Bandsman

Bandsman is the artist name of Fernando Zaplana, an eclectic songwriter, guitarist and composer with creative musical ideas and pop arrangements to service both TV & Films.

Born in Cartagena, Spain, Fernando is primarily a songwriter, with well over 100 composed songs in several styles including jazz, classic, bossa-nova, lounge, symphonic, disco, pop, latin, electronic, rock, blues and much more. Although his main influence is Jazz, his music exudes all his genetic Mediterranean influences.

As Bandsman, Fernando has performed at a great many Jazz gigs in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Ibiza, highlighting with his participation in the “2000 Injuve International Jazz Festival” in Ibiza, with No Tan Big Band.

“Autumn..s Prelude CD contains true chill-jazz jewels with bossa influences” (Future Music Magazine. February 2008 spanish issue.)

“As with any great composer and the demands placed on them, Fernando has been able to adapt freely to just about any style or genre. Much of his work is indeed merely classified as music for films.

His current Bandsman CD “AUTUMN'S PRELUDE” has a great many mood and emotions that emulate from each track. It is certainly music that will be heard and enjoyed by all age group. And music worthy of gracing the soundtrack credits in any motion picture”
