"Folk singer Rod Francis boosts book and magazine sale in Sao Paulo"

Francis’ acoustic sets at bookstores contributed to an increase of 27% in sales of books and magazines in January; Paulista Bookstore wants exclusivity.

São Paulo, SP, July 05, 2010 -- June was a great sales month for the three biggest bookstores in São Paulo, and their owners are very grateful for the captivating acoustic performance of the folk singer Rod Francis. The artist has been packing Paulista, Saraiva and FNAC bookstores with his weekly acoustic sets, and customers have not only been purchasing much more, but also spreading the word around the artist’s inspiring music and his interactive performance. Now, after discovering that together their sales increase amounted to 27% compared to the average monthly sales, Paulista bookstore prepares an exclusivity contract for the artist. - SESC Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.



Rod Francis is a folk singer who carries his acoustic guitar, a soft voice and a lot of charisma everywhere he performs. With influences that range from Bob Dylan to Dave Matthews Band, he creatively blends different rhythms that harmonize perfectly and create unique sounds. Often compared to Nick Drake and David Gray, the touches of his South African roots make his music go beyond traditional folk, with some extra energy that cheers up any environment.
His entertaining acoustic performance has a sprinkle of humor that captivates the audience and leads them to interact and get completely involved in the friendly, positive climate. “A real complete show that truly entertains the audience, with a simplicity that makes you feel home”, were some of the words that SESC magazine used to define his performance.
Readers and coffee lovers make most of his audience, and in Francis’ opinion this is due to the philosophic meaning within the lyrics, which inspires and stimulates people’s minds, making perfect match to a good book and a cup of coffee.
