Jack Francis is one of the exciting new breed of Singer/Songwriters emerging from the UK. The heartfelt songs on his debut album are rooted in the finest musical traditions of America, while staying true to his own British and Irish heritage.
His unique blend of folk, country, pop and Americana has been championed by the likes of Janice Long, Tom Robinson, Ricky Ross, Iain Anderson and Eve Blair across the BBC.
“This whole album should be declared an area of outstanding natural beauty.” Louder Than War
“Amazing voice and brilliant songwriting talent” BBC Introducing
Izzie Yardley is a singer/songwriter whose debut EP was recorded last year with producer Dom Monks (Big Thief, Sam Brookes), Ethan Johns (Ray Lamontagne, Crosby, Stills & Nash) and Nick Pini (Laura Marling, Mary Chapin Carpenter). Recently she has recorded vocals for Tom Jones and Freddie Cowan (The Vaccines), been supported by PRS Foundation and Help Musicians, and sold out Green Note, London.
Her distinctive writing style comes from a background in jazz, classical and the classic 70s songbook, while on stage she delivers a performance both powerful and vulnerably honest.
Husband and wife folk duo Pegasuses bring their characteristic blend of darkly comic lyrics and soulful close-knit harmonies to The Arc, Winchester.
