Michael Franks Booking Agency Profile

Book Michael Franks for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Michael Franks is a smooth jazz singer-songwriter from the United States, who has recorded with Who's Who of artists, such as Patti Austin, Brenda Russell, Art Garfunkel, and David Sanborn. His songs have been recorded by The Manhattan Transfer, Patti LaBelle, Carmen McRae, Diana Krall, Shirley Bassey and The Carpenters. After 22 years of smash hits and smooth jazz came the definitive album that pop and jazz fans were waiting for: The Best Of Michael Franks-A Backward Glance. I never intended to be an artist," remarks Franks with his usual candor. "I was interested in writing songs." The year was 1975 when the promising young talent found himself playing live in front of an audience of record executives in a small office that served as the label's headquarters on the Warner Bros. film lot. "I remember I left 'Popsicle Toes' till last because even I knew what a strange song it was." It was a winning combination that would pave the way for 12 stellar album releases over the next two decades..
