    In a very special episode, we chat to singer-songwriter Jack Francis in our home studio about his new single ‘A Little Love’.

Exhausted and overexcited after a long recording session, the three of us talk about his writing journey, our process working together and his flawless ‘one-take’ vocals before performing his new single live. His debut album is due for release in 2021.

A jewel amongst podcasts

Really interesting to get a peek into how real-world songwriters work. Podcast has a great balance - informal & entertaining chat but really well put together & very listenable...and the cover version of the guest’s song is a cool touch to finish. Love it.
