Watch his interview and you’ll understand: like all great blues musicians, Franco Paletta is a storyteller.With captivating, good-natured charisma, Paletta told us about his musical journey, beginning in the late ‘80s when he picked up a harmonica to impress the ladies and tagged along with the original members of The Stingers. After one fateful night in a place called “The Peanut Farm,” he was invited to join the band and sing for them.
“I had never had any intentions of singing,” Paletta told us. “But it ended up being that I sang better than I played harmonica.” Now, he’s the frontman of Franco Paletta and the Stingers, a band that’s gotten airplay from deejays around the country.
But no one tells this story as well as Paletta himself, so be sure to check out the interview. You can find his music on iTunes, cdbaby.com, and francopalettaandthestingers.com. The most recent album is only available as a physical copy right now, so be sure to check out a live show, too!
