Frances is one of Australia’s rising stars of vocal jazz and blues. She performs regularly at leading venues, festivals, events and jazz clubs around Australia, including The Basement in Sydney and Bird’s Basement in Melbourne.
While she has been likened to a young Diana Krall or Norah Jones, Frances captivates her audiences with a combination of her genuinely warm stage presence together with a voice and style that is uniquely her own.
“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.
“Frances brings a capacity crowd into The Basement whenever she plays here and every person in the house loves her special mix of jazz, blues and classics. Catch her in Australia before she gets taken off to the USA or Europe.” – Dominique Robinson, Owner of The Basement, Sydney.
Frances’ debut album If This Were a Dream reached #5 on the ARIA Jazz Charts. Her performances include charity work and her charity commitments this year have included Tour de Cure along with Shine at the House (UN Autism Awareness Day at Sydney Opera house).
The Frances Madden Collective are available for weddings, corporate events and private functions with flexible configurations to suit any need.
