Francois Klark Releases Soulful, Blues/Jazz-Infused Single, “Bedtime Stories”

Francois Klark has just released “Bedtime Stories,” a soulful jazz and blues-infused pop-leaning ballad with a comforting message of being worry-free.



Award-winning Toronto musician, singer-songwriter, and producer Francois Klark released his exceptional sophomore album, Adventure Book, earlier this year, earning him a coveted feature on NPR’s Live Sessions. As his final single of the year, Francois has just released “Bedtime Stories,” a soulful, jazz and blues-infused pop-leaning ballad drenched in impeccable harmonies, soulful horns, and a warm, comforting message of being worry-free.

Elegant and alluring, Klark’s latest ballad showcases his incredible talents as an artist and producer, once again leaving listeners in awe of his out-of-this-world musical craftsmanship. Delicately weaving pop elements with notable styles from the worlds of blues and jazz with orchestral sounds, “Bedtime Stories” is as adventurous as the album it comes from.

With the sophisticated poise of the layered horn section, the song evokes the ambiance of a velvet-cushioned Jazz bar of the 1920s, offering a nostalgic yet modern take on the sounds from way back when.
