Discover why Rolling Stone, People and Musician magazines raved about Francesca Beghe’s major label debut release and why she was voted VH1’s Artist of the Month, made multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, and a national tour that found her performing in sold-out arenas and stadiums.
Francesca’s independent release Dreamworld featured an all-star cast including Marc Cohn, Duke Levine, Ollabelle, Lenny Pickett, plus Peter Gabriel’s classic rhythm section: Jerry Marotta and Tony Levin. Produced by Ben Wisch, Dreamworld features nine original songs including collaborations with legendary writers J.D. Souther and Will Jennings.
Francesca has also enjoyed success as an established songwriter. Her song “Trust in Me” recorded by Joe Cocker was featured on his solo album Unchain My Heart as well in the Oscar®-nominated film The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston. The multi-platinum, grammy award winning The Bodyguard soundtrack is the best selling soundtrack of all time!
The fabulous musicians joining Francesca for her show at The Cutting Room in NYC on June 2 are:
Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney, Sarah McLachlan)
Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega, Celine Dion, Chris Botti)
Daniel A Weiss (Joan Osborne, Al Green, Anthony Rapp)
Zev Katz (Ben Harper, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor)
Diane Garisto (Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Laura Nyro)
Emily Bindiger (Carol King, Leonard Cohen, Buster Poindexter).
“Sincere Passion and Crisp Images… from soft-edged pop romanticism to take charge anthems of love without ever feeling false or contrived. Beghe incorporates bits of R&B, rock, jazz, country, burglarizing each genre with a certain gutsy, appealing self-confidence.” – Leonard Pitts The Miami Herald
