Franklin Telescope was formed back in the spring of 2014. The band was named after the Benjamin Franklin Centre in The Chinese University of Hong Kong - the place where we began. We were originally inspired by bands with different styles; soon after that, funk, soul, and jazz also came to be our muse. By playing groovy, funky & soulful music, we express all sorts of happy-sad things happened in our life. Previously, we have participated in performances including Jockey Club Street Music Series - Music Marathon and Hidden Agenda - mi mi forever; currently, we are preparing the recording of a new single with Jockey Club Street Music Series.
Franklin Telescope is Hong Kong-based. Formed in 2014. Current band members joined in 2016.

The band’s music is characterized by Acid-jazz, Jazz, Neo-soul, and Funk.
