UK singer songwriter Alex Francis was raised in the Hertfordshire town of Hitchin, but moved to Brighton to realise his musical aspirations in a more creative and exciting environment in 2010, before relocating to North London last year.
His emotive melding of rock and soul has spurned a completely organic rise to prominence that few singer/songwriters have experienced. Alex opened for Samm Henshaw at his ‘Sound Experiment’ EP launch in August at The Lexington and he won the support of Time Out Magazine’s ‘Rising Stars’ artist programme early last year, showcasing him at some of his highest profile shows to date.
Alex will be hitting the road in April, supporting Melanie C after providing guest vocals for the song ‘Hold On’, that appeared as a bonus track on the German release of her latest album Version Of Me. The tour includes seven UK dates, with a stop off in the capital at the Shepherds Bush Empire on April 8th.
Alex’s debut EP ‘These Words’ lands June 9th following collaborative sessions in Nashville, Belfast and London in 2016. Catch him wowing scores of festival crowds throughout the UK this summer.
