Fast Five: Franka De Mille



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I have always made music and written songs since I was a kid but never took it seriously until recently. I considered many careers from film-making to being a psychoanalyst.

How would you describe your music?

Acoustic Americana with a twist of chamber-pop.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I have been promoting my debut album ‘Bridge The Roads’. I will be releasing two more singles in the UK, then I will be working on my second album.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

I would love to do a duet with Sting. I was really into The Police and I’ve always wanted to meet him. He is a great songwriter and I think the timbre of our voices would work well together.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

I would be so miserable on my own on a desert island with one record! It’s a difficult choice… It would have to be The Love for Three Oranges by Sergei Prokofiev. I love this piece. It is musically challenging and original. The story is really crazy and entertaining.
