- CANCELED - Julia Francis

This event has been canceled.
Given the spike in covid-19 in our area, new guidance by Washington State, and the concern of the band for their bandmates and families, and the Royal Room’s concern for our staff, the hard decision was made to cancel this event. We hope to reschedule when it is safe to do so.
Thanks for your understanding.

Julia Francis is a Seattle-based singer-songwriter. Her music is deeply rooted in the blues legacies of women like Gertrude “Ma” Rainey and Billie Holiday among others. KBCS describes her voice as “howling, blistering…like Bessie Smith and Sister Rosetta Tharpe colliding with Slick, Joplin and Tedeschi.” Francis sees her voice as a powerful tool for healing and uniting people, making her performance a moving and uplifting one so you better hold on.

“Francis’s style of singing, which is deliberate, dynamic, and brandishing a slightly jagged edge similar to the 1970s icon Janis Joplin, feels apt, given the very 1970s free thinking mindset of the song itself.”– American Songwriter Magazine
