“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 brought a capacity crowd and thrilled the house with her special mix of swing, ballads, and blues. Catch her here before the USA steals her away”Dominique Robinson / Owner, The Basement

 A year in the making, the Beautiful World album was produced by ARIA Award-winning maestro Chong Lim AM (John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John). Frances received five nominations at this years Australian Songwriters' Association Awards for tracks on the album. This performance at Foundry 616 will also feature a selection of unique covers and classics arranged by Frances.
