MAKING HER AUSTRALIAN DEBUT AT SYDNEY’S PADDINGTON UNITING CHURCH THIS JUNE
Frontier Touring are delighted to introduce Frances - the English songstress and pianist will make her Australian debut this June, performing a very special one-off concert at Sydney’s Paddington Uniting Church.
‘Remember her name, you’ll be seeing and hearing it everywhere very soon’ – MTV
‘With her gorgeous tracks, charming modesty and superstar connections, there’s little doubt of her high-flying trajectory’ – V Magazine
‘This young artist has to be one of the best vocalists we’ve been introduced to this year’ – Earmilk
This performance is set to be both visually and sonically spectacular, taking place in Sydney’s architecturally stunning Paddington Uniting Church on Thursday 16 June.
Frances’ piano ballad ‘Grow’ became one of the most cherished slow burners of 2015 with 1.5 million streams across SoundCloud, YouTube and Spotify.
Now, with two EPs, an acclaimed Coachella set, an unforgettable Radio 1 Live Lounge performance of Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean?’, 20 million streams and counting, and a debut album in the works, the future looks bright for one of the UK’s most gifted young singer-songwriters.
The official first single for Australian audiences, ‘Don’t Worry About Me’ was chosen as BBC Radio 1 Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’ and is complemented by an equally incredibly moving video, watch it here.
Though barely in her twenties, Frances’ soul-bearing vocals and youthful whimsy have already earnt her nominations for the BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice Award and BBC Sound of 2016.
‘Her lofty vocals and grounded vocals will, sooner or later, find its way into the ears and hearts of the wider British public’ - Gigwise
‘A raw, unfiltered voice, nurtured in secret and about to echo against the walls of much bigger rooms’ – The Quietus
While many of Frances’ songs are dreamt up on the piano, her versatility has seen her collaborate with Canadian producer Pomo for the neo-jazz track ‘I Care’, and write alongside Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence on the funky, soul-tinged ‘Borrowed Time’.
In her short time in London since moving from her Berkshire home in England’s south-east, Frances has found herself in sessions with acclaimed pop songwriters including Grammy and Oscar winner Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Disclosure, Mary J. Blige), Greg Kurstin (Adele’s ‘Hello’, Beck, Sia) and Jonny Latimer (Ellie Goulding, James Bay).
The experience of writing with these acclaimed songwriters blended with Frances’ own blossoming talents are set to create a debut album filled with heartfelt lyrics and unforgettable melodies, set for release later this year through Capitol Records/EMI Australia.
Don’t miss the opportunity to witness a phenomenal performer, right on the cusp of breaking through to the world stage with the release of her debut album. Joined on stage by just a piano, this performance is set to be an unforgettable experience by those lucky enough to secure tickets.
