In 2007, Canadian born Musician/Artist Chris Francis, decided to record some songs he had written. Spent the next 3 years recording and mixing the record in Vancouver, working with some All-Star musicians such as Matt Mei, Adam Drake, Tom Gould, Cassius Khan, the list goes on.. Then it sat on the shelf for the past 3 years waiting, longing for it's moment. Chris comments, "The time has come to release it into the wild.. put to rest the ghosts that haunt this album."
From the opening track 'Diamonds' with its upbeat jazzy groove and slick horns, to the heartfelt introspective 'Far Below'. The whirlwind tablas and violin of 'I'll Be', to the final installment 'No Looking Back', 'Save a little for later' is a collection of songs that proves to be a roller coaster of emotions and a valid representation of that period in Chris' life.
Almost 8 years later from concept to completion, Chris breaths easy and says,” The perfectionist in me is saying it'll never be done, but I've learned to know when to say when. It’s time to let it go."
Whether it's singing and playing songs, or painting a canvas, Chris Francis is a conduit for creativity. Stay tuned, I'm sure there's more to come!
