Hailing from the Northwoods of Wisconsin his Ojibwe ancestors have called home for millennia, singer/songwriter Paco Fralick has always had a foot in two worlds, both personally and musically. His eclectic sound reflects his varied influences, blending notes of country, folk, pop, and Native Americana with original and authentic lyrics that speak to his life experiences and the healing messages he hopes to share with the world. His first studio album, Letting Go (2017) garnered critical acclaim, including a Native American Music Award for Song of the Year (“Women and Water”) which he co-wrote with Michael Bucher and a Global Music Award for Best Breakthrough Artist.
Paco’s love of music began early in his youth, nurtured through a combination of classical piano lessons and nights spent listening to his father practicing with an old reel-to-reel recorder. As a teenager, that love grew into a desire to create his own songs, but running a business and raising a family kept him from giving music his full attention until 2014. Since then, he has performed regionally throughout the Midwest, most notably at Indian Summerfest in Milwaukee where he won five awards between 2017 and 2018 for his album Letting Go.
Paco is currently working on his second and third studio albums which he hopes to release in 2021. The new music highlights his growth as a singer/songwriter, a musician and producer while continuing his style of captivating lyrics and unique musical arrangements that touch on aspects of life. His music is very real.
