Hailing from Newbury, songwriter, Frances, released her debut EP Grow on Communion Records last July.

Following in the footsteps of such iconic female singers as Carole King and Laura Marling, the EP is a haunting and emotive affair, showcasing the power of the 21-year old songstress’ soul-laden voice, as well as her innate skill for crafting songs that have the ability to be at once both intimate and powerful.

2015 saw Frances support James Bay, receive extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, as well as be nominated for the BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice. Tipped by Apple MusicSpotify and Digital Spy as one to watch 2016, the young songwriter is currently recording her debut album.
