From around the age of nine through high school she resided in northern Illinois. It was rural in many ways, but close enough to cities like Chicago and Madison to be exposed to great music. Attending music festivals and concerts with her mother and siblings, seeing artists such as BB King, Lonnie Brooks, Buddy Guy, Little Richard and The Smashing Pumpkins to name a few, was a regular part of life growing up.
After graduating from high school, she attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. After only two semesters she realized the east coast was not the right fit, so she took a Greyhound bus back to Chicago. It wasn't long before she would finally return to California, but this time on her own as an adult residing in Los Angeles. Francesca still resides in Los Angeles where she continues to make music.
