Each song that Francesca Panetta writes is laced with unapologetic authenticity. Leveraging self-reflection in her songwriting, the Toronto-born musician translates her own personal experiences into compelling lyrics that everyone can find comfort in. On her debut EP When the Sunshine Rains, Francesca aligns nostalgic moments with sweet melodies and passion.

Francesca began dabbling in singing and playing instruments at a young age and found an early love for writing music. Valuing the subtle nuances in life, Francesca allows for her creativity to flow constantly, not hesitating to stop in the middle of her day when inspiration strikes. Panetta has remained dedicated to her craft, contributing to the local music scene with memorable performances at music festivals, Canada’s Wonderland, and on the streets of downtown Toronto.

So Few Words (love letter) represents Francesca’s latest release. Written exclusively by her, Panetta invites her listeners to join her as she navigates the intricacies of life. Francesca’s biggest goal is to create music that people can relate to, yet still give them the chance to find their own meaning in her songs.
