The Fox Theatre in Boulder is set to host an electrifying evening of musical enchantment as Neal Francis brings his In Plain Sight Tour to town on Thursday, September 12, 2024.

Francis, the singer/songwriter/pianist extraordinaire, will be gracing the stage to unveil the rich tapestry of his latest album, "In Plain Sight." This new offering from Francis presents a body of work that is as hauntingly enchanted as it is painfully self-aware. Drawing inspiration from Greek myths, frenzied dreams, and late-night drives in the depths of summer delirium, Francis weaves together a kaleidoscopic sound that is endlessly absorbing.

In Plain Sight: The Journey Behind the Music

"In Plain Sight" is the second full-length album from Neal Francis, following the critically acclaimed debut "Changes." Recorded almost entirely at the now-defunct St. Peter’s UCC church in Chicago, where Francis found himself living during a tumultuous year, the album is a testament to profound upheaval and weary resilience.

Mixed by Grammy Award-winner Dave Fridmann and produced by analog obsessive Sergio Rios, "In Plain Sight" spotlights Francis’s refined yet free-spirited performance on piano—a talent nurtured since the age of four. From ragtime to gospel soul to The Who, Francis's influences are diverse and deep-rooted.

A Musical Journey of Redemption

"In Plain Sight" offers a lush and dreamlike quality, thanks to Francis’s restless experimentation with analog synths and the dedicated contributions of his bandmates. Each track on the album bears witness to Francis's introspection and growth, from the majestic opener "Alameda Apartments" to the guitar-heavy anthem "Can’t Stop the Rain."

With nods to Greek mythology in tracks like "Prometheus," Francis delves into themes of addiction, redemption, and transformation. The album's title itself reflects Francis's journey of acknowledging his struggles and striving for a better tomorrow.

A Night of Musical Brilliance at the Fox Theatre

Audiences at the Fox Theatre can expect an unforgettable evening as Neal Francis takes them on a sonic journey through the depths of his soul. With his mesmerizing piano work, soaring vocals, and captivating stage presence, Francis promises a performance that will resonate long after the final chord has faded.
