“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”- Victor Hugo

It’s more than just ‘background incidental…’ – it should create a powerful emotional connection to the story. Music and sound have a tremendous ability to shape and define our experiences.

Franc Wyte

Franc Wyte is the collaborative effort of Justus Dobrin and Luqman Frank. Luq and Justus grew up in Oakland, CA and met in high school. They wrote together as teens and reconnected in 2010, bringing decades of writing and performing experience to their new project. Franc Wyte combines the gritty, blues-driven soul sounds of the 1960’s Stax Records catalog with their love of the golden age of hip-hop. Neo-vintage future funk meets East Bay Grease in a compelling, modern songwriting format; big swagger vocals and tight beats make for good time, get down music.
