Francesca Confortini | Vocal Tutor | ICMP London

Francesca has been a professional singer for over ten years around Europe with a background in band fronting, backing vocals, session singing and musical theatre.  

After graduating in Performing Arts at SDM (Scuola del Musical) in Milan, Italy, she began her career as a musical theatre performer starring as Carmen Diaz in the musical 'Fame', and toured around the country with her former band 7s8 for two years.

She moved to London in 2013, where she attended the BMus course in Popular Music Performance and graduated with first-class honours. 

Francesca is a very busy gigging vocalist in different genres, fronting the gipsy jazz touring band Gypsy Dynamite, the international soul band London Soul Section, the Swingpunks Jazz Big Band, her own trio Jazz Silhouettes and her funk ensemble WSFB. She also stars in Dolce Vita Live, an Italian themed show alongside her colleague and ICMP tutor Bruno D'Ambra.

She has been working with numerous acclaimed session musicians and producers such as Leif Searcy (Phil Collins), Francesco Mendolia (Incognito), Luigi Casanova (Joanne Shaw Taylor), Andres Mesa (Roxy Music) and many others. Her live experience includes performances at London Wembley Stadium, The Roundhouse, Ronnie Scott's, Pizza Express, Le Bar Americain in Monaco and the legendary Salumeria della Musica in Milan. She is currently recording her first solo EP under the artist name of Fran. 

Her versatility makes her a vocal artist with a unique crossover capability, always able to offer useful insights to any vocal performers willing to experiment and develop their performance craft.
