Thump Records artist, Frenchy Valens, is back with another passionate latin inspired track, “Solita”. The song is supported by a sultry video clip showcasing Frenchy’s dance moves and signature style.
The visuals mark a stark contrast to where Frenchy started. When she was 18, she found herself financially distraught and ended up homeless the week prior to starting college. That marked a turning point in her life. Frenchy recalls the experience, “I realized then that maybe it wasn’t my destiny to be a high school teacher and I should pursue my real passion, music. It was time to give it a real shot, and honestly, I had nothing to lose”.
Early on, Frenchy embraced her multicultural heritage. Being Mexican, French, Spanish, and Native American allowed her to draw upon a wide variety of cultural and musical inspirations. As a teenager, she began writing music, taught herself to play guitar, and emulated some of her music idols. She credits Mexican-American singer Selena and English singer Kate Nash as her premier musical influences.
