Hailing from Newbury, songwriter Frances released her debut EP Grow on Communion Records July 10th.

A haunting and emotive affair, the EP showcases 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. Following in the footsteps of such iconic female singers as Carole King and Laura Marling, Frances is one to keep an eye on for 2015.

Her latest EP Let It Out will be released on Oct 16th and you can pre-order it here.
