Foundry 616 is delighted to welcome back Frances Madden, one of Australia’s most talented young singer-songwriters and piano players for two shows; Saturday 22nd and Friday 28th May. Frances and her all-star band will present her ‘Beautiful World Show’, featuring music from her latest album of that name, released by ABC Music.

“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.” – James Morrison / Jazz Legend

“Only a vastly talented songwriter produces such works . . . and when she chose to open out, she played jazz piano with authentic brilliance” – Eric Myers / The Australian

“Frances brought a capacity crowd and thrilled the house with her special mix of swing, ballads, and blues. Catch her here before the USA steals her away” – Dominique Robinson / Owner, The Basement

A year in the making, the Beautiful World album was produced by ARIA Award-winning maestro Chong Lim AM (John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John). These performances at Foundry 616 will also feature a selection of unique covers and classics arranged by Frances. She will be backed by an eight-piece all-star band featuring some of Australia’s most talented musicians! As well as Frances on vocals and piano, the show will feature:

Carl Dewhurst: Guitar
Brett Hirst: Double bass
Tim Geldens: Drums
Ray Cassar: Trumpet
Karl Laskowski: Saxophone
Borbala Bodonyi: Backing vocals
Jo Fabro: Backing vocals
And special guest Ian Cooper on violin!

Frances plays to full houses at leading jazz venues and festivals around Australia. She has supported touring international artists including Dionne Warwick and Grammy-Award winner Gregory Porter as well as headlining at the acclaimed JZ Club in Shanghai. Her first studio album ‘If this were a dream’ went to #5 on the ARIA Jazz Charts. Beautiful World will also be released by Universal Music in Japan in late 2021.
