Freddy & Francine is an Americana-soul duo comprised of Lee Ferris & Bianca Caruso. With voices reminiscent of Van Morrison and Aretha Franklin, their songs blend soul, R&B, folk, and Americana with a modern, yet timeless, appeal.
The duo has released two EPs and three full-length CDs since 2008 and has performed at NYC’s Madison Square Park and at such notable festivals as Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Sister’s Folk Fest, and this year’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
“Ferris and Caruso have found their respective vocal soulmates, the kind of perfect harmonies that send a gripping shiver down the backbone of the listener”
-The Deli Magazine
“There is definitely a palpable chemistry between these musicians, with their vocals blending like milk and honey.”
