BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire

Fran Smith is a singer and pianist from West Yorkshire who has previously been the opening act for Martha Wainwright, Athlete, Karine Polwart and John Cooper Clarke.

With a tone that reminds many of Norma Waterson and Rachel Unthank and tracks that reference the style of Antony and the Johnsons and Joanna Newsome, there are plenty of reasons to pay her set a visit.

Fran attended the BBC Introducing Masterclass in Salford in March 2013. There, she handed her self-titled debut EP to BBC Radio 2's Steve Lamacq. Lamacq played a track from it the same week before sharing the love with other members of the Radio 2 family including Bob Harris and Janice Long.
