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
  • Karl Laskowski – Tenor saxophone
  • Tim Geldens – Drums
  • Ray Cassar – Trumpet
  • Borbala Bodonyi – 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.
