Album Notes
Wow, this album is finally done! It was a true labor of love; deep, beautiful, low-rockin tracks were laid down in 2004 with Jay Bellerose, Paul Bryan, Jerome Deupree, Chris Rival, Pacey Foster, Eric Paull, Scott Corneille and Terri Brosius. Turntables wound through guitars and organs and thick drums sang out and voices told stories and the whole piece took you away and then left you back where you were, forever holding onto the goods you found on the trip.

Then, life overtook many of the band members, money was tight, and Franc had a baby boy. The band played on (!) and six years later, Steady was mixed and mastered and is eager to be devoured.

She grew up in rural PA with two 8-tracks that came with their used station wagon: Creedence and Cabaret. She learned each to the note but Creedence stuck to her bones. Five older sisters added Beatles, Armatrading and Cocker, Franc studied classical guitar (fast forward through art school), played solo, and then started a band in 1990. The Franc Graham Band played to crowded rooms in Boston and Cambridge and recorded three albums. Lucinda Williams called her and a tour was promised, but only lasted for one gig the night before 9/11, when all bets were off. The FGB, bent but not broken, played on, recorded "Steady" and has now re-formed with Boston's best players.

More on the sound? The band has been described as low rock, swamp rock, alt-americana, hillbilly hip... Low string grooves, turntables and guitars weaving through and under a voice and lyrics entirely Graham's own. Chrissy Hinde meets Lou Reed. A genre unto itself; grit and groove, poetry without pretention, mood without moodiness.
"Cool and commanding." - Boston Globe
"Modern, mesmerizing, slow, atmospheric alterna-groove rock, with a touch of blue." - Soundcheck
"Her blues-inflected rock is electric poetry, rock with emotion and a snaky, tough groove." - Ink 19
