“With a voice that stirs the soul like the sound of a weeping choir boy, frankey owes her streak to the artistry of Bristol’s pavements, and her crushing lyrics to the hymnbooks of her childhood” – Miele Passmore
Fran has been our Musician in Residence at HMP Eastwood Park since 2011, inspiring the women in her sessions to find their own voice and tell their stories. Since Fran’s audition for Changing Tunes, where she performed Motorways, we have been in awe of her songwriting, and we are very grateful that she is donating the proceeds from this E.P. to our ongoing work.
“This E.P. is a snapshot of songs I’ve written from past and present, which I gladly dedicate to Changing tunes – the job that I’m indebted to for its ongoing inspiration!”
