Francis Cang

Francis Cang is a solo guitarist based in Cagayan de Oro City. He produces provocative instrumental music – continuously challenging himself to make music as good as the music he enjoys listening to. 
Like many guitar enthusiasts, Cang was enamoured early on by heavy metal sounds and guitar virtuosos such as Paul Gilbert and Greg Howe. More recently, he leans towards new school players like Chris Buck and Matt Schofield.
In 2020, under the name Obsolete. Cang explored ambient soundscapes with dark, cinematic undertones with a trilogy of single releases spanning November 2020 to January 2021.
In 2021, Francis returns to his instrumental guitar roots but also drawing a lot of inspiration from math rock acts like Totorro and tide / edit. New music coming soon!
