ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/songwriter Steven Franz was born and raised in Miami, Florida. A self-taught pianist, Steven began writing songs in high school. He graduated from New World School of the Arts and was awarded a performance scholarship to attend Boston's Berklee College of Music. After a brief stint in Boston, Steven decided to head back to Florida.

Steven continued to pursue his passion for music while studying business at the University of Florida. After graduating, Steven moved to Atlanta, Georgia for an internship and to perform and record with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Choir under the direction of Robert Shaw. Steven recorded on the ASOC's Grammy nominated, "Grand & Glorious Great Operatic Choruses" album.

Steven then returned to Miami to start his business career, landing a two-year position as Assistant Business Manager for recording artist Julio Iglesias. "When I started making money, the first thing I did was buy a Roland JV1000 Music Workstation and a grand piano." Steven began writing and performing original songs with local band West 40 Terrain. He also began to learn guitar to open up new creative avenues. "It was a tremendous growth period for me, learning to work with a band, recording for the first time, and strengthening my live performance and writing abilities."

Steven's first solo album, "The One You Choose", is a collection of original songs dealing with self awareness, relationships, and doubling one's wardrobe. He self-produced the CD, arranging and programming all tracks.

Steven currently resides in Seattle with his partner Rick. They were one of the first same-sex couples to marry in Massachusetts in 2004.

James Chappelle

A breakaway from the dull & tedious. Refreshingly new!
The One You Choose is a powerful mixture of poetry and smooth rhythms. Honest and funny in it's language while at the same time it addresses what it is like to be growing up gay in America today. But this is not simply a gay album, though the artist is, his music is universal and speaks to everyone. A can't miss buy!

AWESOME!
This CD is deep. Not only is the music good, the lyrics are as if he were inside my head making poetry of my feelings. A truly moving compilation of songs, buy two CDs because you'll play it so often, you might wear one out.

This CD is amazing; it has Layers of excellence.
I'm VERY impressed with this CD. This is not just some nice pleasing folk/rock CD, it has Layers of excellence. To think this is a debut CD is just amazing, and that it is self-produced even more so.
