Romeo and Juliet is timeless. However, in the 21rst century what often divides people is money. “Can’t Promise You” by Farco is a bedroom, surf pop song about a guy who is often turned down by materialistic women. Now, he’s asking someone to take a chance on him and overlook his economic status.
The song creates a catchy beat with guitar. Farco’s voice is wonderfully conversational and very welcoming to listen to. As the song goes on the beat continues to build with funky synths that I found myself instinctively swaying and head bopping to. The lyrics are lovely as he speaks directly to this woman saying, “I want you to be with me, but I can’t promise no double door, no penthouse suites, no rooftop floors.” The rhymes in this song are impeccable, catchy, and effortless, while the production ties it all together with a snappy beat. “Can’t Promise You” is the lead single on the upcoming album “My Last Debut,” a lockdown collaboration between Farco and Damien C.
Mark Diedrichsen aka “Farco” is a 25-year old music producer born and raised on the Jersey shore. He started making music as a teenager because all of his friends were rappers and needed beats. During his senior year of high school, Farco fell in love with electronic music and decided to begin DJ'ing. He has since opened for Ja Rule, Ashanti, Tory Lanez, Pauly D, Paris Hilton, Kirill Was Here, Dannic, andMike Stud. His six remixes on SoundCloud gained hundreds of thousands of plays and drew the support from The Chainsmokers, Two Friends, Justin Caruso, Milk n Cooks, Run The Trap, Smash The House, and many more.
Damian C. began playing guitar at the age of six, but it was not until the age of 19 when he enrolled in a song writing course at his alma mater. Damian soon made a name for himself and began securing live shows at iconic venues such as the famous New Jersey venue, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park as well as two slots in the SXSW Film and Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
