When Franc Aledia released his self-titled debut album to an audience of thirty or so in a small pub on the east side of Columbus, Ohio, no one there, including himself, could have imagined that just two years later his next album would be released on the LATE SHOW with David Letterman to a world wide audience.
Franc Aledia is a singer/songwriter, music producer and multi-instrumentalist. He co-wrote and sang on the concept album "SHELTER IN PLACE" by Michael James (Alternator Records) which received 2022 GRAMMY Consideration by the Recording Academy for Immersive Record Of The Year and also starred in the Short Film "SAVE ME TONIGHT" featuring music from that album. The film’s concept was created by Aledia and the film’s Director, Sonoma Film Festival award-winning director, Alan Farst.
2020 was a leap year. So Aledia decided to take a giant leap. During the pandemic he wrote, recorded and released a song a day, every single day on Soundcloud. Three hundred and thirty six songs in three hundred and thirty six days! #366in366
As the lead singer and co-writer/producer of the Los Angeles-based BRACK, he achieved international success when their album, "GREATEST HITS VOLUME I" was released on the LATE SHOW with David Letterman to a world wide audience. The band featured Indianapolis 500 winner and X Games gold medalist, Kenny Brack.
The single from that album, "LEGEND OF THE SPEEDWAY" was co-written by Aledia and Brack for racing legend, A.J. Foyt. The song was used by the Indy Racing League (IRL) as the soundtrack to the 91st running of the Indianapolis 500 and a tribute honoring A.J. Foyt’s 50 years of open wheel racing. It was the only other song other than Gene Simmons’ “I AM INDY” that was endorsed by the IRL and the Indy 500. The video for the song made both music and racing history and was featured on ABC, ESPN and SpeedTV.
Aledia appeared with Brack in the Indy 500 Festival parade with Gene Simmons, Peyton Manning, Ludacris, Patrick Dempsey and Danica Patrick and co-headlined the Indy 500 live music concert lineup with Daughtry, Kid Rock and Saliva performing in front of 55,000+ people and a worldwide television audience.
