Paulo Franco is a Richmond based singer/songwriter.  He was recently named a finalist in the Southeast region of the Mountain Stage NewSong songwriting contest.  He was the only Virginia songwriter so selected in 2012. His backing band are the Rateros. They play a unique blend of rock, old school country, alt-country and blues. The music draws heavily from influences like Steve Earle, the Gram Parsons inspired music of the Rolling Stones, and The Grateful Dead.  Paulo has been a musician most of his life, but only until recently was bit by the songwriting bug, which he started in earnest in 2010.  His songs tell tales of love and loss, and are featured on his first solo album, By the Light of a Paper Moon.
