The Story of Francis
Francis Dey is the epitome of a “Crooner Extraordinaire.” Dey delivers the authentic, passion-filled vocal phrasings of a legendary saloon singer. His electrifying stage presence, and “born-to-perform personality,” rivals the very best in the business. Francis Dey personifies great crooners like: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. and Bobby Darin.
His album, “Sincerely Yours,” is a testament to the authenticity of what crooning is really about. The album features a genuine, New Orleans based, horn section, carefully selected classics, and an original, “Kill Me Kindly,” written by Eric Chesher, (formerly of Capitol Records). Paying homage to the rat pack, Sincerely Yours is available on iTunes. A lifelong entertainer, Dey’s landmark career is reaching new heights.
Dey’s superb talent, and intense passion for the art of live performance, have kept him in demand, and on tour.

Tours also included dates in Ottawa, Vancouver, British Columbia, and a special invite performance at the Montreal “Olympic Games.” His overseas appearances have included performances in: Tahiti, China, Japan, Australia, South Africa and Europe.
