"The Family Reviews" has reviewed The Wait

"The Family Reviews" has reviewed The Wait

The Family Reviews has reviewed Franco Esteve's The Wait classical music single
This image is a compilation of elements from The Family Reviews review pageand its artwork for their review of The Wait


The Family Reviews is a really cool concept where a family reviews music. Are they music professionals or journalists? Are they particularly qualified? No and no, but they don't claim to be. I love their concept because it's folksy, straightforward, and because it's like an instant focus group of regular folks who live in different parts of the world and have very different musical tastes.

They've now reviewed my single, The Wait (though the "Mom" ended up listening to my whole repertoire and commenting on that instead, and the "Dad" didn't review this time around). I knew they wouldn't all find it to their liking, especially since it's not a genre that's commonly all that popular, but I also knew they would express how it made them feel. I couldn't be more satisfied with that.

Though the music wasn't their cup of tea, the consensus is that it felt cinematic, telling a story, and that it communicated the feeling of waiting. What else could an artist ask for but for their listers to feel what they wanted them to?

Read the review here.

As my patrons on Patreon and my fans already know, I've often struggled with insomnia and The Wait is meant to, in a beautiful way, reflect that struggle, that waiting, that unresolved sleep. I'm glad that it captured that, even in people who are not into the genre or style of music.

Thank you The Family Reviews, and thank you to all the fans and especially to my patrons who support all my work, especially when they might not enjoy a particular piece of music or art I've created. Thank you! :)

Support Franco Esteve on Patreon https://patreon.com/FrancoEsteve
Get rewards, behind-the-scenes content, access to the process, and more when you become my royal patron on Patreon! Keep independent music, film, and art independent!



Like other artists, I've joined Patreon, the service that allows you to be a royal patron of old and support independent artists like myself through crowd-funding and micro-payments. Patreon allows you to participate in the great tradition of the royal patrons of old. I'm your Beethoven, your Da Vinci. Ok, not even close, but I'm your artist, and you'll join me in my journey of creation, getting access to my creative craziness, drafts, art, photos, films, and music, lots of music.

Producing music, films, and art costs all kinds of money, from equipment to software to food and people. You can participate. You can be part of the process. You can be the fuel that feeds the artist! You'll feed my creativity by freeing me to create


What do you get when you become my royal patron?

  1. You get to feel good because you ARE a royal patron of old, sponsoring an artist's work.
  2. Access to the process: Drafts and previews of writings, films, unedited content, sheet music, recordings, photos, art, etc.
  3. Content: Early access to final content, patron exclusive content, behind the scenes, and all kinds of extras
  4. Access to the artist: Access to me, to how I do it, to where it comes from, etc.
  5. Participation: You get to participate in the process as I include you in my journey of creation. You get to hear from me directly, and will be able to interact with me and my work.
  6. You get to free the artist to create. Costs go way beyond cost of living to include audio engineers, equipment, instruments, software, all kinds of hardware, way too many hard drives, cameras, crew, actors, food, film festivals, production, etc., etc., etc., so your patronage frees me to dedicate myself to my arts.
What are you waiting for? Starting with a single dollar, you already get loads, and you keep independent artists independent. :) Click here and become my patron right now: https://patreon.com/FrancoEsteve

New-age Music Single Release: Siurana Spell

Siurana Spell is a new-age, single music release, originally created for the Mallorca 360 project's relaxing, 360º VR, Siurana Canal video, which you can watch and experience on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/7c00mddjprY or on VeeR here: http://veer.tv/videos/125623 or on their website here: https://www.mallorca360.es It's available now on CDBaby and soon on your favorite online music stores and streaming services.The song will also also be available later this year, along other songs created for the Mallorca 360 project, in a dedicated soundtrack album release. 



About the song


Siurana Spell is both meditative and relaxing while simultaneously evoking some classic, romantic themes I created. It was written specifically for Mallorca 360’s 360-degree, virtual reality video of the Siurana Canal in Muro, Mallorca, Spain, where you can relax and contemplate the canal’s beauty, virtually standing on the dock next to it. It transports you beyond the canal, and romantically lifts you to a loving and relaxing space.

Listen to it in the embedded player below or using the video links above:



or on Spotify using this player here or the link below:


I hope y'all enjoy this release and all my music. Thank you all for your continuing encouragement and support, and for all the wonderful messages. Stay tuned, there's much more to come. :)
