Alex Francis - Free

This review was originally published in July of 2018.

It's a soul-heavy pop sound somewhere between Ray LaMontagne and Allen Stone. The lead vocal is emotional and endearing, with equal parts gravel and a shattered vibrato. The message is a simple reminder that letting go is sometimes just the thing to heal a troubled mind.

The opening melody gives hints of the framework behind this seemingly casual band production. With the whispered crackle of that lead vocal, and the live feeling of the drum and bass parts together, Alex Francis delivers a personal anthem to achievement that sets a positive tone for life using the power of groove.
