Frances Madden – ‘Beautiful World’ Album Launch Tour

Sat 21 Aug

Engaging jazz melodies, harmonies and lyrics.

Frances Madden, one of Australia’s most talented young singer-songwriters and piano players, and her all-star band are here to serenade with her Beautiful World tour, celebrating her second studio album.

Frances Madden’s music is a divine mix of swing, ballads and blues. In addition to her original compositions, the show will feature a selection of unique covers and classics.

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 in 2014.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Reviews

  • 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 Musician
  • 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
