Singer/Songwriter/Teacher Rhea Francani is a finessed recording artist who blends classic country with bluegrass, pop and rock sounds to create a distinctive country brand of music, style and fun.
“Although I grew up in Buffalo, I’m drawn to the southern charm of country music’s heartfelt lyrics – songs about love, life and good times,” says Rhea Francani. “I bring a bit of the city to the country.”
Currently a Performing Arts Teacher at the renowned Florida Atlantic University in South Florida, Rhea earned her master’s degree in Music & Music Education from Columbia University in New York City. She moved to the country music capital of Nashville to co-produce her self-penned 12-track debut album “Now or Never.”
Rhea continues to write and perform, further establishing herself as a singer, songwriter, recording artist and producer. She opened for the sold out WYRK Acoustic Show featuring Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Big & Rich; performed on many radio stations; and headlined her own showcase at City Winery in Nashville.
She also developed a performing arts program for middle school students, delighting in mentoring students while also crafting her own music. In fact, Rhea’s students selected the first song to be released from her new album.
