Revisiting his testament to personal strength, Jamaican-born and Sheffield-based artist Franz Von, brings the world of live music to the comfort of your own home with a live studio version of his current single, ‘Power Be You’.
At a time of new year resolutions, fresh starts and fresh perspectives, Franz stares down the barrel of the camera to deliver his rallying call. Enriched with a vibrant live feel from start to finish, his passion and emotion takes centre stage as the band delivers a captivating performance.
‘Power Be You’ is a message of empowerment that encourages listeners to engage and embrace their inner strength whilst highlighting ongoing systemic oppression and the importance and power of homegrown communities and local networks to make a change.
His genre-bending sound is rooted in UK hip hop and infused with elements of dub, jazz and electronics as he follows in the footsteps of other UK Afrofuturist rappers like Little Simz and Kojey Radical with an unmistakable tone and flow reminiscent of UK hip hop pioneer Roots Manuva
Already enjoying support from BBC Introducing Sheffield and Amazing Radio who recently handed him a one-off show, the start of the year sees Franz Von gearing up for a follow-up single and EP scheduled for the Spring.
