Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Tommy Francisco : My taste in music varies so much based on my emotions/mood so I couldnt say I have just one favorite genre. Sometimes it can be rock for months at a time or even reggae. Sometimes it can be classical, for it’s purity. Maybe Techno/house for the excitement and thrill. Country for love, heartbreak, storytelling, and goofy essence or Alternative, r&b, pop, hip hop, I could go on and on.
