Amy Sciarretto and Raw Fabrics' Jack B. Franco are cut from the same cloth! She likes leather jackets. He likes leather jackets. So they are pretty much perfect for each other. That is why we invited this Franco —not James, sorry, but Jack B. is just as rad— to Take Aim today.

If you were not doing music, you would be…
I would definitely want to be involved in something creative. I've always been a big fan of movies so probably something in the film industry.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I'm a big fan of taking selfies in the desert with a leather jacket on. (Seriously!) Besides that, maybe surfing or taking pictures with an oversized hat that covers my face. But mostly I'm always writing songs or making videos.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
When I was writing the song 'Gold Handcuffs,' I was going through a really stressful time period and I wanted to make that song a detailed story about things that were making me feel that way, including calling out family members. I can remember showing my family the song and giving the awkward look of 'Are you okay if I say this?'
Finish this sentence: Raw Fabrics is the artist that…
...mix jungle toms, loud guitars and animated gun shot samples into a chaotic live show that has no boundaries.
