Meet Frannk Whitte, or as he’s known in his hometown of São Paulo, Francisco Castello Branco. Whitte, a multitalented 20-year old from Brazil, has been making waves in the music world through his sensual blend of genres and passionate lyrics. With authentic music that touches listeners around the globe, this rising star is preparing to carve his name into the industry’s stone.
Whitte’s journey into the realm of music kicked off when he picked up his first drum sticks at the tender age of 8. A spark of passion was ignited during his initial drum lessons which he carried along into his early teenage years. The transformative period came when he started weaving words into soulful rhythms with his best friend at 16. The friends collaborated, released tracks, started gigs, and turned their dreams into slow-building realities. Now, Whitte is utilizing the spotlight of Los Angeles as a platform to catapult his name onto the global stage.
One of Whitte’s most recent pieces of work, ‘Never Safe,’ is a battle-trimmed anthem for UFC Fighter Mateus Bocao. Released on October 4th, 2023, the track encapsulates a four-minute adrenaline rush with Whitte’s signature intensity. The powerful beat ensures listeners are geared up for a workout or raring to take on the world.
Adding more heat to an already blazing fire, Whitte’s new track, ‘Blame’ is set to feature Dagrace and will be out on October 5th. Simultaneously, Whitte is preparing to appear on the pilot episode of the Brazilian counterpart of ‘Tiny Desk,’ known as ‘Som no Sebo.’ It seems Whitte is juggling multiple entertainment spheres with impressive dexterity.
Despite the whirlwind journey from São Paulo to Los Angeles, Whitte hasn’t stopped working on new creations. A new EP is currently under development, promising more of Whitte’s genre-defying sound. His work, inspired by the likes of the soulful Amy Whinehouse, eclectic Mac Miller, dynamic 2strange, and soothing Tom Misch, does not conform to any ‘genre.’
