Fran

I have been performing solo, singing and playing guitar for the past 6 years, as well as performing with bands and have recently started using Ableton and midi controllers. I have studied at Leeds College of Music for 4 years andI am currently coming to the end of a postgraduate degree in performance and composition.

I have been featured on BBC Newcastle and BBC Yorkshire alongside other local radio stations as well as performing as the house band on BBC Yorkshire. I have also performed on Made in Leeds (TV), headlined “Leeds’ leading live music night”, 360 Club twice and supported Hidden Charms, Bang Bang Romeo, Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers
and Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer.

For gigs doing covers I play a mix of songs from Motown to the current era, keeping it either upbeat or happy and relaxed depending on what’s appropriate, always aiming to give my audience the best possible experience by complimenting what they’re doing. I am mostly found playing in bars and at people’s wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions. For my original music I write about personal experiences and use a mix of electronic and real instrument sounds and layering backing vocals, influenced by Wet, Pale Waves, Aurora and Hozier.

Outside of music I really enjoy yoga, aerial silks and exploring outdoors.
