Foundry 616 is delighted to play a part in bringing home Frances Madden, one of Australia’s most talented young singer-songwriters and piano players for two shows only: Friday 3rd, and Saturday 4th of February 2023.

The shows will be Frances’ only performances in Sydney over the summer before she heads back to the UK where she has been wowing London audiences. 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

  • Brendan Clarke on double bass

  • Tim Geldens on drums

  • Ray Cassar on trumpet and Hammond organ

  • Borbala Bodonyi on backing vocals

Earlier this year Frances was invited to sing her original women’s anthem at the Women’s Singles Final of the Australian Open in Melbourne. Frances has played 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. Her current album, Beautiful World will be released by Universal Music in Japan in 2023.
