"Soul, blues, funk, pop, you can call it whatever you want, but I like to think that I write 'good’ music."
- Francis Aud
Francis Aud is a Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and bandleader who writes and performs music that is almost as charming as he is.
A modern day entertainer whose main influences and inspirations range from the likes of the great troubadours and performers such as: Sam Cooke, Al Green, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and more contemporarily, Allen Stone and Paolo Nutini, Francis writes, sings, and performs music that will make you dance, laugh, cry, feel things in your loins (but if you were feeling things in your loins before listening to his music please go see a doctor), and smile so hard your face will hurt, all while managing to be his funny, passionate, and genuine self on stage.
Having performed throughout the greater NYC area at notable venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, The Bowery Electric, Arlene’s Grocery, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom (x2), and alongside Sofar Sounds, Francis is a consummate performer who knows how to confidently work and wow a crowd.
Francis Aud's debut EP 'Tender Things' (released July 2017) is available to listen to on all platforms now as well as his new single, "Friends Like Us" (released July 2018). He is currently compiling and honing new (FONKY fRe$h) material to be released during the summer months of 2019.
Francis also writes, records and releases music under the stage name “stella.” for his indie-acoustic side project which can be found here.
In the meantime he looks forward to seeing your beautiful face at a show very soon!
