David Francis


David Francis is an American singer of traditional pop standards, big band, show tunes and jazz from the Great American Songbook. On his current album, “David Francis Sings the Songs of the Twenties” (Blujazz Records, 2022), George W. Harris, of Jazz Weekly, says, ‘Francis has a voice with elements of casual Dean Martin, hip Michael Franks and seductive Boz Scaggs’.  

David is a leading contemporary interpreter of songs from the Great American Songbook. He began singing at an early age, and while earning his bachelor’s degree in Music at Combs College, he became a professional bass player. David’s desire and aptitude for entertaining people lead him to move from his role as a sideman to that of a singer. He fell in love with the Great American Songbook, the harmonic and melodic beauty of the songs and the stories told by their lyrics and thrives on bringing them to his audience in a way that makes their qualities shine.

David currently sings in a variety of settings, with a piano accompanist, with a trio, a combo, or a full big band. His next album, “You and Me”, is due out the fall of 2022.
