Frances Madden

A 'rising star of jazz and blues' . . . and described by ABC Jazz’s Mal Stanley as a talented young vocalist and pianist and ‘one to watch’, Frances is one of the classiest young entertainers and songwriters Australia has produced in recent times.

Frances’ live shows feature her own original tunes – irresistible swing, beautiful ballads and smokey blues – along with her distinctive take on timeless classics.

Frances performs around Australia at leading jazz clubs, festivals and events. Her eight-piece band features some of the country's most talented jazz musicians. Frances has supported leading international artists visiting Australia including the legendary Dionne Warwick and Grammy Award winner Gregory Porter. She has also performed internationally including the respected JZ Club in Shanghai.

Frances is one of Australia's most exciting young entertainers. Each time she plays here she brings a capacity crowd into The Basement 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.
