Her unique mix of vocal jazz, blues and ballads has been selling out Sydney’s best jazz clubs and venues and now the sophisticated and talented Frances Madden is bringing her band to Melbourne for her first tour. Described by ABC Jazz’s Mal Stanley as a talented young vocalist and pianist and ‘one to watch’, Frances is one of the classiest young entertainers Australia has produced in recent times.

While she’s been likened to a combination of a Diana Krall, Nora Jones and Eva Cassidy, Frances captivates her audiences with a combination of her genuinely warm stage presence together with a voice and style that is uniquely her own. Frances is also a talented and engaging original composer so when she performs her own swinging tunes and beautiful ballads, they merge seamlessly with the timeless classics she covers.

As jazz legend James Morrison put it: “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”. Matt Bailey, Presenter of Jazz Vibes on Sydney’s Fine Music 102.5 FM said “Frances' music is a river of original and heartfelt material, truly a creative force not just in the jazz idiom, but also as a genuine contemporary songwriter.”

Frances will play in Melbourne as part of her seven piece band (more details below). They will be playing three gigs only this trip, with the first one on Thursday 24th Sept. at Dizzy's Jazz Club. Bookings essential on (03) 9428 1233 or at 'www.dizzys.com.au'.
