Final Francesqa Songs.

It would be amazing if you guys could all go and download the ‘Before I Break Your Heart’ Francesqa single and B-side 'Away Away’. We wrote and recorded those songs just over a year ago now and I’m so glad the guys have released them, I always wanted people to hear them and now you can!

It really seems like an end of an era having those songs released and makes me remember the awesome times I/we had in that band, not least recording those two demos with the brilliant Jordan Fish (google Studio 91 Newbury) who was a constant support to Francesqa throughout the life of the band. 

Would love to hear what you guys think of the songs, and I really do hope you will support every member of the band in whatever they decide to do now. Some of my closest friends in the world for such a long time.

Head over to iTunes now and get involved!

On “The Kelly File” last night, host Megyn Kelly discussed the protests — or “riots,” as they are being referred to on Fox News — sparked by the death of Freddie Gray with a conservative civil rights “leader” who blamed the violence not on the police, but on the protesters for not having a clearly outlined set of complaints. Kelly spoke to Joe Hicks, who said of protests against police brutality like those in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland that “it’s got to have people like Dr. [Martin Luther] King spinning in their graves to hear people describing this as some sort of movement.”

“There’s an almost infantile urge to get what they want and get it now, on the part of the protesters,” Hicks said
