UK singer/songwriter Alex Francis has unveiled the lyric video for his brand new single‘Make Believe’ahead of upcoming UK and European tour dates supporting pop legend Melanie C.
The track is a captivating glimpse into Alex’s distinctive soulful/pop sound, with exquisite acoustic guitar work set against his charming, rasping vocals which radiate pure emotion.
Alex was raised in the sleepy Hertfordshire town of Hitchin, but moved to Brighton to realise his musical aspirations in a more creative and exciting environment, before relocating to North London last year.
His emotive melding of rock and soul has won him fans far and wide. Amongst a string of live performances Alex opened for Samm Henshaw at his ‘Sound Experiment’ EP launch in August at The Lexington and also won the support of Time Out Magazine’s ‘Rising Stars’ artist programme last year, showcasing him at some of his highest profile shows to date.
Alex will be hitting the road in April, supporting Melanie C as well as providing guest vocals on her single ‘Hold On’, which is now being on April 28th. The tour includes seven UK dates, with a stop off in the capital at the Shepherds Bush Empire on April 8th.
Alex’s debut EP lands later this year, following collaborative writing sessions in Nashville, Belfast and London. Catch him wowing scores of festival crowds throughout the UK this summer.
