UK contemporary pianist and composer Alexis Ffrench has unveiled his beautiful new single ‘Waterfalls' - out now on Sony Music. Following his recent sold-out performance at the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room at the end of 2018, this eagerly-anticipated new single starts Ffrench’s New Year in style.
Following his previous singles - the double A-side ‘Radiate’ / ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, with half a million streams combined and the launch single ‘Bluebird’, which now boasts two million streams across all platforms, ‘Waterfalls’ conjures up a dreamlike state, with its melodic piano and atmospheric strings.
Noted Alexis Ffrench: ““‘Waterfalls’ is inspired by the extremes and inherent fragility of the human experience. Loss, love, birth, sorrow, triumph and despair. Sentiments summed up by E. M Forster.
‘The ends of the earth, the depths of the sea, the darkness of time, you have chosen all three’”
With over 50 million streams to date and now over a million active Spotify listeners a month, Alexis Ffrench is already an established star in the streaming world, leading the way for the new generation of classical artists, with his music speaking to a very wide and diverse audience and transcending all boundaries and genres. With a brand new album in the works and an exciting partnership with Modest! Management, home to artists including Little Mix, Olly Murs and more, 2018 already looks very exciting for this exceptional musician.
As likely to be found listening to Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper as Bach, Alexis Ffrench’s combination of classical training and love for R&B and roots music has helped define his unique sound. Trying to break the rigorous and academic preconceptions of classical music, Alexis Ffrench now finds himself as one of the leading voices of a new wave of composers, redefining a genre made accessible by artists of the stature of Ludovico Einaudi and Michael Nyman.
Throughout his studies and early career, Alexis Ffrench was awarded an array of prizes and scholarships for his exceptional musicianship.
2018 will see Ffrench working on his new album for summer release. His prominence in the digital world shows that his music speaks to many people and he is at the forefront of an exciting movement to make classical music more accessible for all.
