Introducing the American multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Robert Francis, who is set to release his forthcoming album 'Before Nightfall' on 29th November via Atlantic Records.
Robert will also be gracing British shores later on this year at a special one-off gig at London's Borderline on 4th December. Tickets are now on sale.
Growing up in a musical family, Robert left school as a young teenager to dedicate his life to writing and performing music. He released his 2007 debut album, 'One By One', at the tender age of 20 years old. Critics have compared him to legends like Bruce Springsteen and Townes Van Zandt and the next generation of alt-country acts like Wilco and Ryan Adams.
Destined for a career in music, a young Robert received a guitar from Ry Cooder. He was asked to play lead guitar and most stringed instrument parts for Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johanssen on their album 'Break Up', as well as enlisting the help of Grammy Award-winning producer, Dave Sardy (Johnny Cash, Band of Horses) to produce his forthcoming album, 'Before Nightfall'.
