Hi, and Welcome.

 

My name is Fran, and I'm a singer-songwriter who writes from the soul.   I've been singing "soul-songs" since I was a little kid, and I've always been aware my songs reveal my hopes, fears and dreams in deep, truthful and often mysterious ways.

Stories and myths have always figured heavily in my life.  I studied English literature in University and I taught Bible and Jewish folklore to elementary school kids for well over a decade.  I have also worked as a professional storyteller, so I know the power that stores have. 

Like other thinkers who have come before me (Carl Jung, Bruno Bettelheim and Clarissa Pinkola Estes to name a few), I believe that ancient stories can often allow us to get glimpses into our inner lives in ways that other media cannot.

 

My hope is to allow one's  inner song to emerge through the power of ancient stories and to help you reveal your own deep soul song in a way that's fun and exhilirating, and in a safe and supported way.

    "I have a strong interest in the dialogue between biblical narratives and life narratives. When I give or receive a song that arises from the depths, my joy is profound. My wife and I have four children, a dog, and a rabbit."
