Francis Aud is a Brooklyn-based bandleader who writes and performs music that performs soul and funk music that will make you dance, laugh, cry, feel things in your loins, and smile so hard your face will hurt. Having performed throughout the greater NYC area at notable venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, The Bowery Electric, The Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, and alongside Sofar Sounds, Francis Aud and his band, The Professionals, are entertainers through and through and know how to confidently work and wow a crowd. 
 

Milk was formed in 2012 at Boston University, Milk began as a collaboration between guitarist Matt Brady and pianist Sam Taber. The group has expanded over the years into a four-piece with drummer H.L. Weatherby and bassist Tim Mensel completing the lineup. Milk pushed the boundaries of their sound on their last release, 2017's Horsetown Threshold, (released on Midnight Werewolf), as they incorporated heavy riffs, psychedelic grooves, and angelic harmonies on the album. They've played with the likes of Pile and Arbor Labor Union, bringing their songs across the country, and with a new EP completed, the group is setting out on tour again this spring. 


*Black Alley will no longer be on this show.

Francis Aud

Soul, blues, funk, pop music, you can call it whatever you want, but I like to think that I write 'good music'."                                          

- Francis Aud

Francis Aud is a Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and bandleader who writes and performs music that is almost as charming as he is.

A modern day entertainer whose main influences and inspirations range from the likes of the great troubadours and performers such as: Sam Cooke, Al Green, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and more contemporarily, Allen Stone and Paolo Nutini, Francis writes, sings, and performs music that will make you dance, laugh, cry, feel things in your loins (but if you were feeling things in your loins before listening to his music please go see a doctor), and smile so hard your face will hurt, all while managing to be his funny, passionate, and genuine self on stage.

Having performed throughout the greater NYC area at notable venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, The Bowery Electric, The Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, and alongside Sofar Sounds, Francis is a consummate performer who knows how to confidently work and wow a crowd. 

Francis Aud's debut EP 'Tender Things' (released July 2017) is available to listen to on all platforms now as well as his new single, "Friends Like Us"  (released July 2018). He is currently compiling and honing new material to be released during the summer months of 2019.

Francis also writes and records for an indie-acoustic side project and releases music under the stage name “stella.” which can be listened to here.

In the meantime he looks forward to seeing your beautiful face at a show very soon!
