“A little dark, a little weathered, a little unnerved, and definitely a little bit cynical.” – V13 review
“For My Own Health” is the most recent single from from David’s album, To The Unknown.
“Silver Arrow Sunday”, the second single from David’s album, To The Unknown, is a dark and strangely hopeful track that will take you to a rustic saloon in a dusty town hours from where you are.
In the first single from his upcoming album, To The Unknown, David Franz rips the band-aid off the wounds of personal growth with a garage pop revelation titled “My Greatest Enemy”.

From a combination of scorching life events, social transformation, pandemic lockdown, and personal epiphany, David Franz has emerged, like a snake too big for its skin, from behind the producer’s console to the front of the stage. Years of unlocking the creative genius of other artists as a co-writer, producer and record label head has led to the evolution and development of his own artist persona.
An examination of the heart of self and the subsequent emergence of a transfigured, healed whole, is strongly represented in the album’s artwork, created by frequent collaborator, Dustin Byerley, whose command of semiotics artfully complements the album’s ethos: a labyrinth meanders the seeker on a seemingly futile but ultimately purposeful path; the snake, the ultimate emblem of the desert, represents transformation, the shedding of the old, regeneration and rebirth, the miracles of the ancient world, and the real, sometimes sharp tooth of the new.
Be sure to check out my Spotify playlist entitled, aptly enough, “To The Unknown – Rock Revelations.” In it, I’ve included a variety of songs and sounds guaranteed to shake your soul, spanning both time and genre, from old school rock and roll to psych pop and beyond. Enjoy!
