In 1999 after leaving behind a career in construction,  David Francey embarked on his new vocation as a singer songwriter, releasing his debut album Torn Screen Door.  His many travels across Canada along with his Scottish heritage have helped shape his music into something genuine, profound and enormously entertaining.  His straightforward songwriting style is filled with stories of real people and real places.  His voice is both warm and trustworthy like a favourite teacher from childhood reciting lessons in song.  His simple and clean folk arrangements are thorough and captivating.

David has released 9 albums to date.  His latest release, 2011’s Late Edition has the ability to hold you close and keep you safe and warm as well as the power to make you stamp your feet hard enough to kick the dirt up from beneath the floorboards.  A true Canadian troubadour.  I am sincerely blown away by this man’s songwriting talent.  I urge you to check him out www.davidfrancey.com
