Karima has toured the UK and Europe extensively with her captivating performances She has graced the major stages supporting such artists as Paul Simon/ The Stereophonics / Jack Savoretti / Patti Smith and Amy Winehouse

Having begun playing drums at 13, Karima Francis self-taught guitar and songwriting at the age of 18. Not long after, her debut album - The Author was released on independent record label Kitchenware Records, produced by the gifted Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paulo Nutini). She was named as a number one act to watch in 2009 by the Observer. The Author effortlessly found common ground with Franciss audiences. Its a song-driven album, entwined with melodic textures and innovative musical progressions. This emotionally rich album was met with critical acclaim for both her vocals and songwriting. Franciss performance on BBCs iconic music show Later with Jools Holland in 2010, was the icing on the cake for the Authors success.

In 2012 Francis returned with her second album The Remedy produced by Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins). Prior to the release, Francis spent some time in LA where she wrote her most crowd-pleasing single Wherever I go with the likes of Linda Perry. Released on Vertigo records, the Remedys betterment proved just how prolific Francis is as an artist.

Karima Francis self-released her third album Black in 2015 produced by Dan Austin [Doves / Cherry Ghost / Kid Wave]. Blacks ambient sounds went hand in hand with Franciss astonishing vocals.

Francis is now experimenting with new sonics and wider musical arrangements, whilst in focus on production and writing her fourth album, making us all eager of what's yet to come
