Described by Fine Music 102.5FM as ‘Australia’s rising star of jazz and blues’, Berry Jazz festival is delighted to present one of Australia’s classiest performers and most talented young singer-songwriters with her latest show, ‘Practical Magic’.

“Frances has a wonderful feeling for jazz and blues standards but what makes her a real stand-out are her original songs and her unique style” - James Morrison

Enjoy Australia's rising star of jazz and blues over a two-course lunch at the South Coast's most awarded winery, Coolangatta Estate

Frances’ music is jazz-oriented with a broad adult contemporary appeal. Her shows are a mix of her unique take on timeless classics as well as her own original swing, blues and ballads.

Frances captivates her audiences with a combination of her genuinely warm stage presence together with a voice and style that are uniquely her own. Her new show, 'Practical Magic', takes its title from Frances’ whimsical tune of the same name. In addition to Frances on piano and vocals, the six-piece line-up for the show includes some of Australia’s finest jazz musicians.

In the past year or two, Frances completed a successful eight-show East Coast tour, as well as performing at festivals including Wangaratta Jazz, Sydney International Women's Jazz Festival, Manly Jazz, Hobart Festival of Voices and Devonport Jazz. She has played to capacity audiences at Australia’s most popular jazz venues including The Basement in Sydney, Bird's Basement and the Paris Cat in Melbourne, and Doo-Bop Jazz Club in Brisbane.

Frances recently headlined at the JZ Club in Shanghai. Frances has supported Dionne Warwick, Gregory Porter and other international artists here in Australia.

Frances says: “I’m so looking forward to our upcoming show at Berry Jazz festival. I’m part way through recording a new studio album with ARIA Award-winning producer Chong Lim in Melbourne and we’ll be featuring some new material from that as well as some old favourites. I hope you’ll join us for a great afternoon!”

Let yourself be spellbound!
