E pluribus unum. It’s on the American dollar bill. From the many, one. Robert Francis, at the age of 22, has seemingly melded many disparate facets of American rock/folk/country into a tasty music stew. Pedal steel, piano, guitar, and vocals (to name a few) come together in classic fashion. Francis’ hooks are like that delicious secret ingredient, where you find yourself singing along before the tune is even over. His second album, Before Nightfall, gets off to a great start with the single Junebug. But other compositions such as Darkness or Nightfall have exactly the same epic quality. They round out a diverse record with hints of singer/songwriter, indie rock, and epic rock and roll. At 22, the future is unbelievably bright for this indie wunderkind.
