FRANC O'SHEA Composer/Bass Guitar/Composer

Franc was born of Irish, English and Spanish blood in Swaziland, Africa. He was influenced by the sounds of the native’s songs and drumming as his mother would take him to tribal gatherings. After living in Indonesia for two years he moved to England when he was 6 and took up the bass guitar at the age of 12. His open spirit led him to discover a love for all types of music including Jazz, Flamenco, Funk, Irish Folk, African, Rock and Classical.

He was a founding member of the Brazilian dance combo BATU in 1992. Their first single ‘Seasons of my mind’ which they recorded in Paris became a world wide club and radio hit.

Their last recording was for Island Records on their ‘Rebirth of Cool’ series....
