Freddy & Francine

The Americana/Soul duo Freddy & Francine made us instant believers, when we first heard them.  And they return to our home once again.  The best description we have found for them is clear, if not very precise, “…the new king and queen of an emerging new folksy funky countrified alternative hard-to-define music scene in LA….”  It did not seem clear until after we heard them.  And then all we knew for sure was; we needed to share them with you.  Once in a very blue moon we come upon artists who instantly velcro us to their music.

No Depression (the foremost blog for folk Americana) describes Freddy & Francine as "Americana Soul, complete with tight two-part harmonies, engaging songs that will shoot deep into your heart and a musical chemistry that is second-to-none..."  Freddy & Francine are actually singer-songwriters Lee Ferris and Bianca Caruso.  How Lee and Bianca became Freddy & Francine is an engaging story unto itself and you will have to join us on Friday, January 19 to hear more of this tail.

You may have seen and heard Lee Ferris before.  Lee spent the early years of this decade, touring in Broadway’s “Million Dollar Quartet”.  His starring role as Carl Perkins came to him honestly, as you will see and hear when he joins us.

Bianca brings a strong, soulful, blues voice to her Americana songs.  She also brings a theatre background to Freddy & Francine, along with remarkable skills as a musical comedienne.  When not touring with Freddy and Francine or teaching voice and coaching musical theatre, she is part of the musical comedy duo Zabruso.

These two bring us astonishing work as songwriters before they even start singing their own creations.  If you enjoyed Red Moon Road and The Waydown Wanderers, you will adore Freddy & Francine.  They carry the whole room away.  Join us on January 19.
