Frances Madden – Saturday, 31st of July 2021:

After her two sold-out album launch shows here at Foundry 616 in May, we are delighted to welcome back one of Australia’s most talented young singer-songwriters and piano players.

“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. The show will feature songs from Frances’ recent release ‘Beautiful World’ as well a selection of unique covers and classics.

Frances will be backed by an all-star band with some of Australia’s most talented musicians including:

  • Carl Dewhurst – Guitar
  • Brett Hirst – Double bass
  • Tim Geldens – Drums
  • Ray Cassar – Trumpet & Hammond Organ
  • Mark Taylor – Tenor Saxophone
  • Borbala Bodonyi – Backing Vocals
  • Jo Fabro – 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.





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