Rising Stars: Meet Francis Wood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Francis Wood

Francis, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I was born in Miami & raised in Miramar. Growing up, Sesame Street was one of my favorite show. The reason why it was always the best for me because of the musician episodes. In fifth grade, the instrument I played was percussion. Hearing the sounds from a drum just made me love music notes, melodies, instrumentals etc. Fast forward to six grade. I tried out a trombone. I was literally in love with the bass clef. Suddenly I was too small to play the instrument because of my arm’s reach. I got moved to a baritone weeks after. In ninth grade, I had triumph on my mind, but it was difficult for me at the time, so I stopped playing it. My struggle made me get this far. Being homeless, sleeping in a usual truck, kicked out of apartments, motels, hotels, & being scammed out of a house-made me embrace music. I had times I was fighting depression & music is the only thing I can vent to. It was always soothing to me when I can record my feelings on the microphone.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m an artist, not only an artist, I have my own clothing line & I’m vegan. I knew for my music & me being a Rasta. The thing I’m most proud of is my craft & struggle. The fact that I’m vegan & a farmer set me apart from others.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I like how it’s peaceful with the land & I dislike the long drives & far destinations.
