"Soul, blues, funk, pop, 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.
Francis is a modern day entertainer whose main influences and inspirations range from the likes of: Al Green, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and more contemporarily, Allen Stone, Bruno Mars, and Paolo Nutini. He writes, sings, and performs music that will make you dance, laugh, cry, and feel things in your loins… if he’s doing his job right anyways.
As a result of having performed at notable venues such as: Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene’s Grocery, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, The Hotel Cafe, and alongside Sofar Sounds across the country, Francis has established himself as a consummate entertainer who knows how to work and wow a crowd and continues to rise in the ranks as one of New York’s most fun and endearing musicians.
Francis Aud's debut EP Tender Things was released in July 2017 and is available to listen to on all platforms now. His newer and more FONK-driven music (a unique blend of pop and funk) is also available to stream (ocean, river, and all bodies of water) on all platforms.
He is currently playing up and down the East Coast alongside his band The Professionals in attempts to hone his live show and will be releasing his sophomore EP titled FONK. during January of 2020!
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 (and your mother’s beautiful faces) at a show very soon!
