Born in 1982 to an English father and a French mother, Fran Rodgers was raised with her twin sister in an old mining town in Nottinghamshire. Hours spent listening to her parents records inspired a love of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and, later, the likes of Nick Drake, Nick Cave and Jeff Buckley. Following a move to Leeds in 2000 Fran discovered a passion for singing and, self-taught on the guitar, she began to write. Like many of her influences she performs alone, transporting the listener into the fragile world she paints of love, loss and hope.
Fran Rodgers is a breath of fresh air in a world dominated by Rock and Pop. Her music is timeless, her lyrics engaging, her voice pure and graceful. She is a rare talent, whose music will pull at the heart strings and leave its mark on the listener long after the final notes have faded away.
