Franchot Tone’s New Video is on Fire!

It takes a certain, quiet strength to work in the shadows, and an entirely different kind of fortitude to step into the light. Franchot Tone is blessed with all of the above. The Oregon-based singer/songwriter/producer isn't a household name, thanks to his decidedly behind-the-scenes work on some of the coolest musical projects to emerge from the West Coast in recent years.

The video for "Everything's Fine" was shot in Southern California and Bend, OR. "In SoCal we shot in Topanga, Joshua tree and Malibu.

In it's first week it has garnered 400,000 views." - Franchot Tone
