Lingua Franca

Performing on: Saturday 1 September

Lingua Franca were the runner up in the Godiva Calling Indie category.

Lingua Franca - a language that is adopted as a common language between speakers whose native languages are different.

The band however is a Coventry/Nuneaton based, four piece rock/indie/funk band formed in 2017.

Lingua Franca bring a mixture of influences from the various members’ background in music.

The Soul/Mowtown influence of the singer - Louie Forde, the classic rock n’ roll vibe of the Guitarist - Rob Sampson, pop/punk/alternative heritage of the Bassist - Josh Cooper and the Jazz/Hard Rock inspired Drummer Lloyd Williams bring together a unique sound that's hard to pin down.

Having successfully won over the judges vote at the Godiva Calling and having given an interview on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire about their upcoming events; Lingua Franca are now hard at work recording their latest original material and touring nationwide to demonstrate their sound.
