Frances McKevitt Short Info

Music isn't about fame and fortune or being on tv, it’s simply art for art’s sake.
I've never felt the need to be current, follow a trend or fit in, I’m just getting on with my own gig; life’s a very short gig.

If you hail from Liverpool the old saying goes, ‘You’ll be a comedian (class clown), a footballer (didn't have the legs) or a musician.’

Having lost my musical virginity to Elvis at the unfashionable age of ten, my next musical epiphany was at sixteen. Mesmerized by a motley crew of drop-out hippy Christians and their inspirational songs, I determined to possess that goose-bump magic too.

Joining a Christian commune on my seventeenth birthday, I was to spend the next ten years travelling the world with guitar in hand, and like any self-respecting troubadour, sang for my daily bread and a place to rest my weary head.

Songwriters are rather like magpies, stealing a bit from here, borrowing a little influence from there, before mixing it all up and making it their our own.

You can also catch me performing with The Frantastics
