Alex Francis was raised in sleepy Hertfordshire town Hitchin, but moved to Brighton to realise his musical dreams in a more creative and exciting environment. He has since relocated to North London.
His emotive melding of rock and soul emerged out of the London grass roots rock scene in 2015. This spurned a completely organic rise to prominence that few singer songwriters have experienced. In the last few months, he has showcased his music at some of the capital’s most vibrant live music venues. Such venues include Camden’s Jazz Cafe, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen and The King’s Head Member’s Club in Dalston.
Alex has also opened for Samm Henshaw at his ‘Sound Experiment – Part 1’ EP launch at The Lexington and supported Luke Sital Singh at the Brighton Dome. He won the support of TimeOut Magazine’s ‘Rising Stars’ artist programme, showcasing him at some of his highest profile shows to date. On top of that, he has been singing background vocals for James Bay during the Spring / Summer leg of his Chaos and the Calm world tour.
Alex has recently collaborated with Anders Grahn (Haley Reinhart, Magnus Tingsek, Andrew McMahon) Dan Smith (The Noisettes) Rupert Christie (Lou Reed, Lianne La Havas) and Josh Grant (Samm Henshaw, Gavin DeGraw) on new tracks for his debut EP. This is set for release soon.
