Just a Breath - full length album (released August '04)


Feeling a bit camera shy


IN A NOISY WORLD filled with sounds and images, we cry out for an authentic voice -- one who is not afraid to speak truth and purpose to a generation. In singer/songwriter Francesca Battistelli, we have found that voice.

With an upbeat and life-empowering message of fresh hope, this beautiful young woman sings of her passion for life and God and her determined purpose to be all He intended her to be...challenging listeners to take risks, cross self-imposed boundaries and pursue God with all of their hearts. In the title track of her debut album JUST A BREATH she sings, "I want to be caught up in you, I'm standing on the edge of tomorrow, and I want to live my life in your shoes, for I am just a breath..."

Her voice evokes the power and aching soulfulness of Eva Cassidy while her songs capture the originality of John Mayer. She's taken on a major role as the sole writer and co-producer of her first full-length album, effortlessly weaving stories that catch your ear while captivating your heart. Ivan's Song, which was birthed out of a young friend's tragic loss, speaks life and hope to the broken-hearted. "God has a purpose in every plan," she sings, "even when we can't understand."

Influences of Jazz, Gospel, Rock and R&B saturate her music with a rich and expressive style. From the sophisticated jazz feel of Kings Out of Fools to the rock infused I'm Here, Francesca's music crosses boundaries. "Id like my CD to be the first thing people listen to in the morning. It's the kind of music that puts you in the right mindset for the day and encourages you to go for it, pursue your dreams and take risks. I hope my music challenges you to find what you're good at and to do it the best way you know how!" she says.
Francesca believes that she is called to bring encouragement to the discouraged and hope to the hopeless. She knows with every fiber of her being that God created each of us with incredible potential and purpose, and wants her listeners to seek that purpose with passion and without fear. In her song Acquainted she sings, "you're always by my side improving me, not a day goes by when you're not moving me."

She in turn moves us. With humility she offers her debut project...JUST A BREATH.
