to turn towards social media and other online platforms due to the quarantine. Her music has garnered international independent and internet radio airplay in the US, Canada, UK, and Spain. As a creative arts therapist and cancer survivor, Frances definitely has experienced how music heals the soul, and she values music’s ability to help people understand the world around them, to connect with others, and to heal.
