In the last few years, he has shared the stage with the likes of The Eli Young Band, Rhett Miller (Old 97s), Dan Baird of the Georgia Satellites, Walter Salas Humara (Silos), Chris Knight, Adam Carroll, Cris Jacobs, Cory Branan, Austin Lucas and many others. In 2016, Franco released The Last Card, an album Paste Magazine hails as possibly the most sincere album of the year. No Depression’s Emily Hinde called The Last Card “a phenomenal sophomore record.” She listed the record No. 2 on her list of the best of 2016, which also included releases from The Avett Brothers, Sara Watkins, Drive By Truckers, Sturgill Simpson and more. Paulo ended 2016 with a tour of Colombia, South America.
Drawing their name from the legendary song by Townes Van Zandt, the Freightliners are Paulo's backing band. They are Jimmy Slagle - Lead Guitar and Vocals, Dave Hess - Drums and Vocals, Doug Thompson – Bass. They bring intensity to each performance, utilizing blistering guitar solos and crisp vocal harmonies. They provide the accompaniment and groove to Paulo's original music, bringing a fresh and unique interpretation to the songs you hear on the albums. The band floats easily between the differing genres that weave together to form the tapestry of Paulo's sound. The Freightliners are a band that find themselves at home as a country, rock, alt+country or blues outfit.
