Fran w/ Tobacco City

Buy Tickets

On their second album, Leaving, Fran finds us at a crossroads of loss and possibility, borne  from the grief of isolation and the existential drama of a warming planet. In spite of this grief,  songwriter Maria Jacobson took the solitude of the past few years to commit to seeing reality  clearly. Jacobson was inspired by Alan Watts’ Wisdom of Insecurity, which examines the  difference between belief and faith: the former inviting constriction and holding on; the latter,  presence and letting go. Jacobson sought to let go of the roles and ambitions that had  previously defined her.
