Fran is an American indie rock band from Chicago, Illinois. Frontwoman Maria Jacobson grew up interested in musical theater, however, became “fed up” with it while attending college. While in college, Jacobson purchased a guitar for herself to learn how to play while working at a repertory theater. After graduating from college, Jacobson moved to Mexico where she taught English. While in Mexico, Jacobson began writing music. Upon returning home from her career in Mexico, Jacobson decided to start a band.
Maria Jacobson (vocals)
Mike Altergott (guitar)
Atticus Lazenby (bassist-keyboardist)
Raul Cotaquispe (drums)
Discography: 1 studio album (2019) and one EP (2017); it also looks like she performed a song, “Just One Look,” on the soundtrack of the 2020 movie, “The Trial of the Chicago 7”
One thing to share:
She’s from Chicago, IL. Not a lot of information out there on them (yet!) I love Jacobson’s voice, her lyrics, the way Altergott plays (he’s got perfect minimalist flourishes,) and the organic drumming of Cotaquispe.
