The Ottawa-based singer and bassist comes to visit us with her six-piece ensemble, three of whom are horn players, and a new album, Long River, her second after Kissed By The Blues released a few years ago. His young career has clearly taken off in versatility: a multi-instrumentalist with a wide repertoire, Francis confidently dives into blues, gospel, soul, jazz and rock with a definite talent for songwriting. In front of audiences of Joe Bonnamassa, Beth Hart, Keb Mo or Gary Clark jr. she takes her stride with the serenity of one who can't go wrong.
