Jack Francis: Failure Is An Option!



Southampton-based singer-songwriter Jack Francis releases the excellent track “Failure” – a tongue-in-cheek self-deprecating look at the musician’s success or lack of, in his career. Taken from his incoming new album “Early Retirement”, due for release 22nd March 2024.

The multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter is a true talent with his soulful folk style. “Failure’ is the second of Jack Francis’s 2024 singles following “Lifeline”.

On production duties for the album once again is Archie Sylvester (of folk duo Ferris & Sylvester), making the entirety of the record at their home studio – blurring the lines between folk, rock, soul and country.

Jack’s career in music began when he was 15, honing his craft performing in pubs, clubs and venues. After more than 10 years of touring around the UK, he briefly became a songwriter for a publishing house, penning pop songs for other artists.

This resulted in a creative fire being fuelled to write and record music on his own terms. Early single releases were championed by Tom Robinson on his BBC 6Music show and BBC Introducing, with further radio support down the line from BBC Radio 2 as well as Iain Anderson and Ricky Ross of BBC Scotland.

Upon release of Jack’s self-titled debut album, it received positive media support. Live, Jack has played a slew of Sofar Sounds shows, opened for the likes of Flyte and Courtney Marie Andrews and appeared at several major UK festivals such as Isle of Wight, Victorious and Stone Free Festival at London’s O2 Arena. He is currently touring as support to Ferris & Sylvester across the UK.
