Frances Madden: “Feeling Good” Tour
A rising star of the Australian music scene, singer, piano player and songwriter Frances Madden effortlessly spans a number of genres from jazz and blues to her own unique compositions. In a relatively short time Frances has built a dedicated following through club and festival appearances, captivating audiences with a combination of her genuinely warm stage presence along with a voice and style that is uniquely her own.
Beginning in September Frances is excited to announce a string of East Coast dates concluding at the 2017 Wangaratta Jazz Festival. Frances says:
“I’m really looking forward to the tour. We’ll be doing a mix of jazz, blues & ballads including some of my original tunes together with our interpretation of timeless classics. There will be a variety of tempos and new arrangements, some beautiful harmonies and also some clever improvisation from great musicians in the band. There will be something for everyone and of course, we’ll be giving some special love to Nina Simone’s classic ‘Feeling Good’ in each show.”
In the past twelve months, Frances has headlined at the JZ Club in Shanghai, drawn a crowd of over 1,500 people at Manly Jazz Festival and supported the legendary Dionne Warwick as well as Grammy Award winner Gregory Porter in their recent Australian shows. She was a feature performer at the Devonport Jazz Festival last year and at the Hobart Festival of Voices.
Frances’ first album If This Were a Dream, a mix of original songs together with her unique take on some timeless classics debuted at #5 on the Australian Jazz Charts. She is currently dividing her time between Nashville and Australia, writing and working on her second studio album for international release in the next twelve months.
