Born in 1996, Francisse Elaine Bondoc grew up as an only child to two very supportives and hardworking traditional Filipino parents. Moving to America when she was only seven months old was the game changer for her and her new found opportunities. Constantly moving, music was the only thing that was consistent in her life. Growing up, her mother listened to Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston while her father listened to Journey, The Bee Gees, and Frank Sinatra. Listening to a wide variation in genre impacts her voice and live performances.
Heavily influenced by P!nk and Celine Dion, her smokey and unforgiving belt and performance catches audience attention winning the title of Grand Champion of a Filipino contest called Tawag Ng Tanghalan in 2004. She, then, lands an appearance on America’s Got Talent Season 2 in 2006. She has performed in venues like The Orpheum Theater and as an opening act to filipino artists like Lani Misalucha, Sarah Geronimo, and Martin Nievera. She’s also performed at venues like BB King’s Blues Club, Genghis Cohen, and the Catalina Jazz Club. Breaking her own boundaries, she composes songs that advocates to the alternative indie pop genre which leads her to create raw and enticing melodic songs that connects with personal experiences about love and life. Her search to find the right words in her songwriting to express just the right amount of longing and ruefulness draws her audience to keep coming back for more. She continues to illuminate the idea that falling in love with yourself is okay to do and that no one deserves happiness more than yourself.
After graduating with an Associates in Music Production & Sound Design at the Academy of Art University, she is currently attending college at Los Angeles School of Music to pursue a Bachelor in Music for Songwriting.
