Frances Madden + Band – ONLY Sydney Shows for 2022! – Friday, 25th of March 2022:

Foundry 616 is delighted to welcome back Frances Madden, one of Australia’s most talented young singer-songwriters and piano players for two shows only: Friday 4th and Friday 25th March 2022.

The shows are the first and last in a five-city NSW/ACT tour supported by The Australia Council. They will be Frances’ last performance in Sydney before she takes her music to the UK.

We highly recommend booking early to secure a seat. Frances will perform songs from her album Beautiful World (ABC Music) alongside some new tunes and her unique take on a few much-loved classics.

“Frances has a wonderful feeling for jazz and blues standards but what makes her a real stand-out are her original songs and unique style.” – James Morrison / Jazz Legend

“Only a vastly talented songwriter produces such works . . . and when she chose to open out, she played jazz piano with authentic brilliance” – Eric Myers / The Australian

Frances’ music is a highly accessible mix of swing, ballads, and blues with a broadly adult contemporary appeal. Frances will be backed by an all-star band featuring some of Australia’s most talented musicians including:

  • Carl Dewhurst on guitar
  • Brett Hirst on double bass
  • Tim Geldens on drums
  • Ray Cassar on trumpet and Hammond organ
  • Karl Laskowski on tenor saxophone
  • Borbala Bodonyi on backing vocals
  • Jo Fabro on backing vocals

Frances plays to full houses at leading jazz venues and festivals around Australia. She has supported touring international artists including Dionne Warwick and Grammy-Award winner Gregory Porter as well as headlining at the acclaimed JZ Club in Shanghai.

Her first studio album ‘If this were a dream’ went to #5 on the ARIA Jazz Charts. Beautiful World will be released by Universal Music in Japan later this year.

These shows will be part of a five-city NSW/ACT Tour in March 2022 including Sydney, Wollongong, Bowral, and Canberra. For more info go to https://www.francesmadden.com/shows.


This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding, and advisory body.
