Freddy & Francine (LA Pop Duo) at Sculpterra Winery

  • Sculpterra Winery 5015 Linne Rd Paso Robles, CA, 93446 United States (map)

Freddy & Francine is the result of a multitude of late-night writing sessions between Bianca Caruso and Lee Ferris. Drawing from influences like Ray LaMontagne, The Swell Season and The Rolling Stones, Hits Magazine says that "Freddy & Francine are building their story behind beautiful vocal harmonies, a solid writing style and a captivating live set". Between 2008 and 2010, Freddy & Francine became favorites on the Los Angeles live circuit, building a word-of-mouth following and drawing crowds to their gigs at Hotel Café, Vermont Restaurant, McCabe’s and the Cinema Bar. L.A. radio station KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic added one of their songs, and helped to bolster the group’s sales for their self titled EP and their first album, "The Briar Patch." A four year hiatus saw Lee Ferris (Freddy) touring the globe as Carl Perkins with Broadway's "Million Dollar Quartet" while Bianca Caruso (Francine) co-created and starred in a successful musical comedy act, "Zabruso", which has cultivated a strong Los Angeles cult following and has taken her to the stages of the The Montreal Comedy Festival. 

Special guests include Allison Rice with Pat Pearson, Drew Tabor, Randall Lamb, and Daniel Lower.
