Francisco Martin is an LA-based Filipino American singer-songwriter and producer from San Francisco, California. Not too long ago, he released a dreamy indie-pop single, titled, “Passenger Princess,” a lullaby for the long-distance driver.

‘Passenger Princess’ pays homage to the viral internet trend of women who don’t drive but get driven every day to places of their choosing. The song reveals a softer and more sensitive side of Francisco Martin, who takes pleasure and happiness in being with his significant other as she lets her hair down in his fast-moving vehicle as they cruise down the Pacific Coast Highway past cinematic landscapes of sunsets. Furthermore, “Passenger Princess” is a tapestry of TikTok that includes aesthetic hedonism and mesmerizing melodies that make you want to go for a drive just because. The lyricism takes pages out of the Urban Dictionary, making a meme into music.

‘Passenger Princess’ contains a relatable, love-based narrative, smooth falsetto vocals, and ear-pleasing melodies that will resonate well with music lovers worldwide. The soulful, vibrant, and electric new single possesses saturated drums and bass-laden instrumentation flavored with a sunshiny indie-pop vibration. Also, “Passenger Princess” follows mildly on the heels of Francisco Martin’s breakthrough EP, “Manic,” which contains conversations about mental health, relationships, angst, and human disconnection.

“‘Passenger Princess’ brings timely joy to the table when you didn’t ask for it. Its free, radical-like soundscape and subtle pull for attention bridges the gap between my influences of indie-rock and soul.” – Francisco Martin stated

Francisco Martin was born into a musically fertile household. Self-taught as a child, he mastered drums, guitar, piano, and several other instruments, taking his talent to local stages while playing with musicians several years his senior. Later, he earned the title ‘writer-producer’ as he began to dabble in poetry and experiment with SoundCloud, where he amassed a following for his original renditions of favorite covers.

Francisco later shot to fame with American Idol season 18 in 2020, where he placed Top 5. From there, he quickly released a few singles before embarking on a fall coast-to-coast tour. His heart-on-sleeve soulful pop has garnered favorable comparisons to songwriter artists such as James Bay, John Mayer, Maggie Rogers, and Ed Sheeran. To date, Francisco has released several hit singles, including “Swollen,” which has amassed close to eight million streams across all DSPs (with six million on Spotify).
