"If passion isn't present, forget it."
Francis Aud is a Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/bandleader who writes and performs soul music that is almost as charming as he is.
A modern day troubadour whose main influences range from the likes of the greats such as Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, Al Green and Marvin Gaye, and more contemporarily, Allen Stone and Paolo Nutini, Mr. Aud sings and writes music with an indie, funk, and gospel, feel and a touch of blues and poetry.
Above all, music that is honest, tender, and above all, genuine.
Having performed throughout the greater NYC area at popular venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, DROM, The Bowery Electric (sold-out), The Knitting Factory, and along Sofar Sounds multiple times, Francis is a consummate performer who knows how to work and wow a crowd.
Mr. Aud himself can be found any given day wailing, weeping, and pouring his heart out throughout the greater NYC area. He is currently trying out new material in his solo/band shows to zero in on which songs will appear on his first full-length LP.
Francis Aud's debut EP 'Tender Things' is available to listen to on all platforms now!
