Francis and the Lights – American pop project
Francis and the Lights is a music project created by Francis Farewell Starlite in 2017. The musician is the only member of the project. He works with R&B, electronics, synth-pop, and other genres. Soon after the project’s launch, Francis released his debut EP, Striking. It turned out to be successful and brought the singer popularity.
In 2008, Francis and the Lights released a new EP. He called it Modern Promise. Soon after that, the artist worked as a producer for Drake’s single “Karaoke”. The song was later featured in the Canadian rapper’s LP, Thank Me Later, which came out in 2010. The same year, Francis embarked on a tour with Drake and other popular artists, among whom were MGMT, Ke$ha, Mark Ronson, and La Roux.
In July 2010, Francis and the Lights recorded the third EP, It'll Be Better. It came out with the assistance of a new label, Cantora. To record the album, the singer invited a future film director Jake Schreier. Later, Jake worked with Francis on several other projects, filming music videos for his songs. After some time, Schreier turned to the movie industry and stopped working with the artist.
