Just four years ago, Franny took a leap of faith when she packed up her bags and left New Jersey to move to the big, city lights of Los Angeles, California. Although she wasn’t sure just yet of what she wanted to do, she soon realized that she was destined to be a star! The young music sensation first caught our attention on YouTube but soon after releasing music, her fans began to love her even more. We dug deep into our conversation with Franny to learn more about her passion for music, her beauty must-have, and upcoming projects!
Tell us about yourself.
Well, I am an up-and-coming music artist who started her journey in Los Angeles almost four years ago. I moved here from New Jersey with a dream of doing something out here. I knew I wanted to do something big but I wasn’t quite sure what it was. I’ve always been really creative with music, makeup, and fashion so I always felt like it was going to be something along those lines. Music has always been a passion of mine. I used to perform at carnivals, festivals, and talent shows when I was younger. Because I came from such a small town, I never really thought it was possible. I ended up moving to Los Angeles and after a couple of years of living here, I ended up moving into a house with some YouTubers and that’s kind of where my YouTube career took off! YouTube was never really the goal but it stumbled into my hands so I kind of rolled with it. Now, I’m using the platform that I have to break out as a music artist. It’s honestly my dream, that’s what I’m really passionate about.
Can you tell us about the music you began putting out? When did you know that music was what you wanted to pursue in life?
I honestly really saw the opportunity probably two years ago. Like I said, music has always been a passion of mine since I was very little. About two years ago, I was around so many creative people, my friends were acting and working on music, I asked myself, “Why am I not pursuing my dreams when everyone else is?”
In addition to all that you do, you also share beauty and lifestyle videos on YouTube. How did you work up the courage to share your life with the world in this way?
It’s really funny because that’s kind of how my YouTube started. I started off with beauty videos because I’ve always had a big passion for makeup as well. When I was younger, I would watch beauty videos from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed. I felt like I learned a lot about makeup just in general through those videos. My friends encouraged me to share videos but I never really looked at it as sharing my life in a scary way. To me, I was excited to share my life with others. It was never really a scary thing for me.
SHEEN Magazine is the Ultimate Beauty Guide. Can you share with us your holy grail beauty product?
My holy grail beauty product would definitely be mascara. I think having bold lashes on just makes a difference. I use the L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. It’s my absolute favorite.
Are there any upcoming projects you could give us insight into?
I will be releasing music very soon and I might be having a few performances soon as well. That’s really all I can share right now (laughs).
