Based in Laval, QC, Francis Blvd. is the solo project of Francis Gabriel-Alexandre. Francisdelivers a fusion of R&B, hip hop and an occasional touch of jazz elements led by soulful tenor vocals. After years of playing in several bands/collectives and in multiple shows, Francis started performing mainly as a solo artist in 2019, releasing a few singles and working on his debut EP, Radical Neutral, out now.
The lead single from this collection, “All Came From Me,” is a great introduction to him, as a person and as a songwriter. At the same time that he praises his family for making him the person he is today, he also breaks the connection with a toxic relationship with his biological father (also named Francis), refusing to give him acknowledgement for his own negative traits.
