Another fabulous gifted young artist who plays Blues, Soul and classic R&B with skill and feeling beyond her years. Angelique first took the stage at age 7 and has been amazing audiences ever since with powerful, soulful vocals, showmanship and prowess on a variety of instruments (upright & electric bass, electric & acoustic guitar and harmonica). Her voice reminds you of Blues legends like Big Mama Thornton, Aretha Franklin, Koko Taylor and Bessie Smith. She’s already shared the stage with famous artists like Joe Bonamassa, Keb’ Mo’, Gary Clark Jr. and Burton Cummings and performed on the Keeping The Blues Alive Sea Cruise last winter. Her band is a family affair – talented younger sisters Kharincia and Kira on horns, violin and backing vocals, dad Kiran is on drums.
“….there’s no denying powerhouse blues singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Angelique Francis has ‘it,’ and she’s letting it flow for the immense pleasure of listeners everywhere…” Roots Music Canada
