“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).
