About Yves Francois

Thank you so much for listening to my music and taking time to check out this page. Making music has always been an important part of my life. From the moment I first heard Louis Armstrong, through the years I begged my parents for a trumpet, to the time I wrote my first composition I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life. I had an opportunity as a young man, to play and record with so many of the old time greats from the South Side of Chicago and Detroit, A compilation of sounds performed with many of my favorites was later released on Delmark.  

Throughout this time, I continued to work at a regular 9 to 5 job outside of the music industry, saving money to pay for every new recording session. As my band grew and developed,  I have recorded and re-recorded many of the songs which touch and inspire me. I am finally ready to release a CD of some of my best original  compositions and some of my favorite songs from around the world that I have arranged.

Two years ago I lost my mother, with whom I was very close. That, coupled with the changes that I have seen in my mainstream industry have convinced me that I must start pouring myself into my music full-time. I hope that you will take this journey with me, as I will update my patrons with new compositions, and insight into my research into the music that I hold near and dear to my heart.
