Backed by his talented 5-piece band, Franz Von delivers a captivating performance full of passion and emotion. ‘Power Be You‘ is a message of empowerment that encourages listeners to engage and embrace their inner strength whilst highlighting ongoing systemic oppression and the importance and power of homegrown communities and local networks to make change.
His genre-bending sound is rooted in UK hip hop and infused with elements of diaspora, jazz, and electronics as he follows in the footsteps of other UK Afrofuturist rappers like Little Simz and Kojey Radical with an unmistakable tone and flow reminiscent of UK hip hop pioneer Roots Manuva.
