This is the cover (resting on one of the many glassworks in my place) of Francois Mulder's first CD. It's called "The Love Led Acoustic Sessions" - great concept.
Francois is a soulful South African born singer and composer, Humber grad and yes, you guessed it..."Jazzology" guest...
With a revolving array of musicians he performed a variety of selections from his album (which is acoustic) - there was violin and cello and bass and electric bass and vibes and backup singers...whew!
The Band: Chris Virtue/Bass, Shannon Quinn/violin, Mariel Gonzales/Cello, Greg Matthews/Vibes & Percussion, Kristjan Bergey/Saxophone and on Back Up Vocals Marla Walters, Andre Reid & Janee Olivia
Francois accompanied himself on a number of tunes on keyboards.
Highlights included a duet "Get Off Your Couch" with an amazing guitarist, Heather Crawford, and a vocal duet with Marla.... and an ode to his homeland "Potchefstroom" sung in Afrikaan.
Opening act was the compelling singer/songwriter Amy Pitt.
I am so proud of you Francois! Congratulations!
