robert francis @ the bootleg 08.01.11
ps i heard of robert francis a few years ago from a blipper on blip.fm. i don't know why i waited such a long time before seeing him live. robert francis is a multi-instrumentalist, americana singer-songwriter from los angeles. his gravelly voice projects from his old soul, injecting emotion into each of his songs. what joy it brought when i read that his residency for august was at the bootleg theater. if you are in the la area you should check him out.
ps ps he called for his sister from the audience to join him on stage and to sing a couple of songs with him. from their smile exchange and their embrace on stage you could see that they loved each other dearly.
"one by one" was released in august 2007 by aeronaut records.
“before nightfall” in 2009
