David Francis is the premiere Seattle-based singer of traditional pop standards, big band and show tunes, and jazz. He sings songs made famous by singers like Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Mel Torme, Joe Williams, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Louis Prima, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Hartman, Perry Como, The Ink Spots, The Mills Brothers, and Louis Jordan.
Born in Philadelphia, David paid his way through music school at Combs College as a bass player, often playing 5-6 nights a week. David’s desire and aptitude for entertaining people lead him to move from a sideman to a frontman role as a singer. Through his study of jazz, he fell in love with the Great American Songbook, the harmonic and melodic beauty of the songs and the stories told by their lyrics. David thrives on bringing them to his audience in a way that makes their qualities shine, and has become a leading contemporary interpreter of songs from the Great American Songbook.
David sings in a variety of settings, with a piano accompanist, with a trio, a combo, or a full big band.
